Line of Sight

16mm_lucas_taxiskitch_zenga_480I just got done watching “Line of Sight” – an alley cat racing film by Lucas Brunelle. Right off the bat I feel a bit conflicted writing about this movie. It is about alley cat races – which means a bunch of guys riding like jack asses; completely ignoring all traffic laws in a dense urban area. It is exactly what we DON’T want to encourage our children to do, and personifies each and every negative stereotype that uneducated motorists will hurl at us as we pedal on the run.

It is also one hell of a lot of fun to watch.

Bicycle Film Festival in Sac

The Bicycle Film Festival will be in Sacramento on May 12, 13 and 14th.

The festival showcases a number of bicycle-centric short films, ranging in length for just a couple of minutes to about 45 minutes.

The festival opens on the 12th with screenings at Sacramento’s Crocker Art Museum.  Things then go “outdoors” for Friday and Saturday night as activities move to Freemont park on 16th and Q street.  And perhaps not by chance, that park just happens to be across the street from the apparent center of the Sacramento cycling universe – Hot Italian.
