  2. Hill climbing is a niche within a niche. It was one of the original tests of a cyclists skill, the proving ground before time-trials and road races. Now somewhat forgotten, a hardcore band of thin-limbed riders spend their Autumn sacrificing beer and cake for a shot at amateur bike racing glory.

    Cuba underwent a bicycle revolution in the 1990s during its five year ‘Special Period’. Oil was scarce as a result of tough economic constraints, and throughout those years of austerity, bicycles where introduced as an alternative mode of transport. Thousands of Cubans used bicycles on a regular basis, as pedalling became the norm on the island.

    Years later, the transportation crisis subsided and motorised vehicles returned, and the country’s bicycle culture took a hit. Now, new bikes are difficult to come by and parts are not readily available, yet many Cubans still use bicycles daily and, despite the limited resources, a handful of mechanics provide a service to those who rely on their bikes in their everyday lives.

    Plenty of cyclists roam the streets of Havana and the rest of Cuba. Ángel, a typical bike riding Habanero, provides a brief insight into Cuban bicycle culture and the importance of bike mechanics in the capital as we come across both riders and repairmen.

  5. This is a short story about Oleg Timofejevich Odnolko, who spends a lot of time in Taiga (Evenkia region, central Russia) woods to hunt there.

    Hunting in the remote Taiga has become less profitable and much more difficult than it was some time ago. But all hard challenges that make others to step away do not scare him. Oleg is absolutely dependent on the nature and it seems that he even became a part of it – he is not an intruder, he belongs here, and he is not going to change his way of living as this is his home, his work, his wilderness.

    Almost like “The Last of the Mohicans” Oleg lives in Taiga wilderness, 130km away from closest village. It’s been 30 years, since he started to live and hunt by the Diupkun lake. Sometimes few men who come to help him on hunting matters stay there too.

    Cabin is heated by the little furnace, called “burzuika”. The word originates from “bourgeoisie”, and ironically connotes a warm and wealthy life. It is also used for cooking food. Always precisely clean and orderly, Oleg puts on his white gloves while frying meat cakes and is giving orders to his helpers like a head chief of a fancy restaurant.

    The huntsman’s day begins at 5 a.m. At daybreak, it’s always worth checking around the hut to see if there’s any easy prey walking within a bullet’s distance. If there’re no plans to hunt that day—shortly after breakfast the preparation for dinner begins. Soon after, the host Oleg and his helpers gather by the dinner table as if they were one family.

    “I’m not killing, I’m producing”, – with smile on his face Oleg explains his take on hunting.
    “It would not be easy, if possible at all to find him out there. He knows perfectly how to survive in Taiga. Trying to help him would be the same as trying to help deer or wolf”,- says Konstantin, a fellow hunter living in the closest village to Oleg’s cabin.

    Diupkun Lake is a place that “civilized” humans would find hard to survive. It is surrounded by woods and mountains - The Putorana Plateau, which covers the majority of Evenkia’s territory. In the local language “Putorana” means “flat like a table”.

    Frozen rivers and lakes are Oleg’s highways, when he is traveling with his snowmobile to and from his hut.

    Oleg The Hunter

    This monochrome evocation of a life lived in the depths of the Tiger forest in frosty Siberia has engrossed Projector Bike audiences every time it has been screened. If you have a penchant for the outdoors and have ever meandered philosophically on the subject of 'What the fuck are we all doing living in big shitty cities?', then this film will bring a warm glow to that restless soul of yours. Enjoy!

    The Velocipede Improbulator

    This gem was brought to our attention by a loyal Projector Bike rider, who is lucky enough to know the Velocipede himself! If you are interested in cycling, mechanics, DIY, or you just love a good portrait doco then your going to love this film. The film is lovingly crafted just like Matt's bikes, and the editing is superb. Velocipede Improbulator manages to capture Matt's eccentric bikes and personality with fantastic authenticity and vision. Enjoy!

    Bakfietsband

    Unsurprisingly here at Projector Bike we love films which feature bicycles, especially customised cargo bikes, and especially more cargo bikes customised so that eccentric jazz bands can play their grooves whilst rolling through the Netherlands! This incredible pean to jazz music and Dutch cycling culture in introduced with a sublime segment of animation. We love this film. Enjoy!
