Bicycles and Pittsburgh go together like peanut butter and jelly. From the Dirty Dozen to Pedal Pittsburgh, the Keg Ride to the GAP Trail, Pittsburghers love to pedal. What better way to shake off the dust of winter and inspire your two-wheeled dreams to become real adventures than a great night of bicycle films from across the globe.
25% of all tickets sales go directly to Bike Pittsburgh, our local advocates. Along with great movies there will be free samples from the East End Brewing Company. It's BYOC (Bring You Own Cup....or water bottle) With only 300 tickets available, an online sellout is expected before the event.
Here are two of the movies to be shown:
Take A Seat Egypt is the third International Take A Seat project by Dominic Gill, who now takes his tandem bicycle to Egypt, the heart of the Arab uprising. He explores the country, its politics and its rich history inviting Egyptian people to take a seat and help him pedal through the heat of summer to experience the rawest of road trips, with no doors or windows protecting them from reality. Painful, beautiful and everything in between. Click here to view trailer
The Cyclo Diaries. Two Australian tour guides decide to pedal a brakeless gearless pedicab 1800 kilometers from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City to raise money for charity. If the route were flat it would be a big challenge. Unfortunately the route is hilly and they have to do some quick thinking to keep the pedicab on the move. If you think the hills of Pittsburgh are daunting, try pedaling a pedicab for 140km in a single day. (Bob: the three pictures attached are from this movie)
Showtime is 7pm, Thursday, March 28th, 2013. Early Bird pricing ends at noon on the 28th or when the show sells out. If available, tickets will be sold at the door for $20.
