Winter bike culture in CT - Bring it!

Hartford and East Hartford IceBike to Work
Next week.  Wednesday, January 16th.  A group of hardy winter bike commuters will be meeting up for breakfast at 7AM (or thereabouts).  Nothing formal, just tasty breakfast (and coffee) and hearty banter.

In East Hartford we'll be meeting at Maddies right across Main Street from Pratt & Whitney.  In Hartford they'll be meeting up at JoJo's on Pratt Street.

This month we'll be talking about riding in slush, ice, and snow.  What tires do you run?  Have you taken a digger yet this season?

Reveal the Path - Movie Screening and Bike Walk CT Social

Hey folks - We're screening a bike film Tuesday, February 5th at the Wadsworth Aetna Theater.  The movie is Reveal the Path, a bicycle travel / adventure movie.

Would love if y'all could join us and help get the word out.  A portion of the ticket sales goes to Bike Walk CT, so in addition to this being some great CT bike culture - we're doing a little fundraising to support our advocacy and education efforts.  Was very pleased with the movie we screened last year (Bicycle Dreams).  We sold out!  Tickets can be purchased online for $11 and will be $15 at the door.

There is a Facebook event (   Invite your friends.

Similar to last year we're going to happy hour / socialize before the movie at Arch Street Tavern.  Happy Hour starts at 5PM.

And you can stop by Hartford Bicycle Studio, in the same building as Arch St Tavern, to see what Patrick has been up to. Bikes and art. Great stuff in a neat space.

Could somebody remove me from the list of people that get email notifications for comments? Thanks!

Did I fix it?

Why doesn't Bike Walk CT post events on its website anymore?

Brendan said...

It stopped having events?

The IceBike events are a bit informal. I think they've been mentioned here, and on Facebook. Kelly Kennedy may be including them in the newsletters.

The movie screening should get on the website. I handed off that info last week.

Anyone riding in the wintery mix?
