Bicycle Film Festival - State College
Available to stream 12/10 6pm (EST)
Bicycle Film Festival - State College is a celebration of bicycle films and advocacy. Bringing advocacy and the arts together, we believe is essential to the momentum of our mission in using the bicycle as a tool for lasting social change. This virtual event will include a speakers panel, hosted and directed by Nittany Mountain Bike Association, as well as a compilation of films from the Bicycle Film Festival.
Nittany Mountain Bike Association Speakers' Panel:
- Kids/Beginners on Bicycles - Advocacy leaders have embraced the opportunity to pass down their passion of riding to the next generation and others. This panel discussion will focus on the projects and people that strive to teach and create a safe, and fun, environment for kids and beginners to ride!
- Diversity and Inclusion - Many individuals and organizations in our community have fostered the notion that everybody should have equal access to organizational and informal activities on bicycles. In this panel discussion, leadership and cycling enthusiasts will discuss strategies and personal stories that have propelled diversity and inclusion for cyclists in our community!
