When writer-actor John Leguizamo shows up to do a show in New York, fans outside the theater are surprised to see him ride up on a bicycle. “People go, ‘Hey, John, I thought you’d be in a limo.’
“This is my limo, my green limo,” says the bike riding performer.
In this video, Leguizamo gives his tips on riding in the city.
H/T to Neil in Portland, OR via Cyclelicious on Facebook. More about John Leguizamo and bicycling at CNN. On the “behind the scenes” story on CNN’s blog, producer Jarrett Bellini emphasizes the perceived danger of filming on the streets of New York City while hanging off of the back of a pedicab. I like the response Clarence Eckerson (the Streetfilms guy) gave to the CNN people.
This is tomorrow, folks! Get your tickets here. Sorry for the late notice.
As urban cycling expands by leaps and bounds, how is bicycle culture changing? The image and ethos of commuters, racers proponents of “cycle chic” and outlaw cycling vie with each other to define what it means to be an urban cyclist. Transportation Alternatives brings together leading pundits of bicycle culture to debate the bike culture issues:
* Do cyclists need to rehabilitate their public persona?
* To what extent should safety trump convenience and style?
* Will protected bike lanes segregate cyclists?
* Is Critical Mass a boon or a liability for the bike movement?
* What can be done about sexism in the cycling community?
