My daughter worked her way through college as a New York City Bicycle Messenger. This is the trailer from the documentary which she appears briefly at :53….it still gives me chills to watch.
From the dvd jacket:
PEDAL is a documentary about New York City’s bicycle messengers. All of the footage in this film was taken between 1998 and 2000. In 2001 PEDAL premiered at the South by South West Film Festival and was later acquired by the Sundance Channel, where it aired through 2004.
…. and she walked away from that accident without a scratch ! My crazy daughter is just fine. 🙂 She recently opened her own bike shop in Brooklyn.
The entire documentary “Pedal” is available at your favorite blog’s Amazon.com fundraising link.
Just search “Pedal” by Peter Sutherland on Amazon. And yes, my kid still gets residuals.
