The Red Bicycle

The manufacture and sale of a Raleigh illustrates what it means to live in a developing country. Shot in Nairobi in 1971, this short film is a great reminder that the vast majority of people around the world still get around by bike.

Cool video.

One or two issues back the feature article in Bicycle magazine was about the use of bicycles for traveling health workers. Several groups donated several hundred bikes to these groups. Because of control freak local administrators, though, almost all of these bikes remained locked up in the shipping containers they arrived in. It's a total shame.
