Smut Peddler

When Queen’s Freddie Mercury penned the line "I want to ride my bicycle,” it's doubtful he intended it to be a double-entendre. But don't tell that to Reverend Phil Sano, the ordained minister of the Church of Bicycle Jesus, mainstay of the Portland bike scene, and the man who is bringing the Bike Porn 2: Bikexploitation festival to town.

For his sequel to last year's The Pornography of the Bicycle, the good reverend collected short indie films from friends and fellow filmmakers on the theme of bike porn. Spanning all genres and styles – including abstract, contemplative pieces, single-gear stunt clips, and straight-up lusty nakedness on film – the flicks should titillate active velophiliacs while piquing the curiosity of the uninitiated. Those choosing to replicate the underground antics depicted in the touring film exhibit would be well-advised to wear a helmet.
