BICYCLE LADIES
Canada 1990 | 35mm/Animated 15min.
Dir. Jill Haras
How is it women of today wear pants, are allowed to vote, and can ride bicycles?  All because of Victorian womens intense attraction to a new invention, that at the time, only men were allowed to use.  In Bicycle Ladies, the family butler recounts Maddy Endicotts scandalous behavior as she defies convention for the love of the bike.

THE SIX-DAY BICYCLE RACES
USA 2006 | DV 60min.
Dir. Mark Tyson
Discover the original American form of bicycle racing. Relive the excitement of movie stars, gangsters, and the best-paid athletes in the US on a journey that takes you from the glory years of American cycling through to the last throes of a once-great sport. This film traces the history of this completely forgotten sport from its early days in the 1880's through its sad demise in the 1950's. Over 40 hours of interviews with riders, supporters, family members and historians bring life to the rich tapestry that was the Six-Day Bicycle Race. This film shares the color and excitement of an era when a bike rider could make in six days what his father might earn in six years. More than 10 years in the making, the Six-Day Bicycle Race is a film that brings together the largest known collection of photographs, archival footage and personal recollections by and of people long since passed away.
