About

To the Dutch, cycling is as normal as breathing. We don’t think about it, we just do it. Perhaps the fact that we don’t think about it, is the key to the bicycle’s success in this country. But because we do not give cycling a second thought, we don’t really know what the deeper needs of cyclists are. In the documentary ‘Why we cycle’ we take a ride with ordinary cyclists and specialists from a variety of disciplines. These conversations uncover some obvious, but even more hidden effects of cycling on people, on societies, and on the organization of cities. 

We're thrilled to finally bring this internationally screened film to Seattle.  Please join us at the Cascade Bicycle Center as we bring this terrific documentary to Washington for the first time!  We'll also be having a brief discussion about cycle culture and the Netherlands facilitated by Jeff Davis, a frequent Cascade presenter who has visited and ridden almost 3,000 miles in the Netherlands. Jeff will be joined by Dongho Chang, City Transportation Engineer for Seattle, and Vicky Clarke, Policy Director at the Cascade Bicycle Club.
