For the Bicycle Film Festival, pioneering documentarian Albert Maysles will share his personal romance with cycling. Fitting, of course, for the festival, but a departure nonetheless from Maysles headier work, Joyride takes from from a 1955 trip to a Moscow bicycle factory and a personal voyage from Boston to Quebec. In small pieces, Joyride collects anecdotes indicative of Maysles love of the bicycle, brought to life with the aid of co-curator and BFF founder Brendt Barbur.

In advance of the exhibition, Nowness visited with Maysles and photographed him amid his personal collections.
