Filmmaker Ryan Henry Mekenian has a new short film called Spokespeople which showcases many aspects of bicycling in Los Angeles.

Spokespeople explores Justice for Woon, CicLAvia, the L.A. County Bicycle Coalition, group rides, and several L.A. bike co-ops including The Bicycle Kitchen and BikeRoWave.
