Documentary: A Bridge to Nowhere
German film director, Alexander Gall, has made a documentary chronicling the embattled fight between local Burbank cyclists and a group of vocal horseback riders who have pressured the city of Burbank to reverse a previous unanimous vote keeping the bridge open to the public. Gal narrates, “We felt our European audiences who were accustomed to the bicycle being king of their environment and being able to take them everywhere will be fascinated to learn how the small city of Burbank in California came to restrict bike movement over a bridge vital to the nicest natural and open recreation areas in Los Angeles.” Spoiler alert, the new law banning bikes is unenforceable, according to the Burbank Police Dept. and Griffith Park Rangers, as told to Doug Weiskopf, who was documented in the movie walking his bicycle over the bridge in order to receive a ticket, which would allow an appeal of the law to be filed.
