    • Synopsis
    • Two filmmakers' struggle to infiltrate an exclusive underground bike club. “B.I.K.E.” is an exploration of the Black Label Bicycle Club (BLBC) and the
      wider freak bike subculture that has grown up around it.  Started in
      Minneapolis in 1994 BLBC has inspired rival clubs and grown into an
      international subculture with hundreds of members worldwide.
      Comprised mainly of artists driven by anti-materialism and a belief that the
      impending apocalypse will render cars useless and bicycles in power, BLBC  
      battles mainstream culture and rival gangs for its vision of a better tomorrow.
      Shot on location in New York City, Minneapolis, London, Paris, and Amsterdam.
      Pulling threads from Critical Mass and the wider bike counterculture,  B.I.K.E.
      is a definitive look at the intersection of subculture, radical politics,
      group dynamics and personal identity.
