How do you experience your ride? The practicality and sustainability of bike commuting meets a world of style, sophistication, and beauty in Mario De Armas’ short film, “electric riders.” In collaboration with Nycewheels, Bionx, Walnut Studiolo, and Papillionaire; filmed, edited, and produced by Mario De Armas and Sandbox Studio.
“When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day’s sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay’s call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else’s heart.”
