A beautifully toned look at the struggle of everyday people to make the bicycle not only a viable, but safe, mode of transportation.” – Criterion Cast

Traffic gridlock around the world is frustrating people, wasting their time, polluting the air and contributing to climate change. Director Fredrik Gertten (BANANAS! and Big Boys Gone Bananas!) investigates the daily global spectacle of traffic and looks for solutions.

Following bicycle activists’ crusades to foster meaningful change, the film documents the struggle for bicyclists in a society dominated by cars. 

From bike activists in Sao Paulo and Los Angeles, fighting for safe bike lanes, to the city of Copenhagen, where forty percent commute daily by bike, Bikes Vs Cars considers the revolutionary changes that could take place if more cities made room for bicyclists.
