Thank you, bicycle

We could all use to thank our bicycles now and then, and this video does a nice job of summing up feelings that many of us have for our bikes and for the things we’re all able to do because of them.

Thank You, Bicycle From Lars Veenstra:

For some time now, I wanted to put together something personal, something that really links filmmaking and the sport that brought me so much in life: riding bikes. Coincidentally my company exists for three years this week (HURRAY!), so this seemed like the perfect moment to look back and go back to my roots if you like.

All footage is archive footage from the past five years of myself and of some of the people I met through my cycling adventures.
