The Bicyclist is my number one favourite internet TV show. It is set in wet and windy Portland which is the capital of hipster bike culture in the USA. A lot of it is filmed in a bike shop called the recyclery
You can watch all the episodes for free here
My favourite character is Steve Jones, she is a super cool bike mechanic in her mid-twenties, independent, smart and funny (when no one’s looking.) Steve is played by Elle Poindexter
That's Steve in the armchair...
I made friends with Steve via her Myspace page and she has promised to come and ride in the next Sydney Body Art Ride!
