Posted by on January 18th, 2007 at 11:32 am

The Willamette Week has the scoop on a full-length documentary in the works about Portland’s bike scene.

The film’s creators — Greg Fredette, Jason Turner and Aaron Douglas — added more information in an email to the Shift list yesterday:

“We began filming on January 13th at the MOVE event and will continue documenting the bike scene through various events, workshops, interviews and…well, we can’t give away all our secrets.

We will be focusing on the social network and bike community in Portland, and the benefits for the community. We are trolling the web-waves looking for interesting events. If you have an event you think would meet any of these criteria:

1) Present active conflict
2) Make great video
3) Demonstrate the social networking aspects of the Portland bike scene”
