A little over two years ago, I started working on a documentary short about the quiet war between motorists and cyclists. I eventually put the project on hold because of a lack of subjects to feature in the short film. Today, I'm sharing the production draft of Road Wars so you can get an idea of what I'm trying to convey. A lot of the info is becoming dated, so I'll eventually need to pull new statistics and freshen things up.
Spokes explores what got us interested in bicycles at a young age: hopping on the seat, putting our feet on the pedals, and moving ourselves forward away from our concerns - if only for a few minutes. With all of the madness going on around us, there's nothing wrong with pedaling away from it from time to time. Sometimes we need to hit the reset button in our lives, and the bike is the perfect tool for the job.
