MSU Bikes is excited to be teaming up with the Tri-County Bike Association and other supporters to have our first ever bike movie night on May 29th, 2015, the last Friday of National Bike Month. The movies will be showed twice with the start of the first showing at 6 pm and the 2nd at 8 pm at the Midtown Brewing Company, one of Lansing’s finest brew pubs. The movies will run twice so that if you’re late or helping out with the valet bike parking you won’t miss any of them! No food or drink will be provided by the sponsors but MBC’s full menu will be available to order from.
The movies will be provided by the good folks of the Kalamazoo Bicycle Film Festival, an annual event that has been showing great bike movies since 2010. It will be a show of 22 short movies spanning the entire spectrum of bicycling that you won’t want to miss! The line-up of movies is listed on their website if you’re curious.
A $5 donation is suggested in lieu of an admission fee. Donations will be shared between some of our local community bike programs to be announced at the event. Supporters providing some assistance to make the event possible so far include: TCBA, Go Green Trikes, the League of Michigan Bicyclists, the Mid-Michigan Environmental Action Council & the Curmudgeonly Cyclist. Mid-MEAC will be providing their Valet Bike Parking equipment for the event and volunteers from our community bike programs will be helping run the VBP service.
