when we ride our bikes.
We continue to be excited by Liz Canning's crowd-sourced cargo bike documentary, (R)Evolutions per Minute. After months of thinking about it, but not doing anything about it, we finally got a move on this weekend to do some cargo bike filming. Most exciting, a friend who is a filmmaker kindly volunteered two hours of her time and came over Sunday to film some short interviews we conducted with local cargo-bike-riding families.
Then, one of these folks passed along a mount for a Flip video camera which we could velcro to our handlebars to try and capture some riding footage. We gave it a go the next day as we rode downtown together. I rode the Xtracycle, one son on the back, the camera mounted on my handlebars, capturing P in front of me with our two other fellas on the Yuba. The quality of this video is pretty weak (don't get sick from the shakiness), BUT it does show the ease in which my boys ride on the back of our bikes, interacting with each other and the world around them.
