Filmed by Bike “Bike Love” Movie Night Hosted by Idaho Walk Bike Alliance
Tuesday, May 16, 2017 / 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. / The Flicks / 646 W. Fulton St. / Boise
From a quirky profile of a high-wheeled bicycle enthusiast to a jazzy one-minute animation of the 300-year history of the bicycle.
From a gritty tale of two young women killing it on BMX bikes to a gorgeous film of a weekend ride in a downhill Austrian bike park.
From a straightforward exploration of why Philly is so bike-friendly to a jaw-dropping dance performance on a bike through an abandoned German chocolate factory.
We hope these 13 films will inspire a culture in Idaho where cycling is a natural aspect of everyday life.

George’s Cycles & Fitness was established in 1971. As the store excelled so did the Boise Cycling Club. The “George’s” team grew and became competitive throughout the Northwest. At the end of 1981, two of the team’s riders, Mike Cooley and Tom Platt, decided to purchase the business. That one small store has now become three and a half large stores and the complexity of the business has exploded to encompass every possible facet of bicycle riding. George’s continues to be very passionate about anything cycling. It is committed to maintaining the most knowledgeable staff, carrying the highest quality products and providing the best possible service. It respects all levels of ability and strives to enhance every customer’s cycling experience. It serves its community by increasing cycling awareness and cycling participation.
