In episode 1 of Velo Visionaries, we talk/ride with Chris Carlsson, one of the original co-founders of San Francisco's Critical Mass. He also co-founded Shaping San Francisco, a participatory community history project documenting and archiving overlooked stories and memories of San Francisco. Chris is the author of three books, "Nowtopia," "Vanished Waters: A History of San Francisco's Mission Bay," and "After the Deluge."
Traveling by bicycle provides a unique perspective on your surroundings, often inspiring moments of insight and creating a profound connection to your community.
Velo Visionaries presents a series of interviews with great thinkers of today's global bicycle culture from the point of view of the person behind the handlebars.
This series was created by filmmaker and bike blogger Kristin Tieche. Apart from the sit-down interviews themselves, all scenes were filmed by bicycle.
