Kobra on bicycle culture

The Swedish television show Kobra has made this nice program on the rise of global bicycle culture. The interviewed people are a photographer of Rouleur, Camille McMillan, the blogger and “the danish bicycle ambassador”, Mikael Coolville-Andersen, Talking Heads front man, artist and bicycle enthusiast, David Byrne, and the Danish architecture firm Gehl Arhchitects which got the task of making Mexico City cyclist-friendly. Some of the talking is in Swedish, but most of the stories are actually in English, so you non-scandinavians can still enjoy parts of it, and I recommend you do.

"...but when they get on their bikes they become fluid...poetry" - Camille McMillan
