RIDE SEATTLE: Filmed by bike

by Eric Shalit on January 6, 2015

I’m re-posting this short film I made in 2009 as a celebration of the beginning of summer. As much as I love to ride bikes, I am equally fascinated with bike culture. In 2009, a 4-day bike extravaganza called the Westside Invite was held in Seattle on Memorial Day weekend.

I filmed some of the events with a 5-oz. digital GoPro Video Camera mounted on the handlebar of my bike. Below is a short film I made from footage of a group ride from Cool Guy Park on Capitol Hill to Anarchy Point in South Park on the Duwamish River. Music is ‘Space Walk’ by ‘Lemon Jelly”. One of my favorites!
