Green Night Out at the Movies: Bikes vs Cars

Feb 18, 2016 10:17AM ● By Neighbors Magazines

The Batavia Environmental Commission and Confident Aire are providing an evening of FREE entertainment: a green themed movie, free popcorn and drink (for those that bring a reusable cup and bowl), an expo featuring local eco groups, businesses and a lively discussion about the topic of the movie afterward.

Bikes vs Cars depicts a global crisis that most people know we need to talk about: the climate and the earth's resources.  The bike is a great tool for change. In the film, activists and thinkers who are fighting for better cities, refuse to stop riding despite difficult riding conditions in their cities.

Members of the Batavia Bicycle Commission will be the featured speakers after the movie.  “We are fortunate to have such a strong and active Bicycle Commission in our community” explained event organizer Carolyn Burnham.  “They will answer questions and talk about Bicycle Commission initiatives including the Bicycle Friendly City, Safe Routes to School and the Bicycle Friendly Business program.  They will also discuss what we need to do in the future to continue to make the Fox Valley a great and safe place to ride our bicycles.”

This free event will be hosted at the Batavia City Hall on Saturday, March 5 from 6pm with the movie starting at 7pm.
