Thank You, Bicycle – A film by Lars Veenstra
Every now and then, through the mist of whips and roost, a film appears that make you think a bit more about why we do all this riding lark. Why would we go riding at night in the winter months or slog up massive hills to be rewarded with just a minute of downhill? Well Lars seems to have captured all of that in this great little video, he’s done a lot and ridden all over the place meeting new friends along the way. Here’s his take on the film:
For some time now, I wanted to put together something personal, something that really links filmmaking and the sport that brought me so much in life: riding bikes. Coincidentally my company exists for three years this week (HURRAY!), so this seemed like the perfect moment to look back and go back to my roots if you like. All footage is archive footage from the past five years of myself and of some of the people I met through my cycling adventures.
