Here’s a quick little do-dad about The Pit. And I thought “Ace Bondage” is Johnny Midwest’s Rollerderby name. Two Ace Bondages in NY, really?
Caught this on Youtube with 9 views! Just want more people to enjoy.
Also, I was at The Pit today on my very own polo bike, a first since November, and with my camera in hand between games. Look for some fresh Bikes of Polo soon, plus an update of Chombo’s Joust after it has seen some games. And a quick set of life in The Pit on a spring day.
Watch this then follow the link to read some words from Ben of STL.

Submission Deadline: April 1
Submissions are now open for the Eleventh Annual Bicycle Film

The Bicycle Film Festival began in 2001 when Brendt Barbur, founding
director of the festival was hit by a bus while riding his bike in New
York City. He insisted on turning his negative experience into a
positive one. The Bicycle Film Festival is a platform to celebrate
the bicycle through music, art and, of course, film.

London, Tokyo, New York — and Sydney. Last year, more than 225,000

films, but also, includes rock shows, street parties, art shows,
dinners, bike rides and more!
The BFF over the past ten years is proud to be a platform for exposure
for many independent filmmakers and artists, and to show a range of
emerging filmmakers to established artists, including Albert Maysles,
Spike Jonze, Mike Mills, The Neistat Brothers, Michel Gondry, and Tom
