  1. Fantastic, evocative clip! I can’t wait to see more. Did you complete the video? Biking from Missoula, Montana to Jasper, Alberta was just a tiny taste of what you did, and even that was amazing. We’ve been writing a lot about bicycles in urban settings: http://raxacollective.wordpress.com/2011/09/18/color-wheels/ but much of what we do centers on nature and wilderness areas (and preserving them). Take a look!

    I would love to repost this video!

        Hello, Marcus. We’re a nonprofit bicycle advocacy group in Puerto Rico. We’d be interested in showing Pushing North to audiences in Puerto Rico, free of charge and strictly for educational purposes. Our objective is to motivate more people to ride their bicycles in Puerto Rico, especially in an urban environment and as a form of transport. We also want to show people in Puerto Rico what people in other parts of the globe are doing with their bicycles. By doing this, we hope to help develop a bicycle lifestyle and culture in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico has one of the highest concentration of cars and roads, per square mile, on Earth. We would like to see more bicycles here, and less cars. Would you be interested in helping us?

        Thanks for your consideration,

        Jorge Peredo

        Yes you can show case my video. Only on the conditions that I remain visibly accredited in the write up and that no alterations to the video be done. Cycling is a great alternative and keep pushing it man.
