Biking Parody 2: Pagan Rites - The Great Bike Toss

Biking Parody  2: Pagan Rites - The Great Bike Toss

Over the years, bike mechanics from throughout the United States and Canada have met in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont to promote camaraderie and vent collective frustrations. Their discontent stems from having to repair low quality, mass production bicycles, many of which can never be made suitable for riding. In symbolic defiance of capitalism gone awry, the mechanics make farcical modifications to the worst department store bicycles, after which they ride their contraptions to a throwing line, where they toss the bikes as far as they can, hoping to destroy the bikes in the process. Any remains from this ritual are brought to the "great bicycle heap," where they are piled on top of the previous years sacrificial bikes. In an obvious spoof of this comical event, producer Harvey Edwards interviews several pseudo authorities, who apply terms such as "iconoclastic, institutionalized, and medieval" to this "feast of fools." Even with expert filming and "informed" analysis the event remains an enigma for participants and viewers alike. Nevertheless, all go home at the end of day with rejuvenated spirits and smiles upon their faces. 95/12DE IJSCA 20 min.
