Ah, the Bicycle Film Festival is on again! It premieres this week, hitting up Liverpool, Ireland, Portland, Ore. and Chicago, Ill.  The founding director, Brendt Barbur, started the festival when he was hit by a bus while bike riding in New York City. He turned his experience into a yearly set of events celebrating biking culture, beginning with the first film fest in 2001.

Festival events take place in a number of international cities throughout the summer. Check out a montage of some of the films from previous years:
