Travel Shorts

Presented by Arkel

Bicycle adventures take us places no car ever could. From the vantage point of a saddle, the world is suddenly more vibrant. It’s all about the sites, scents, sounds and the amazing people you meet along the way. Join us for a night of getting lost in the landscape as we tag along on the bike adventures of cyclists around the globe. The power of the bicycle has never been more evident than in this program of short bike movies from around the world.

Bike for Bread | 26:08
Claude Marthaler, Raphaël Jochaud – France
In the beginning of the world was the Nile, and then came bread and cycling. Over a solid half-century, Cairo has invented an unusual means of delivering bread. As if they were tightrope walkers, the city’s cyclists soar like shooting stars, zooming up one-way streets against endless lines of cars, slipping between the rows of chairs of a café, and disappearing into a bazaar. One hand serves to balance a wooden rack on their heads, bearing hundreds of rounds of bread, and the other rests on the handlebar. The future of these figures, so familiar in Cairo, remains nonetheless as precarious as that of the Sphinx. Cyclonaut, Claude Marthaler, went there in person to tell the life story of one of Cairo’s bread deliverymen.
