Back in July, I mentioned that Suli Yu, a video journalist from the Chinese branch of the Voice of America was shooting a piece about Portland’s bike scene.

Mr. Yu’s story will be broadcast on a weekly news magazine show called Cultural Odyssey and will be shown in every major hotel in China, translated into 44 languages and shown via satellite in cities around the world.

Mr. Yu just emailed me the link to the show on YouTube.

It’s in Chinese, but the interviews (with Mayor-elect Adams (he says he’s going for 20-25% bike mode share), planner Mia Birk, yours truly, the BTA’s Emily Gardner, framebuilder Andy Newlands, Clever Cycles mechanic Sara Stout, and many more!) are in English. Check it out:

This is great. I love the music selection and Mia doing her make-up in the bike mirror.

I liked how many awesome bike women were featured. It’s one of the ways Portland’s bike scene is special.
