Man Bites Shorts

Bike Ride

The Short

A man decides to pay a surprise visit to his girlfriend. The problem? She lives 50 miles away—and the only wheels he’s got are on an old Schwinn bicycle. James Peterson narrated the story, jazz drummer Dave King improvised the soundtrack and Tom Schroeder drew animation to an analysis of both audio tracks. BIKE RIDE is the result of this free-associative collaboration.
