Spring 2016 Workshop Series
All About Cycling
We are kicking off 2016 with an all new series of exciting bicycling workshops. All sessions will be held in the Community Room of the Mansfield Community Center and begin promptly at 6:30 pm.
Workshop #1, April 20, 2016 – (410080-A) – $5
Bicycles at the Movies — Part 1
In this first of our Spring movie session “Bicycle Dreams” will be shown and comes with FREE POPCORN!!!
Bicycle Dreams is one of the most celebrated cycling films of all time. Winner of 17 Film Festivals. Bicycle Dreams is the powerful true story of the Race Across America, a 3000-mile bicycle race that challenges riders to cross the country in just ten days. They must overcome searing desert heat, agonizing mountain climbs, and endless stretches of open road, all while battling extreme exhaustion and sleep deprivation. But what begins as the adventure of a lifetime is transformed in an instant when tragedy strikes the race. These voyagers discover what is truly at stake as they pedal on, praying for the deliverance only the finish line can bring. By journey’s end, some are saved, others are lost, but all learn that the fuel that takes a soul toward its own true destiny is desire.
Workshop #2, April 27, 2016 – (410080-B) – $10
The ABC’s of Bike Touring/Multi-day Trail Touring
Presenter: Dave Waldburger, Certified League of American Bicyclists Instructor, assisted by local LCI’s and other experienced cyclists. This workshop will take you through how to get started, where to go, how to prepare and what to expect when touring on your bike. Additionally, a 30-minute video from a popular/annual bicycle tour and time for questions/discussion will follow the presentation.
Workshop #3, May 4, 2016 – (410080-C) – $5
Bicycles at the Movies — Part 2
For our second movie in this series we are screening Bikes vs. Cars, which premiered at SXSW and was a 2015 NY Times Critics’ Pick! It is a hot movie and Bike Mansfield will provide the FREE POPCORN!!
Bikes vs Cars depicts a global crisis that we all deep down know we need to talk about: climate, earth’s resources, cities where the entire surface is consumed by the car. An ever-growing, dirty, noisy traffic chaos. The bike is a great tool for change, but the powerful interests who gain from the private car invest billions each year on lobbying and advertising to protect their business. In the film we meet activists and thinkers who are fighting for better cities, who refuse to stop riding despite the increasing number killed in traffic.
