In celebration of Bike Month 2022, the Boston Cyclists Union is hosting a bike-in movie and community celebration!
Join us at Christian Herter Park‘s newly renovated amphitheater on the banks of the Charles River in Allston for a screening of Grecia White’s new Boston-based documentary, Women Who Bike at Night, as well as Gabriel Méndez Castaño short film, Mensajeros de Boston (Bike Messengers of Boston)*. Both films will be followed by a Q&A session with the creators.
The film screenings will be preceded by an outdoor celebration featuring A Trike Called Funk (Boston’s own pop-up party tricycle, spinning songs to create a dance party for YOU!), pop-up bicycle repair provided by REI, free El Pelón Taquería burritos for the first 100 guests, and Frosty’s Ice Cream soft serve available for purchase. The event will also include a special “unveiling” of Herter Park’s new bike racks.
BYO water bottle – the Boston Water and Sewer Commission’s water truck will be serving up fresh Boston tap water.
This is a free event. Bike convoys will be converging at Herter Park from Jamaica Plain, Copley Square, and Cambridge (part of what makes it a “bike-in” movie!):
*Please note that our second film, Mensajeros de Boston, contains some colorful language that may not be appropriate for children. That screening will be begin at 9:00 PM after a brief intermission, providing folks an opportunity to depart if desired.
Our Bike-In Movie is just one part of our Bike Month 2022 programming and advocacy opportunities.
