Short Film Profile

Personal Velocity

Two young urban riders weave their bikes through the frantic and unforgiving streets of New York City. Chris’ greatest passion is racing alley cats — underground bike races through the city’s hectic traffic. Bryan rides his bike at a different velocity — he knows far too well what might lie around the next corner.

Film notes

Personal Velocity portrays the beauties and the dangers of riding. It lets you experience chasing the perfect high and facing the ultimate low and what it means to keep pedaling.
