Fixed on Fixed: A film about a Melbourne based fixed gear girl crew
Eric and I came across this neat little film last night and I found it super exciting. We don’t see many films focusing on women in cycling and even less when it comes to fixed gear and track bikes. Not only does Fixed on Fixed explores a subject that’s often left aside, it also does it very well. The photography and editing are excellent, bur more importantly, the commentary by the riders are smart and pertinent.
As a women riding bikes, mostly fixed gears, this film really resonated with me. It also made me smile as the girls from Fixed on Fixed remind me a lot of the girls from Girls on Fixed and the goal we are trying to achieve here in Montreal, building our little community of women cyclists.
Also, I’ll just say that I’m a bit jealous of the skills of the ladies in the film. I’m very far from achieving one of those fancy one-leg-over-the-bars skid, ha!
