With My Own Two Wheels: June 25

With My Own Two Wheels is a feature-length documentary about the bicycle as a vehicle for change around the world. The film is playing in Bend as part of a cross-country screening tour.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 25th at the Tower Theatre in Bend. Doors open at 7pm, show starts at 8pm. Tickets are on sale now at the Tower Box Office, Sunnyside Sports and Let It Ride Electric Bikes for $11.50.

The film’s producer and co-director, Jacob Seigel-Beottner, will be attending the show and there are several ways for viewers to connect with him, see the film and raise awareness of several local and global bike-related charities.

Join Seigel-Beottner on June 25th for an informal cruiser bike crawl from the Drake Park footbridge at 6:30pm. The ride will finish at the Tower Theater when the doors open at 7:00pm for the all-ages show.  Valet bike parking will be available in front of the theater along with ice cream from Ben and Jerry’s.

Two Wheels weaves together the stories of five individuals from across the globe into a single narrative about the bicycle as a vehicle for change. The documentary was shot on location in Zambia, Ghana, India, Guatemala and California and was produced in collaboration with bicycle-driven development organizations including World Bike Relief and Bikes Not Bombs.

The Bend screening is presented by Gary Fowles, broker for Hasson Realty, Let It Ride Electric Bikes, Ben & Jerry’s of Bend and Boneyard Beer.

The evening is a fundraiser for World Bicycle Relief and the Bend Endurance Academy.
