Join Streets Alive and Oregon Ebikes for a screening of MOTHERLOAD (trailer), a documentary about cargo bikes that is sweeping the nation. We’ll have a brief welcome and talk about this year’s Streets Alive event and encourage people to volunteer or donate.
Oregon Ebikes will be there showcasing a few of their own electric cargo bikes that enable families to get around this hilly town.
We can’t help but notice so many new cargo bikes in our town, so bike on down to show them off! You can park around the rear entrance to the outdoor amphitheater. There is a chance we will be inside based on the lighting and visibility.
It’s a movie about cargo biking, so of course the kiddos are welcome!
This is such short notice, so please bring your own snackies.
Cash bar for wine and beer.
ABOUT THE FILM
“Searching for freedom and connection in a gas-powered, digital and divided world.
MOTHERLOAD is a crowdsourced documentary about a new mother’s quest to understand the increasing isolation and disconnection of the digital age, its planetary impact, and how cargo bikes could be an antidote.
Filmmaker Liz Canning cycled everywhere until she had twins in 2008. Hauling babies via car was not only unsustainable but took the freedom and adventure out of life, and Liz felt trapped. She Googled “family bike” and uncovered a global movement of people replacing cars with cargo bikes: long-frame bicycles designed for carrying passengers and heavy loads. Liz set out to learn more, and MOTHERLOAD was born.”
