    Fresh from the Kona Productions Crew, How Bikes Make Cities Cool – Portland, is a five-minute mini documentary that explores the thriving bicycle culture resident to one of North America’s most progressive metropolises. Filmed entirely by bike, with support from longtime Kona Portland dealer Sellwood Cycles and resident Team Kona athletes Erik Tonkin and Matthew Slaven, we spent the better part of a week talking to commuters, following kids to school and capturing the friendly vibe and funky nature of a city that embraces self-propelled commuting at the heart of its identity.

        With the competition quickly heating up nationwide to see which city can become the nation's best bike city, Minneapolis has plenty going for it. After all, they have been anointed the "mantle" by Bicycling magazine who chose Minneapolis its #1 bike city in 2010. One of the biggest reasons is thanks to the Minneapolis-St. Paul region having nearly 100 miles of greenways and off-street paths so residents can safely and quickly commute. And by far the most well known of those paths is the 5.7 mile long Midtown Greenway, which cuts thru the heart of Minneapolis from east to west, giving city denizens and easy way to travel. The path has not just been good for cyclists, runners, and families, but business and real estate. Thanks goes to the Bikes Belong Foundation for this third in a series of Streetfilms we were able to produce this summer from Minneapolis.

                For many, the idea of riding a bike in New York is a terrifying prospect. This documentary film explores the current state of cycling in New York. Interviews with members of cycling community as well as Paul Steely White of Transportation Alternatives, address the importance of making New York a better place to live by creating safer streets. New York City’s Department of Transportation (DOT) has taken efforts to make the city safer for cyclists in response to cycling’s rise in popularity. However, obstacles such as potholes, unsafe access to bridges, and non-continuous bike lanes are just a few of the hazards that exist for bikers. In 2005, 21 bikers were killed on in New York City and are memorialized by the ghost bike project. This film looks at the design of Bike Lanes in New York City through the lens of a first time cyclist. This project was created as part of a collaboration between the Hunter IMA / MFA program and the Hunter Urban Affairs and Planning graduate program

                      Since this has been an such amazing year for NYC bike commuting (after all Bicycling Magazine now says we are the #1 bike city, right?) two dear friends of Streetfilms (Steven O'Neill & Brooklyn Spoke's Doug Gordon) who frequently ride the Manhattan Bridge bike path joined me this morning to count some bicycles. We spent 20 minutes during the AM rush hour (specifically 8:49 am to 9:09 am) tallying commuters just for the fun of it. It was a beautiful morning for riding and the numbers didn't disappoint - you'll need to watch the short video to find out the final tally. But the count was not shocking to anyone riding in NYC, after all the Manhattan Bridge has seen the numbers of bike commuters swell over the last five years, and the advent of Citi bike has only made the growth continue. The October 2013, 12-Hour screenline count from NYC DOT was 4,004/day. Of course our one hour average came out much higher than that but it was done during rush hour. It will be interesting to see 2014's numbers yield.
