The Though Kitchen - Dedicated to Stirring the Pot

Filmed by Bike

filmedbybike_poster.jpgBasically, bikes rule. Sure, running needs only shoes, and the tech weenie thing can get way out of hand, but at it its simplest, there’s something about a bike and a spring day that goes right to the heart of the good life. There are lots of crappy things that can make your bike reality a little hellish, but they’re worth the risk. Honoring the good, the bad and the brutal of it all, Filmed by Bike (April 13-15) is a film festival dedicated to the spirit of bicycle culture. Comprised of 90 minutes of films, none longer than eight minutes”brevity being the soul of wit and all”this event deserves a place on your April calendar. Opening night promises plenty of, ahem, interactivity, but the following evenings should be tamer. Keep the rubber side down.

    Filmed by Bike rules. But the thing that I really get a kick out of is the parking situation:

    Me: “Lets circle the block, something has to open up.”
    Natalie: “Come on, there’s an open spot.”
    Me: “But we are like six blocks away!”

    Like Christmas at the Mall of America, there is no bike parking for blocks. Every pole, tree, fence, and stray cat has a bike (or three) locked to it. Super cool.

    ARE YOU READY TO ROCK? Filmed by Bike is going to be great this year. We sold out last year (and have every year), so this year we added an additional two days of screenings. Friday night will sell out, so get there early.

    Film submissions have come from around the world, but only a select few (19, to be exact) made the final cut.

    Come see what the ruckus is all about.

    See you this weekend,

    A nice slice of Portland’s own Biketopia and promotion of zero pollution vehicles.
    Maybe NAU will be a sponsor next year?
