GO BICYCLE BEFORE IT´S TOO LATE from sanitov on Vimeo.

It used to be like this. In Portland, there are so many bikes on the road now, it is nearly as stressful as drivng or catching the bus. I end up racing lycra-clad road-racers on a daily basis just to get ahead of everyone so I can have a bit of rolling solitude. I don't want a race. I just want the wind in my hair and a bit of space but damned if I don't get sucked in. Soon it will be just a handful of us again, in the relentless rain and knuckle freezing breeze, mashing away, dreaming of a day off like last Tuesday, offshore winds and glassy head high waves with no one around.
