COTA Movie Night: Bikes vs Cars (Bend; Monthly)
April 21, 2016 at 9:00 pm
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

Where: Old St Francis School Theater, 700 NW Bond St, Bend
Details: Central Oregon Trail Alliance, The Environmental Center, and Central Oregon Community College invite you to celebrate Earth Day by taking a closer look at the different ways that bicycles and cars affect the livability of Central Oregon.
We know that the world needs radical changes to save the climate and the environment, but the car industry is selling more cars than ever. Today there are one billion cars in the world. By 2020, that number will double.
Bikes vs Cars follows the individuals around the world that are fighting to create change. From bike activists in Sao Paulo and Los Angeles, fighting for safe bike lanes, to the City of Copenhagen, where forty percent commute by bike daily, Bikes vs Cars will look at both the struggle for cyclists in a society dominated by cars, and the revolutionary changes that could take place if more cities moved away from car-centric models.
Bikes vs Cars is part of SUSTAIN, a month-long series of lectures, workshops, tours, and films to encourage and empower the Central Oregon community to embed sustainability into daily life. This event series was made possible by The Environmental Center and Central Oregon Community College. Click here for the full schedule.
Run time: 87 minutes.
