[SAVE THE BIKE LANE] was one of the biggest project of [SEOUL got SOUL] series. (SEOUL got SOUL is a series of short documentray films that tells about fixed gear riders living in Seoul city). This film got selected for Bicycle Film Festival (BFF) 2011.
Seoul is not covered up with enough bike lanes compare to the size of the city, so the main purpose of this project is to create bike lanes on the road as a propaganda against Seoul city.
Seoul has been investing huge budget in its bike lane project since 1990s. The initial intention of the project itself was seemed promising. However, the city mistakenly did not consider diverse traffic conditions in each region. The bike lanes eventually caused traffic congestions, and turned out a massive parking space.
The already existing bike lanes along the sidewalks has been dominated by pedestrians and even trees for a long time. You will realize that there won't be any big change even if filing civil complaints. The yellow line on the left side of the logo means protection, so you can see it as we are here to save the bike lanes.
No cars are allowed.
One more Bike, One less Car

Do you know of Eritrea? If so, you’re amongst a minority. Many people have not heard of it, let alone know where to find it on the world map. So why then would an inadvertent figurehead of the global fixed gear scene travel there? Two reasons apply to Patrick Seabase. Firstly, Eritrea is a mountainous country with some spectacular roads. Secondly, it has a rich cycling tradition that is as yet mainly undiscovered.
ASMAWA is not just a film about “Euro-boy” riding brakeless down a mountain road in Africa. It is more the story of a pure-hearted athlete who discovers a new world – not least within himself.
