    More than just a montage of vehicle-dodging, fast paced action, Line of Sight also gives the viewers an insight into the community of bicycle messengers who run and participate in these underground races. Director Benny Zenga turns the cameras back on Lucas, his compatriots, and on the incredible cities where they run wild on the streets. The end result? A world tour of the urban jungles of New York to the actual jungles of Guatemala, from the narrow maze of London streets to the Great Wall of China.

    Wow! Pretty crazy stuff.
    Though I admire their skill and fitness, I got to say that they left their brains behind.

    Not too nice when "some of the best urban riders in the world in their natural element" goes about glorifying... Oh, wait a second...

    Blatant disregard for the lives of others.

    Locally they are disliked and terrors too. If you drive on a Saturday or Sunday morning you will know.

    Especially those dressed up in tight spandex type.

    Singapore roads not meant for riding bicycles.

    Though I'd agree that there are bad hats, I totally disagree with you painting every cyclist in the same color.
    Neither does Sgp road belong to motorcars only.
    Perhaps those with the mentality that the roads belong to their cars also snuff in the pollution that their car put out.

    can cyclists please ride in a SINGLE line ESPECIALLY on narrow roads ??? seen plenty of riders ride along places like Mandai Road , Siglap Rds, Cluny Road, end of Changi Coastal Road before Changi VIllage, Upper Bukit Timah Rd ride 2-4 abreast in constant traffic like they are in the TOur de France peleton style ..... cars cant even pass safely ... this is just a mow-down waiting to happen

    A lot of bad hats, especially those tour de France type has a entitlement mentality that the road belongs to them.

    There are good cyclists still, most ah peks, Bangla workers, children and teens in bmx type bicycle are quite courteous and careful road users.

    Put on the spandex the oakleys and an expensive road bikes suddenly these are the terrors. When in groups they totally block the whole road, zip into risky first lanes and right turning lanes, go up high speed flyovers, choke the filter lanes, all very dangerous and they CANNOT take a gentle fast beep when drivers alert then for danger but grew defensive and start behaving like uneducated.

    If you belong to the cycling hobby group, pls advise your friends to ride safely and spare a thought for other road users.

    That's because the spandex is too tight and is restructing blood flow to their brain

    Good point, than TP should take away their driving licence or give demerit points even if they are caught on their bicycle

    The jungle also belongs to all animals but more respect is given to the carnivores for a reason.

    Cyclist to cycle two or more abreast one two lane roads are inconsiderate pests.
