This recent news report reminded us of the lovely film Beauty and the Bike. During last May’s bike month, the Coalition partnered with Columbia’s local indie theatre, the Nickelodeon, and offered a screening of Beauty and the Bike, along with Contested Streets.
We have a copy of both films in our ‘library,’ and are more than happy to loan them to anyone who may be interested. Both films explore the theme of reclaiming streets for people and not just cars. Specifically, Beauty and the Bike follows several young beauties and dares to explore why British girls stop cycling when they become teenagers. This simple question drives their campaign to improve infrastructure and transportation policy in their community.
Contact Rachael if you’re interested in either film. A screening makes for a fabulous bike month event, which is just a few months away for 2011!
