Lots going on these days in the bike world. Too Bad New York City didn't get the olympic bid. I was so looking forward all those construction jobs and a huge pile of debt that we the tax payers would be expected to pay. Of course we'd get an olympic size diving board, that no one could ever use. The city that loves to draw attention to unknown sporting events, except if you are a bunch of messengers, then you have to go to Jersey City. Meanwhile the movie Still we ride will be screening again.
Benefit Screening of STILL WE RIDE!
Friday, July 8, 7 p.m.
Anthology Film Archives (2nd Ave and 2nd Street)
$8 to benefit TIME'S UP! and Freewheels
If you missed Still We Ride at the Bicycle Film Festival, come check it out on Friday. The movie has been updated since its HUGE premiere (two sold out shows) on May 12. Since then, it has also screened around world including in Leiscester, Copenhagen, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, and in Helsinki, Turku, and Pori in Finland. The next screening is at the World Car-Free Conference in Budapest.
This screening will benefit the legal defense of the NYC bike community
via two organizations, Freewheels, which helps arrestees and TIME'S UP!, which is being sued by the City. Many individuals (and TIME'S UP!) are still embattled in court situations that are costing a lot of money and lasting a log time!
The directors as well as representatives from the organizations involved in
legal battles will be on hand to field questions.
