Well if this video doesn’t make you want to go out and rescue a bike…maybe it will motivate you to gift one to someone on your Christmas list? The Bicycle, a short film by Chris McCoy & Adam Neustadter, is featured as one of Vimeo’s Staff Picks this week. It’s worth a watch… filmed in LA from Venice Beach to Los Feliz.
When it’s over…consider one of our favorite local (and almost local) bike shops to find the bike you are going to want after watching this great bike story!
