“If people say it’s impossible we have to prove them wrong.”
Design students Anna and Terese took on a giant challenge as an exam project. Something no one had done before. If they could swing it, it would for sure be revolutionary. The bicycle is a tool to change the world. If we use bikes AND travel safe: Life will be better for all.

CMP – Copenhagen Malmö Port
A 3.5 mile stretch of road in the middle of LA that is one of the city's busiest thoroughfares. I rode this route almost every day for more than two years, and know it like the back of my hand. Finally got around to filming it.
Los Angeles bikers often hate on riding Wilshire Blvd, due to it's inconsistent surfaces, heavy traffic, grimey air, and a variety of other legitimate reasons. But, to me, it's where I live and ride, and I have tons of fun doing it.
It's apparent that LA has a car problem. People need to ride more bikes.
