West Town Bikes and Filmed by Bike, present a collection of short films focusing on the pure joy of cycling and the inspiration it creates. Profit from ticket sales and donations go towards supporting West Town Bikes youth and community programs. The Film Fest takes place at the Vittum Theater (1012 N Noble St) on Friday September 22nd. Thanks to Erica for creating and directing the fundraiser and Filmed by Bike for giving this art a voice.
The over-arching goals of West Town Bikes are to promote bicycling in the city of Chicago, to educate youth with a focus on under-served populations, and to foster and serve Chicago's growing bicycling community. While maintaining headquarters and a workspace in Chicago's Humboldt Park neighborhood, WTB is a city-wide service provider for youth programs in the city of Chicago.
This video captures the story of a summer project at West Town Bikes, where a group of interns learned about urban planning in order to design a bike friendly neighborhood that is more accessible to young people. Free Spirit Media put a lot of work into the video. Their skills and guidence in production, recording and editing made The Circuit look great. Free Spirit Media provides education, access, and opportunity in media production to over 500 underserved urban youth every year and we greatly appreciate their partnership.
Afterglow was our Cyclocross Programs last race of the season and it's right here in Humboldt Park. Put on by our good friends at Chicago Cuttin Crew. An ultra laid back race that is great for first timers. If you are interested in cyclocross racing and have any questions contact Mikey at 312-656-1953 or firstname.lastname@example.org. This race was good for all skill levels, and for many people, it's the only race they do all year.
