Proceeds from the festival benefit the Davis Bicycles! bike-to-school program. Davis Bicycles! is a citizen group dedicated to promoting bicycling in Davis and addressing issues of advocacy, safety, transportation, and education.
Films show the humor, the passion, and the inspiration people find in bicycling. The films take us from Amsterdam to Burundi and explore the many ways people make bikes a part of their lives.
Two of the films were made by local filmmakers who graduated from Davis High School.
"Pixie Dust: The Future of Mini Downhill Racing" features Bo MacArthur, Alex Wick, Taylor Harrison, and Zach Wick. "Whymcycles: A Boy and his Bike" was made by Nicolette Daskalakis and features local bike creator, Peter Wagner.
Another film features local bicycling organizations, including Davis Bicycles! and the Davis Bike Collective, a local do-it-yourself bike repair space.
