Join Globe and Mail staff writer Alex Bozikovic and special guests for this timely screening of the 2015 documentary Bikes vs. Cars, an urgent portrait of the bicycle as a tool for urban change. Travelling from São Paulo, Los Angeles and Toronto, where cyclists fight daily for their right to the road, to Copenhagen, where forty percent of the population commutes by bike, director Fredrik Gertten meets activists and thinkers who are working for revolutionary changes and more sustainable urban environments. Beautifully crafted and inspiring, Bikes vs Cars is a powerful look at how to move away from car-centric models and toward livable cities.

Stick around for a panel discussion with our Director of Advocacy and Government Relations Liz Sutherland and more. Half of the ticket proceeds will be donated to our cycling education programs.

In English, Portuguese, Spanish, with English subtitles.

Bike to the cinema!

Cycle Toronto will be offering Bike Valet outside the cinema (north-west corner of Bloor St. W. & Albany Ave.) - time TBD - to encourage attendees to bike to the screening. Ride to the cinema and park your bike securely with our friendly team!
