The Cyclist by Kees Hin

Cyclist, The

The Cyclist shows what bike culture brings about in the city and cross society at large.

Cycling accompanies us all our lives. The feeling of riding on the back of a bike; first with your father or mother, later with your sister or brother, and then with your first sweetheart. Primal instincts are triggered on the bike: cycling is an existential, sensual subject, when seen from our perspective. Cycling is fast, vital, dangerous. In this film cyclists talk about the myriad ways that the bicycle plays, or has played, a significant role.
