/ Nice film about bicycles
So there is a heaven and that's where I'm going!
What a lovely way to articulate the feeling of going for a ride.
Thank you, quite magical.
Obviously not a Strava-junkie then ;)
Not a philosophy I would necessarily recommend following to the letter if you are trying to negotiate rush-hour traffic! Anyway, he clearly demonstrates that you can do something else while riding a bike, since he combines it with taking his dog for a walk ;-)
The subject of the film is obviously a nice guy and very enthusiastic about bikes, and I admire what he's setting out to do in creating his collection. Some of his statements in the film, though, if taken literally seem uncomfortably close to woo-woo new age bs, which I find a bit off-putting. (Oh, and I also found the music annoying after a while.)
But apart from that, it's a pleasant and diverting couple of minutes or so. Thanks to UC for posting it here.
BUT... then there are those times when just going for a ride is all it's about!
