The Joy Machine — Filmmaker, bike enthusiast and all round awesome do-er Benny Zenga takes his tall bike on a sojourn around Shoreditch.

Benny Zenga is a filmmaker, skater, biker, craftsman and all-round awesome guy who travels the world finding the things he’s curious about and spending time to document and collaborate with people building things from the grassroots up and living out their dreams.

He recently visited London to promote his short film Road Sage (about daredevil road cyclist Lucas Brunelle) at the London Bicycle Film Festival and ended up helping build Nike’s Project BA skatepark with artist Benedict Radcliffe – who crafts amazing structures like a full-size 3D wireframe Subaru Impreza as well as monster bikes, giant shoes and a stunning wood skate bowl on Quaker Street, off Brick Lane, London.

We were lucky enough to spend some time with Benny riding his tall bike around Shoreditch and made this video of what went down.

You can see more of Benny’s work on his website.
