For Rochester Street Films this year we asked local filmmakers and ordinary citizens to share their perspective on what it’s like to get around Rochester without a car. No rules; No restrictions; No filter.

Rochester NY in February. It’s 19ºF and the ground is slick with snow and ice. But Mona Seghatoleslami, host of WXXI Classical 91.5 FM will brave the cold attempting to ride her bike from her home in Brighton to her job in downtown Rochester (about 4 miles). Afterwards, Mona heads to Tryon Bike shop to find out what type of gear she’ll need for serious winter cycling…

We’d like to ask for your help getting these films in front of as many people as we can. If you would like to host a mini screening of Rochester Street Films in your neighborhood, please contact us.

  1. The most important change I made to my bike for keeping my feet warm was getting a noseless saddle. The noses on bike saddles pinch nerves and restrict blood flow to your feet. Biking otherwise keeps your feet far warmer than walking; now that I ride without a nose on my saddle my winter biking footwear can lag behind my walking footwear for the seasons (I can comfortably wear sandals while sneakers are necessary for walking, and then sneakers when boots are necessary for walking).
