Video: Thank You, Bicycle

This video expresses a sentiment that I’m sure many of us can relate to. It was created by filmmaker and pro rider Lars Veenstra and serves as a love letter to his bicycle. In it he shares everything he has learned over the years by riding his bike, with lessons that go well beyond just cycling. He talks about how his bike has taken him to the far corners of the globe, given him a sense of freedom, and challenged him to get better as a rider and a person. The short video includes some amazing clips of Lars riding amazing trails, performing daring stunts, and crashing more times than he cares to remember. In short, it perfectly encapsulates the lifestyle of a mountain biker, and I think you’ll like it very much.
