Time's Up Bike Space/Messenger Space
49 East Houston (btwn Mott and Mulberry)

What is showing?

"Warriors, the Bike Race." No not the cult classic film from the 70's, not the video game, this is a 30 minute documentary about NYC's most insane alley cat race. 800 riders came to a park in the Bronx with their gangs and had to get to Coney Island by sun up. They had to compete in physical challenges, answer trivia questions and not get obliterated by other gangs. Director's Jesse Epstein, Michael Green and Christopher Ryan, were on hand to cover the mayhem...Can you dig it.

Bike TV presents "CMWC05 Wrap Up" a 30 minute presentation from everyone's favorite public access program, dedicated to the bicycle...Bike TV. Last year the, "Messenger Olympics" came to their rightful home...New York City for the 13th Messenger World Championships. This program is a look at much of what when on when the worlds Messengers came to New York and Jersey for 4 days of events, last summer.

"Bike Kill 2005" Did you miss last Halloween's Bike Kill? Dirty Jersey Choppers, makers of amazing mutant bikes made a 5 minute video about all the chaos. Tallbike jousting, dirty mattress riding, footdown and much more. Bike Kill is an annual event hosted by the Black Label Bike Club.

another Bike Kill Video...by Nick Golebiewski this one's in super 8mm and narrated by Matt Levy.

Plus a few other surprises.

This is a free event, beer will most likely be served for donations and all donations gratefully accepted for time's up.

Bike TV will probably be selling CMWC05 videos for cheap...till they run out.
