indytorrents.org - From Portland With Bike Love

A collection of short videos made in Portland about bicycles. The films are really creative and varied. If you've been hearing a lot about all of the crazy bicycle stuff in Portland but didn't really know what was going on, this is a good introduction to it. Many of the facets of the Portland alternative bike community are represented here including ZooBomb, Bike Polo, Chunk 666, bike hauling and transportation, and some more creative artistic things (like the bicycle audio project). The collection leaves you with a feeling that you could not only go out and ride a bike but also make a short film about it!

I need to live my P-town Bike life through these videos. Milwaukee WI doesn't have near the bike culture I once thrived on.
