Video: Saint Louis Bike Tours: South Grand

I go into these things with a story I want to tell. I have the whole thing laid out in my head, shot for shot. I show up with an exact aesthetic and theme in mind. I can honestly say, however, that it always turns out the complete opposite of what I think ahead of time.

This best describes the South Grand Bike Tour video. I went into it with thoughts of attractive, young St. Louisians dancing to vinyl only versions of songs at London Calling and various hip twenty-somethings living life in gentrified harmony. What I got was a dead night, simple as that. This is a video about what it's like when you have to make the best out of a slow night. Enjoy.
