THURSDAY FEBRUARY 6th

at the VICTORIA EVENT CENTRE

1415 Broad Street

doors at 8pm

$5 entry

We are psyched to continue the recent flurry of grassroots cycling events with a film screening and fundraiser.

 

After three years in production, the long awaited, and surely contentious, Murder of Couriers – A Bike Messenger Documentary has been released by its Vancouver filmmakers. We are pleased to have the first crack at screening this bit of bike culture on January 31st.

 

Need another reason to come out and socialize around a locally-produced film about bike life?

Chalk it up to charity, and come out in support of our latest cause celebre: Dave Kennedy and Emily Donner’s difficult immigration situation.

Tickets are $5, available at the door and in advance at

All proceeds are being donated to longtime bike courier David Kennedy & his girlfriend Emily Donner for immigration legal aid. 

More details on their situation, HERE.

 

There may even be a casual beer, beaches and bikes group ride before the film. We’ll keep you posted via FB, twitter and the SL blog on this.

 

The best part? We will have Phillips beer on tap all night. 

Get loose!

 

Feel free to stop in at Broad Street Cycles to pick up a ticket, and chat with the guys about the upcoming screening.
