Links to film clips that I like - except ”Music to go cycling by” videos, which has its own page. Because these are favourites I just add to the bottom so I keep being reminded of some of the past greats as I scroll down!
Updated 2nd September 2012: “Bond” from Mario Cipollini
My first video link – there can be only one:
There is a back story to this clip. When CTC published a link to the Danny Macaskill video it was one of the only times I got official complaints. Retired police officer Phil from Portsmouth is someone whose opinion I rate and company I enjoy, but he thought it was deeply irresponsible to promote it. We agreed to disagree!
The catchiest bike ride ever.
Cool latin lovers
Thanks to Kevin Hickman, CTC campaigner for the brilliant link below, its a few years old, but don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t be cool and a cyclist after seeing this.
This one’s for Ben

Graeme Obree – inspirational!
Blogger “Fearless and Unique” put me on to this brilliant film about Graeme Obree some weeks ago and I have only just got round to putting in the link. Thanks Markus.
Corny but fun
They said “My take on this pretty awesome video by American young designers Holstee.I don’t know, it’s corny and I bet I am going to get some sarcastic comments on this, but my bike is my freedom and to me it also marked some pretty big lifestyle changes. So there, enjoy!”
I totally agree

One of the highlights of the Eurobike cycle show was the release of this brilliant short film from Mario Cipollini’s bike brand.
Super Mario was at the show and attracted a bigger following than a lot of the current stars – and this video maintains his reputation as the sport’s best showman. Nice bikes too.
