If you’re in the Austin, TX, area, roll on over to the Bicycle Film Festival.Ã‚Â Programs start at 7 and 9 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday (Sept. 19 and 20) at 501 Studios. Cost is $10 for individual programs or $25 for a weekend pass. Ã‚Â Here’s the scoop from Austin 360.com:
The Bicycle Film Festival started eight years ago, shortly after its founder, Brendt Barbur, was hit by a New York City bus while riding his bike. Barbur didn’t have the resources or will to pursue a legal fight, nor did he believe it would result in any meaningful change. Instead, he decided to create something that would raise awareness for cyclists in a positive and engaging way. The Bicycle Film Festival has grown into a 17-city worldwide tour, visiting Tokyo, Zurich, Toronto, San Francisco, and Portland, Ore., among others, and selling out nearly everywhere it goes.
