Join Triangle Bikeworks as they host the Triangle’s first showing of the international Bicycle Film Festival on Saturday, October 26, 2013.
The event will take place at the new full frame theater, located in the heart of the newly refurbished Power Plant at downtown Durham’s American Tobacco Historic District. Film subjects range from bike polo (including the terrifying life of a polo ball), to the Kenyan National Cycling team, to biker boys in love, and many more!
Proceeds of the festival will support programs designed to get youth active and outdoors.
About Triangle Bikeworks
Established in 2010 under the name Spoke ‘n Revolutions, Triangle Bike Works Inc. (TBW) is a nonprofit with programs centered on youth leadership and getting youth and underserved communities outdoors. TBW utilizes cycling as a gateway to youth development/leadership training for underserved youth in the Triangle. For the past three years we’ve reached over 300 youth, our summer bike tours have covered over 5000 miles, and we’re transforming the lives of youth cyclists in unimaginable ways. This fall we’ve added Cyclocross as a program for middle school age children as we continually expand to reach more youth.
The students in our programs all have promising futures after high school. However, their families do not have the necessary resources to afford the opportunities we provide. For many of these teens, a cycling adventure is what gives them that extra edge on their college entrance applications as well as building confidence and self-awareness.
