Veer, the movie Thursday, June 25 @ Columbia City Cinema

I'm excited about this! The evening of Thursday, June 25 Cascade Bicycle Club is hosting two viewings of Veer, the movie. Showings are at 6:30 and 9:00 PM. In between showings (at 8:30) is a talk with the film maker (Greg Fredette), David Hiller (Advocacy Director at Cascade Bicycle Club) and others.

The viewing is a fundraiser for Cascade's Major Taylor Project.

Here's the trailer for the movie:

More details on the Calendar at Cascade Bicycle Club's website.

There is a bike check next door to the cinema for $3. Ride your bike or take the bus (Metro's #7 goes there from downtown).

Thanks for the very thoughtful comment on my most recent post. I hope you don't think that I was advocating confrontations and violence; I was just trying to point out that stupid people acting stupidly and agressively towards others begets more of the same behavior.

As for your post on the film, looks sweet and you are lucky to have the opportunity for the screening. Missoula has quite a large cycling community and culture, but we are kind of far from anywhere and so dont atract these kinds of events.

Know any way that a person in Montana might get a copy of the film for a screening other than having to wait for it to be on dvd?

No worries. I understand where you're coming from. Yeah, people do stupid aggressive things and they shouldn't. It's just that when we're the target it gets very easy to respond in kind or escalate the issue. If we go in with a mindset that we can't do that, and respond civilly and within the law, it gives us greater leverage.

As for getting a copy of the film, I'd suggest contacting using their contact form to inquire about doing so. You may need to line up some sponsor (bike club or shop, maybe) for a screening. They'll be able to tell you for sure though.
