I Bike Copenhagen: Song + Video

What’s better than a Danish music video about cycling in Copenhagen? Not a whole lot.

Don’t speak Danish? Not to worry, Copenhagenize has the lyrics for you.

Bikelordz: Bike Culture in Accra, Ghana

Thanks to Portland Design Works for tipping us off to this cool Kickstarter project last week:

Bikelordz is a short documentary about the self-taught, self-invented bicycle culture which young people in Accra, Ghana have created and passed on to their younger contemporaries over time. It follows crews of these young bicycle gurus as they try and use their skills to make money, gain recognition, and live on their own terms.

All images in Bikelordz were shot in Ghana and all of the music is Ghanaian. It focuses on a young BMX movement which thrives amid adverse circumstances which are particularly urban Ghanaian but undeniably universal.

Support the project here.

With My Own Two Wheels

“Look for solutions, not problems.” -Dan Eldon.

And what’s that solution? One of them just happens to be bikes. Check out the trailer to With My Own Two Wheels, an inspiring film about just why bikes are having an impact in all kinds of communities around the world.

Would You Ride a Wooden Bike?

While most of us might be interested in carbon frames, there are others out there who want something a little simpler. Enter the Splinter Bike, a bike made entirely out of wood, without a single piece of rubber or metal.

As if building an entirely wooden bike wasn’t enough, the team behind the Splinter Bike is attempting to set the Wooden Bike Land Speed Record — and by “set” we mean “create,” since such a feat has never been attempted before.

Pretty cool if you ask us.

Holy Hotness: Life Cycles

Every Wednesday on Ditch Your Car we’ll be bringing you just another reason to spend more time on two wheels. Be it a photo, a statistic or an inspirational video, we want to keep reminding you about why riding is great!

We could tell you why we like the trailer for Life Cycles, but we think you should just watch it for yourself. It’s pretty obvious why you should be exploring this world on two wheels.

Thanks to The Digital Naturalist for tipping us off to this gem!

It’s winter, which means it’s snow time. And that’s no excuse for not riding. Just look how beautifully they do it in Copenhagen. Makes you want to move there doesn’t it?
