Flyt in partnership with DoT are thrilled to announce that we have secured the rights to bring the Taskovski Films documentary “Why We Cycle” to Perth this month. After a whirlwind worldwide tour of 30 other global cities, we get our chance to share with you what is a thought provoking documentary as much about Urban spaces as movement.
"To the Dutch, cycling is as normal as breathing. We don’t think about it, we just do it. Perhaps the fact that we don’t think about it, is the key to the bicycle’s success in this country. But because we do not give cycling a second thought, we don’t 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."
This not to be missed event will feature a special welcome video message and screening of the 1hr documentary. This event is kindly sponsored by the Department of Transport and all money raised from ticket sales is in aid of Perth based charity Bicycles for Humanity, to support their on-going work to provide bikes and bike workshops to communities across Africa.
