Pedal for the people virtual bicycle film festival

I recently participated in the Boise Bicycle Project’s Pedal for the People event and curated this virtual bicycle film festival including the following categories:

  • Enjoy the Ride: These videos and films showcase some of the most inspired mountain, street trials, BMX, flatland, and fixed-gear riding on the web.
  • Bicycle Stories: This collection presents short films and mini documentaries about people who clearly love bicycles.
  • Biking Idaho: There are some great locations, stories, and riders here in Idaho. Here are some of their stories.

I also got to help promote the Bike Prom with this video and create a follow up video to a sunrise ride at Rhodes Skate Park. It was a great weekend.

OK Go on finding ideas

This TED talk by the band OK Go on finding vs creating ideas could be summed up with the Robert Frost quote, “No surprise for the writer, no surprise for the reader.”
