Before 2013, the New York Bicycle Film Festival was not very popular. Actually, it was limited to bikers. It has been around since the beginning of the new millennium. When you consider the proportions that it has grown to over the past two years- 2014 and 2015, there is a lot of change. It is a big deal in New York. This is partly because a large proportion of New York’s 8 million plus population is opting to ride to work. They have left the driving to the likes of Donald Trump. Riding a bicycle in New York is a perilous adventure. Every day there is the risk of being hit by a bus or some drunk driver.
Still, the biking spirit prevails across the state from Manhattan to Brooklyn and far beyond. The thing about New York is that it has something for everyone. The New York Bike Film Festival is ideal for everyone who loves bicycles and has a thing for going out and about using one. Most New Yorkers either walk to work or ride to work. The traffic hold-ups are just too much for many handle. If you are one of these people who love biking then you should make an effort to attend these events. You are guaranteed to interact with other like-minded people.
