Film by ’70s porn stars that raised driver awareness of cyclists

Me ol’ bike blogging buddy Mikael has really been putting in the yards this weekend, trawling the archives for dirt on General Motors, but remarkably uncovering a GM produced video, teaching drivers to look out for cyclists. That’s not quite so remarkable as the cast: Ron Jeremy (2.00) Marilyn Chambers (3.26) John Holmes (6.33). I’ll admit, I couldn’t watch it right the way to the end, to let you know if in fact the entire adult film industry had a hand its making. The pacing would certainly suggest the involvement of porn producers. (Anyhow, it’s the weekend. Relax.)

About Steven

I'm on a mission to put cycling on the agendas of architects, urban designers and fellow academics, who see the potential for bicycles to change cities and buildings. My PhD is in architectural history and my interdisciplinary research spans art theory, philosophy and cultural studies. I teach architectural history and theory and design studio at The University of Tasmania, Australia, and formerly worked as an architect designing large public housing projects in Singapore. My favourite bikes are a titanium racing bike I use for racing, a Velorbis retro commuter for riding to cafes and work, a single speed ultra light Brompton that I take with me when I travel on planes, a 29er hard tail mountain bike that I get lost on in remote places, an old track bike that scares me, a 1984 Colnago Super with all original campagnolo components that is plugged into a virtual realm that I train in, and a Dutch-made Bakfiets, that could easily replace half of the bikes I just mentioned.
