Bicycle Film Festival & Ride of the Week

One of the many great parts of living here in the Boston/Cambridge is there is more talented people per square inch than most every where else in the world. With all the incredible universities and colleges that attract and hold on to all those people that not only attend but then run, maintain etc. these places. Then there is all business that is ancillary to all of that… ok I could go on but you already got the point.

So it is my hope that some of you with that great talent will enter into the
Bicycle Film Festival. From their site;
“The Bicycle Film Festival celebrates the bicycle. We are into all styles of bikes and biking. If you can name it-Tall Bike Jousting, Track Bikes, BMX, Alleycats, Critical Mass, Bike Polo, Cycling to Recumbents- we've probably either ridden or screened it. What better way to celebrate these lifestyles than through art, film, music and performance? We bring together all aspects of bicycling together to advocate its ability to transport us in many ways. Ultimately the Fest is about having a good time.
We have been fortunate enough to include works of established artists such as Jorgen Leth, Mike Mills, Jonas Mekas, Blonde Redhead,
Swoon and Michel Gondry among others as part of our programming. Many of the artists who have participated in the Bike Film Fest such as the Neistat Brothers and Lucas Brunelle are gaining more and more re-cognition for their work. Sign up for the email list or just come out and enjoy our 8th Annual Bicycle Film Festival.”

P.S. bikes rule

So get on it, you only have until March 7, 2009, good luck!
What better way, than on film, to say Bike Me!
PS: The Ride of Week is a 1970's Phillips 5 speed.
We will be @ our "shop" all weekend long w/10% off all bikes. Come on by and get your "new old" ride.
