Mark your calendar for ‘The World’s Best Bike Movies’

January 9, 2019

Filmed by Bike in Portland, Oregon’s famed bicycle-themed film festival is making a stop at the Egyptian Theatre on Friday, Jan. 18, according to a press release about the event.

The traveling festival features more than 15 films from all over the world. The Boise showing will be divided into two parts: Bike Love and Adventure Shorts. Presented by the Idaho Walk Bike Alliance, the festival raises funds for walk and bike advocacy across the state. The title sponsor of this year’s Filmed by Bike is Spokey Joe’s Bikes and Gear, a new bike shop in Boise.

Tickets are available through the Egyptian Theatre website.

Filmed by Bike started in 2003 as a small fundraiser for bike events and it has been supporting a burgeoning international community of bike-loving filmmakers ever since. Filmed by Bike features “the world’s best bike movies” with a film festival every May in Portland, Oregon.

Idaho Walk Bike Alliance, a Boise-based nonprofit, promotes active transportation as healthy, safe, and reliable for all Idahoans. As the only statewide advocacy group working to improve safety on roadways for all non-motorized users, it envisions an Idaho known for its active, vibrant, healthy and economically strong communities.
