Earth Day: Festival, Celebration, March & Ride

Apr 18, 2017

Perhaps this year, Earth Day is more paramount than ever. And there’s no shortage of activities…

Friday, April 21: Bike-In Movie

Free screening of the movie “Bikes vs Cars”. Ride your bike to the event for that Drive-In Theater feeling. Bring your own picnic.

Bikes vs Cars is a documentary about the bike and what an amazing tool for change it can be. It highlights a conflict in city planning between bikes, cars and a growing reliance on fossil fuels.

The movie will start around sundown, 7:15-ish.

Dan Koeppel will host a Q & A after the film. Dan is an American author and columnist. He has written columns for the New York Times Magazine and Popular Science, as well as having written extensively in a variety of mountain biking periodicals.

Location: Day One, 175 N. Euclid Ave., Pasadena 91101.
