Cycling Thu Feb 19 2009

...and Action!

Have you a hankering for the klieg lights and sprockets? Have you filmed you and your friend's bike shenanigans, from racing to tricks to cruising? Do you know anything about plot? (The last point is probably the most important.)

If so, the Bicycle Film Festival is looking for submissions for its 2009 film festival which will likely make its way to Chicago sometime in mid-summer. The cost of entry is free, but the deadline is March 7, 2009. There's not much time between now and then to put together a huge extravaganza on wheels, but think of a profile of a local racer or messenger. There hasn't been a dearth of films about alleycats, but what about the guy who delivers your sandwich? What about the Hi Guy?
