Cyclists’ Special, 1955

This short film is the perfect bucolic antidote to the cold, slush, and wind of the last week here in Minneapolis, December 2009. The weather forecast for next week looks to bring more of the same, at least in the first couple days; I’m hoping to squeeze a bike ride into the narrow window of Monday morning, but fear that the roads won’t be clear again until Thursday. Though these cyclists on their solid old bikes with their stiff upper lips would probably not be dissuaded by a little ice.

“There’s a bit of rough weather about; we can take it if we have to.”

Indeed!
