Film Festival and Clean Bikes!

16 Apr

There’s so much cool bike-related stuff going on in April and May it makes me giddy.

If you’ve checked out the schedule for Bike Week, you know this already, but just in case, one of the events is the Bicycle Film Festival to be held at the Byrd Theater.  On Sunday April 22 starting at 5 p.m. and on Friday April 27 at 11:59 p.m. you can see a great range of films for just $5 (free with VCU student ID).  If you check the list of other cities on the festival’s tour, it might even make you feel a bit smug about living in Richmond.  We’re in good company.

Another event I just learned about via fellow Richmond bike blogger RVABikeCommuter is the Clean Bike Carnival coming up on May 5.  With help from Ellwood Thompson’s, Richmond Cycling Corps is offering cleaning and tune-ups as well as food, beer, games, and music to enjoy while you wait.  It’s also a nice opportunity to check out the Corps’ digs in Scott’s Addition if you haven’t done so yet.  Admission is FREE, but you do need to get a ticket prior to the event.

Whether you go to one of these or other events planned for Bike Week or National Bike Month, or just get on your bike more often, try to get out and show your support for cycling in Richmond.
