Fast Friday (2009)
43min · Documentary · 28 May 2009
Director David Rowe documents the emergence of the prolific track bike scene in Seattle Washington. Started by Cadence Clothing founder and fixed-gear rider Dustin Klein, the monthly cycling event known as "Fast Friday" has grown into a showcase of today's most talented riders. Fast Friday began as a few friends gathering in the basement of Dustin's studio, but quickly outgrew its roots developing into a well known event where over a hundred track bike enthusiasts gathered in July 2007 for the largest Fast Friday to date. Watch through the eyes of the various alcohol-fueled characters that build a positive community based around alley cat races, trick competitions, and various other events designed to test the skills of urban bicyclists. The positivity of the Seattle scene has inspired countless events to spring up in other cities around the world. Mirroring the early days of skateboarding, many wonder where the sport will go next.
