Supersized Spurlock? There's only One Direction to go: The Bike!

Posted by Fredrik Gertten (Creator)

How do you think Morgan Spurlockthe director of the documentary Supersize Me, lost all that McDonald's weight? The bike, of course. And now he is here to tell you why he thinks you should hop on a bike and support the BIKES vs CARS project. We couldn't agree with him more.

We are so grateful for all the support that floats in from all of you. Soon 1200 backers in 40 countries. This is a truly global movement. We are happy to have Doc friends like Joe Berlinger, Brian Knappenberger, Tia Lessin and Carl Deal and The Yes Men that are endorsing the project.  艾未未 Ai Weiwei and a number of other inspiring and amazing people have been tweeting about BIKES vs CARS.

We are so proud that we have bicycle friends all over the world who want to help us spread the word so that we can become many more. A Kickstarter campaign is not only about money. It's about building an outreach for the film and connecting to our supporters to make the movement more powerful. 

Recently the Atlantic published an interview with director Fredrik Gertten, you can read it here.

And if you understand Swedish you can listen to an interview on Swedish Radio here.

It's very intense to do a Kickstarter campaign. We work day and night. But the love that floats back is so inspiring! Thank you for all for your support!

      But as a filmmaker Morgan Spurlock should know about that:…

      This is going to be great! I'm really excited about this documentary. I'm an urban planning student in the states. Bikes will win! The future is bright! Keep up the good cause and please get censored again! :)
