Why We Bike

 

Saturday, April 27

Irondequoit Public Library, rm 113

1 PM – 3 PM

Free screening | All ages welcome


Why do we bike? Whether to save money, reduce your carbon footprint, or live a longer and healthier life, using a bike can enrich your life and bring you joy. For any town, biking can be a vehicle to build community, fight climate change, support the local economy and attract a new generation of young people.

Join us for a film screening and panel discussion about the rewards for us personally, and as a society when more people ride bikes. The event will feature two short films followed by a live discussion with Reconnect Rochester and Walk Bike Irondequoit.
