WABA is holding a Bike Movie Night on April 5 at the Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse – join us for a screening of the powerful documentary “With My Own Two Wheels.” The film has played to great reviews, including a sold-out premiere at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. It portrays the role of the bicycle in communities across the world, from providing access to education to reaching patients in remote areas. There will be a Q&A with the producer/co-director, Jacob Seigel-Boettner, after the film. 6:30 PM – doors open with food and drink available from the Drafthouse 7:30 PM – film begins followed by a Q&A with producer and co-director Jacob Seigel-Boettner We’ll be providing extra bike parking at the theater and holding raffles for great bike prizes throughout the night, including a pair of Bolle Vigilante sunglasses, sets of Panaracer RiBMo urban commuting tires, and more.
