Transportation Alternatives in New York City held its 7th annual Commuter Challenge yesterday. Streetfilms had cameras on each of the car driver, cyclist and public transit user and Elizabeth Press stayed up all night to create the video of the challenge in less than 24 hours!

This reminds me of a short I saw at the Bicycle Film Fest a few years ago called Yogurt vs. Gasoline.

I had missed that Neistat production -- pretty good!

In California the motorcyclist would have filtered through to the front of the line at every red light.

bikes rule... in the beginning she was holding a gray helmet, in the end there is a blue helmet on the bars, and during the middle she rode with no helmet?

Can we see specs on the bike? Close up would be nice too. How about stats from her computer? Tire pressure? Heck, what kind of tires? Personally, here in the west I like Panaracers but I imagine on the East Avocets are still popular.
