Streetfilms Looks at Bike Kitchen, Bike Oven, and Bikerowave

When I first moved to Los Angeles, people from the east coast warned me that I was going to get so frustrated with the car culture that it would drive me crazy.

What I discovered was something else.

True, the car-oriented culture seems so ingrained with so many city officials that sometimes it does feel like transit and bike activists are pushing a boulder up a hill, but I also found an activist community that has real heart.  A community full of good people, pushing the ball forward in a variety of different ways.

Nowhere is that more true than with the bike co-op culture.  Even with some key players out of town on the filming days, the essence
of the co-ops and the people that make them work shine through.

Normally when I post a Steetfilm I do a short write-up of the film, but I'm not going to do that this time.  If you can't view this film where you are now, watch it when you get home or next time you're in front of a computer with speakers.  This one is required viewing.
