Raise your hand if you’ve ever sneered at a recumbent rider. Well, I tell you, one of these days we’re all going to have blown knees, bad backs and sore arms and I don’t know about you but I sure as hell don’t want to give up riding.
Now, I’m not exactly saying I’ll for sure be riding a recumbent, but after watching Bent, a documentary about recumbent culture that debuts in our Bikers Win program, I gotta say that I’m done with the sneers and jeers. Recumbents may not exactly be the new fixies, but they certainly do give them a run for their money. I mean, no attitude? That aspect right there is worth quadruple it’s weight in titanium.
Anyway, check out their poster (click for larger). They’re stoked (rightly so) to be in this year’s festival. And I’ll tell you what, it’s not our only recumbent movie.
