Triangle Bike Works is bringing the internationally acclaimed Bicycle Film Festival to Durham, NC for one fabulous day in October!
Triangle Bike Works Inc. is a non-profit organization that utilizes cycling as a gateway to youth development and leadership training for under-served youth in the Triangle area (currently Chapel Hill/Carrboro). For the past three years under the Spoke’n Revolutions Youth Cycling program, 19 high school age boys and girls have completed three summer bike tours, each covering over 1000 miles, transforming the lives of our youth cyclists in unimaginable ways. This year we've added Cyclocross as a program for middle school age children as we continually expand to reach more youth.
We’ve also partnered with the National Park Service to create opportunities for under-served youth who lack access to the national park system. Thus far, the youth cyclists have cycled through 20 National Parks giving them a greater understanding of our shared American history. It is an exciting time for our fairly new non-profit but challenging as well. To further meet the needs for the programs and our future expansion to Durham we will partner with the Bicycle Film Festival (BFF) to hold its international film event in North Carolina for the first time as a major fundraiser for our organization.
The Bicycle Film Festival celebrates the bicycle. All styles of bikes and biking, from traditional road cycling to BMX, or the unconventional! If you can name it – Tall Bike Jousting, Track Bikes, BMX, Alleycats, Critical Mass, Kidical Mass! Bike Polo, Cycling to Recumbents – it’s played at BFF.
The festival brings together all aspects of bicycling together to advocate its ability to transport us in many ways. We invite you to come and enjoy the aspects of biking as sport, transportation, a way of life and entertainment. After the show join us for a kickass after party, have a great time and find out more about Triangle Bikeworks and how you can help the organization get more kids on bikes!
There will be only three showings, so get your tickets now.
