Think your bike commute is hectic? You ain’t seen nothing yet. Using a little post production flair, Black Sheep Films upped the ante on this intersection in Argentina, dramatizing the interaction between cars, trucks, motorcycles, bikes and pedestrians.

Though “Rush Hour” is intended as an exaggeration, the result is not all that far from the reality in some cities. Ultimately, it’s a reminder to be safe, be aware and keep an eye out for each other, no matter what your mode of transit.


About the author: Don Palermini

Chicago-born Don Palermini became a cycling-based life-form in the sixth grade after completing a family road bike tour of his home state. Three years later he bought his first mountain bike to help mitigate the city's pothole-strewn streets, and began exploring the region's unpaved roads and trails. Those rides sparked a much larger journey which includes all manner of bike racing, commuting, on- and off-road bike advocacy, and a 20-plus-year marketing career in the cycling industry that landed him at his current gig with Santa Cruz bicycles. Now residing in the San Francisco Bay Area, his four favorite words in the English language are "breakfast served all day," together in that order.
