SANTA CRUZ BICYCLE FILM FESTIVAL at the Guerilla Ride-In (10/21)

A special GDI event THIS Friday. We have the honor of co-hosting the Santa Cruz Bicycle Film Festival with People Power. The lack of easy and convenient public transportation this month is sending you a clear message: Get on your bike. Become part of bike culture and join us for this special event.

People Power and Santa Cruz Guerilla Bike-In Present


and the Santa Cruz Bicycle Film Festival

The Santa Cruz Bicycle Film Festival will show several bicycling films, including animated shorts, documentaries on bike messenger culture, and short films about the simple joy of riding a bike. The featured film, Still We Ride, is a newly-released documentary about Critical Mass, from its formation in San Francisco over 10 years ago to the mass arrests of cyclists in New York in August 2004. Currently the film is on a international tour to bring awareness to the New York Critical Mass cause.

PLUS thrilling and funny short films, an intermission, great company, and a rollicking bike ride after the movie.

Friday October 21st, 8:00pm
Railroad Tracks at Fair Ave, Santa Cruz

BRING lawn chairs, blankets, pillows, friends, wine, & food to share for intermission, and of course your bike! This is a benefit to support People Power and the legal battles of New York Critical Mass, so your donations are appreciated.

MIDNIGHT MYSTERY RIDE: After the movies, the Santa Cruz Midnight Mystery Ride will take you and your friends on a rollicking after-hours tour of the bike ways and back streets of our fair city. Leaving after the Guerilla Ride-in we’ll head down town to pick up more folks at the Poet and Patriot bar. Where are we going? It’s a mystery! Only the leader for that week knows. The ride is 3-5 miles long and always ends with an after-hours party in nature, so bring a snack to share and pack your trash. keep an eye out for special info from ride leaders at There is a ride every other week, after the Guerilla Bike-In, always leaving from the Poet and Patriot Bar around midnight.

SANTA CRUZ GUERILLA BIKE-IN is an outdoor movie theatre under the stars that springs up unexpectedly in the fields and industrial wastelands. Beyond showing great movies and bringing a broad community together, part of our mission is helping reclaim public space and transforming our urban environment into the joyful playground it should be.
