To the Dutch, cycling is as normal as breathing. Perhaps the fact that they do not think about it, is the key to the bicycle’s success in the Netherlands. Since the Dutch do not give cycling a second thought, they do not really know what the deeper needs of cyclists are. In the documentary “Why we cycle,” we take a ride with ordinary cyclists and specialists from a variety of disciplines. These conversations uncover some obvious, but even more hidden effects of cycling on people, on societies, and on the organization of cities.
After the screening, everyone is welcomed to stay on for a panel discussion about the rise of cycling in New Zealand and the Netherlands.
The movie is in Dutch with English subtitles.
