Bicycle Flick Spins Tale of Hope

When: Tue., May 3 2011

For most of us, riding a bicycle is a choice, a form of exercise, or an eco-conscious statement. But for many Third World residents, it's serious transportation. Whether we're talking about a health-care worker in Zambia or a farmer in Guatemala, access to a bicycle can change lives. That's one of the take-aways from With My Own Two Wheels, a documentary making its Cleveland debut tonight at 7 p.m. at the Cedar Lee Theatre. Berkeley filmmaker and intrepid cyclist Jacob Seigel-Boettner will be on hand to introduce the flick and lead a post-film discussion. Also look for raffles and auctions of bike-related merch and assorted goodies. The happening is a benefit for World Bicycle Relief, which does pretty much what its name implies. Tickets at the door cost $10 for adults, $8 for students and seniors. Call 440-796-1605 for more info. The Cedar Lee is at 2163 Lee Rd. in Cleveland Heights.
