Bikeside Speaks will join forces with Cynergy, Specialized, and the Disposable Film Festival to throw a triple-header bash in Santa Monica. Saturday, August 21st, at 6:30pm sharp Bikeside Speaks will kick off a night of bikes, films, and P.A.R.T.Y!
* 6:30pm - 8:30pm Bikeside Speaks!
* 8:30pm - 11pm "bike-in" screening by the Disposable Film Festival (RSVP on Facebook)
* afterward, party at the Hotel Erwin on Venice Beach...
Cynergy Cycles will host the Disposable Film Festival's bike-in screening in it's parking lot. Bring a bike and a blanket and watch quality films from "disposable media" like cell phone cameras or flip cams. Before that Bikeside Speaks will present cutting edge projects in bike activism - here's the first part of the lineup:
* "Cool Ass" Mike Bower's project 1000 Bikes - a non-profit project to put bikes in the hands of foster kids and their families.
* Gary Kavanagh of Gary Rides Bikes and Santa Monica Spoke will talk about redefining freedom of mobility beyond the motoring age. Did Gary just call the end of the motoring age? I think he did.
* Stephen Box, candidate for City Council District 4 in LA, will inspire and engage . . . and probably put the crowd in stitches as he did last Bikeside Speaks.
There will be an awesome Specialized bike raffle, all proceeds going to Bikeside. Check back here for updates on the full line-up of speakers!
Look for Bikeside Speaks to head east, way east, in September!)
