I love it when Clarence Eckerson of BikeTV comes to town. The NYC resident, whose heart belongs to Portland bike fun, showed up at Breakfast on the Bridges last Friday and put together this fun and inspiring movie. It features interviews with volunteers and bike commuters who stopped for the free pastries and coffee.
Far beyond just documenting bike fun, Clarence does amazing work with his camera. He is the videographer for The Open Planning Project, a NYC-based non-profit with a mission to “build technology to enhance the role of the citizen in democratic society.” He’s currently in Portland researching an upcoming production about the history of the Mt. Hood Freeway.
Clarence also shared the great news that his Portland bike movies will finally be seen on local TV. Tune in to Portland Community Media (channel 23) on Mondays at 6PM for all the goodness.
