Heya bike folks. I know you are jonesing for your bike that was put away months ago or is perhaps suffering with you through the winter on your stationary trainer. Since Hartford loves you and we know that S.A.D. for cyclists is particularly harsh, there is a cycling movie at the Wadsworth on Tuesday, February 4th.
Here's the blurb. Hope to see a bunch of folks out there. Discount for Bike Walk Connecticut members.
Don't miss the inspiring film "Rising from Ashes" on Tuesday, Feb. 4th at 7 p.m. at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art. “Rising fromAshes” is a feature length documentary about two worlds colliding when cycling legend Jock Boyer moves to Rwanda, Africa to help a group of struggling genocide survivors pursue their dream of a national team. As they set out against impossible odds both Jock and the team find new purpose as they rise from the ashes of their past.
Informal happy hour meetup at the nearby Arch Street Tavern at 5PM, a short walk from the museum. In addition to popcorn, candy, and soda the theater has beer and wine available at their concession if you can't make it in time for happy hour.
Previous cycling films at have SOLD OUT so your best bet is to secure a ticket online ahead of time. For tickets, go to http://www.thewadsworth.org/events/films/. Discounted $10 admission for Bike Walk Connecticut and museum members, otherwise $12.
