Just watched "Enemy of the State" on DVD. Got me thinking -
Why is it that bike riding is so badly done in movies?
List of cliches:
- the protagonist picks up a bike in a hurry to flee etc, then TWISTS the bars from side to side in an obvious effort to lose his balance as quickly as possibly - and looks like he has not mastered the bike handling skills of an average 6 year old...
- A pedestrian chasing a bike will ALWAYS keep up with the bike, even on downhill
- best way across a busy intersection is to STEER as MUCH AS POSSIBLE from left to right and avoid picking a line...
