Spoke: The Hazards Of Cycling Doco

by editors on October 3, 2012

On September 29, 2012 filmmakers Lauren Gardner, Nick Navarro and Em Baker left San Francisco on bikes to make a documentary film “exploring the hazards of cycling in the U.S.” according to a story in the Santa Cruz Sentinel.

Gardner, Nick Navarro and Em Baker. . . plan to spend the next three months traversing the country, ending up in St. Augustine, Fla., widely considered one of the most dangerous places for cyclists in the country. Their footage and interviews will be turned into a documentary titled “Spoke.” . . “We want to examine the hows and whys” of bicycle-car accidents, she said, and explore the various types of infrastructure in place across the country. . . “We don’t want to create a perspective that’s biased — we are trying to represent all different viewpoints,” Baker said. . . Along the way, the trio will be meeting with families affected by bicycle accidents, law enforcement, cycling advocates and many others.

You can help the filmmakers complete their trip and their movie by making a contribution on Kickstarter. Click this link for more information.
