Babelgum celebrates bike culture with original doc series

Babelgum is launching an original web series, Freewheelers, made up of short documentaries on urban cycle culture. The style of the series will share the aesthetics of 'street-style fashion blogs like The Satorialist,' says Laurence Billiet, EP of the series and publisher of Babelgum's Metropolis channel. The episodes focus on the story of a unique bike and its owner. The first three episodes, which feature a photography student, a waiter and an artist and their special bikes, can be found at www.babelgum.com/freewheelers.
