A film following the Gdansk Cycling Campaign as it prepares for its Grand Bicycle Ride in the summer of 2003.
A colourfull insight into the remarkable rise of cycling as a mode of transport in this Polish city, in the context of growing consumption and car culture accross the ex-communist states. The film highlights the connections between this growing car and consumerist culture and climate change, promoting cycling as one grassroots solution. The campaign is run by OLE Obywatelska Liga Ekologiczna / the Citizens Environmental League, a local group of young people who have been taking amazingly effective action on cycling for several years.
