BBC Airs Exc. Video About The Bicycle, its Impact, and its Past, Present and Future

From the book "It's All About the Bike: The Pursuit of Happiness On Two Wheels" by Rob Penn, in the above video, the author, travels from his home in London to Italy, the San Francisco Bay Area and Portland, to buy the components he needs for his dream bike. This as he also sees how a lot of his bike parts are built. Rare footage of present day  Charlie Kelly and Joe Breeze, the inventors of the Mountain bike, rolling down Mt Tam is also included. 

A lawyer who traded in his pin stripe suit for a three year bike journey around the world, his video touches on the history of the bike, how it always flourishes when times are tight, and what it means and has meant to our evolution as a species. Very well done stuff!!
