The Guardian.

The art of cycling on film.  An article about bikes and art.  Talking about the longstanding fascination between humans and cycling.
"No other icon in sport or transport has retained such constant or potent significance. The car, once all open road and opportunity, now evokes the dystopia of Jeremy Clarkson and carmageddon . The train has surrendered its Brief Encounter romance to the absurdity of leaves on the line, and the misery of the sweaty commute."
"Speaking to Cyclescreen, writer Rob Penn pointed out that the introduction of the safety bicycle in the 1880s was a revolution not just in transport but society, bringing health, freedom and opportunity to millions. 125 years on, as cycling for work, leisure and health increases, the revolution continues."

We were mentioned as well!!  Phoawwrrrr!  "the bike as catalyst of urban creativity is celebrated in the Papergirl project of Berlin , Manchester and Bristol"
