“Bicicles” is a film celebrating those people who refuse to stop biking in the face of snow and sleet. Filmed during the winters of 2014 - 2016, the documentary follows four "brave" souls on their typical winter commute. Along with interviews with city councillors, business organizations and everyday cyclists, “Bicicles” explores how winter cycling is becoming mainstream in a city full of drivers.
