Bicycle Culture

Grab Your Blankets and Radios and Bike to the Movies in Tempe

Go catch a free bike-themed feature presentation this week at Mitchell Park during the Cycle-In Cinema screenings. Breaking Away, the 1979 classic about putting the sneaker to the pedal and getting super aero, is up for review tonight with Beijing Bicycle playing Thursday night.

Earlier this week, the Cycle-In Cinema featured Pee-Wee's Big Adventure and The Triplets of Belleville, with a reported attendance over 200 cyclists. All you need is a radio with an FM dial to tune into the movie and whatever you'd like to sit on or munch on during the film. All showings begin at 8 p.m. and it's rumored that there will be more events to cycle into later this month.
