BCA’s Winter Bike Fest 2011 concludes this Thursday at the Bear Toothfor a bike film festival. We’re showing two films, Cycling Copenhagen and Bicycle Dreams. This is Anchorage’s first screening of Bicycle Dreams, an excellent film with a long list of awards. It offers an inside glimpse into the Race Across America, an incredible endurance race of 3000 miles in 7 days (for teams) or 12 days (for solo riders). Tickets are $7, and please keep in mind ticket sales do not benefit BCA, so we will also be taking donations at the event to support our work to make Anchorage more bicycle-friendly.
