Afghan Cycles Trailer

Crowd sourcing has its low moments and its high moments. I’d say this is the latter…

“Afghan Cycles is a feature documentary about a new generation of Afghan women pushing gender and cultural barriers by riding bicycles.

The film follows a diverse and growing group of women who are risking their honor and their lives for the joy and liberation of riding a bicycle. From rural cycling clubs to a National Cycling Team, these women are ushering in a new era for a country slowly awakening to global influence and inevitable cultural change. Intertwined, their stories lead us on a journey into a country of beauty and contradictions, through decades of upheaval and repression, to today; their innocent act of revolution a harbinger of a brighter future for women in traditionally male-dominated societies around the globe.”

Bicyclists of Baltimore

This Indiegogo campaign looks like a worthy share:

“Bicyclists of Baltimore started out as a social media project to celebrate the diversity of bicyclists in Baltimore City. After experiencing the uprising in Baltimore this past May we wanted to contribute something even greater to the unification of our community. By creating a documentary film we not only celebrate individuals, but bring them together in a visually compelling narrative that transcends social and economic barriers.

We follow the lives of bicyclists from all corners of Baltimore exploring how the increase in cycling in Baltimore helps to shape the city as a whole, and strengthen our different communities. We examine the ways in which Baltimore, a city with deep socio-economic and racial divides, can become united through the use of a human-powered vehicle.”

The Radavist 2015 Calendar: September
RAD_SEPT2015-1100

This is the ninth layout of the Radavist 2015 Calendar, entitled “Morning Wheelie”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.

The Marin Headlands is an easily-accessed stomping grounds for many SF locals. Visible from the Golden Gate Bridge and Hawk Hill, trail runners, hikers and cyclists alike find refuge from the busy city life in its hills. Early mornings bring about a dense marine layer and piercing sunshine, which makes for an awe-inspiring experience. Throw in a wheelie and you’ve got all the ingredients for a killer photo.

This photo in particular was requested by multiple people to be the September calendar image. Thanks for the recommendation, y’all!

For a high-res JPG, suitable for print and desktop wallpaper*, right click and save link as – The Radavist 2015 Calendar – September. Please, this photo is for personal use only!
