"A Virtuous Cycle: Bicycling in DC" examines how Washington, DC is incorporating bicycling into its transportation infrastructure. Much like cities across the world, DC is feeling the effects of years of dependence on cars: pollution, congestion, obesity. This documentary takes a look at why DC sees bicycles as part of the solution to some of these issues and what challenges it is facing with the increased popularity of biking.

I would like to thank everyone who agreed to be interviewed for this documentary, including:

Eric Gilliland, Executive Director of the Washington Area Bicyclist Association

Jim Sebastian, Manager of Bicycle and Pedestrian Programs for the DC Department of Transportation

Paul DeMaio, Bike Sharing Consultant, MetroBikes LLC

Diane Roche, a bicycle commuter

Lauren Smeeding, a car commuter
