The Bicycle Film Festival




It might be true that hipsters and their beloved “fixies” (fixed gear bicycles) have lent biking some urban street cred as of late, ostensibly making the pastime cool again. But such a fad is really only a small part of a much larger picture. This fall, The Bicycle Film Festival (BFF), presented by 42Below, is bent on bringing that big picture to the masses with a touring slate of films exploring everything from the culture of bicycling to the various forms that it takes—e.g. BMX, fixed-gear, mountain, cylcocross and road.

Among the many scheduled films are documentaries such as I Love My Bicycle and Where Are You Go, the latter chronicling the filmmaker’s 7,000 mile journey via bike across Africa. Other BFF activities include a head-to-head roller sprint race to be held at Bayleaf Cafe (159 S. Main) and a closing-night party at the Jackalope Lounge (372 So. State St.) with DJ ChaseOne2.

And remember: free valet bike parking is available at all events, courtesy of the Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective.
