On Saturday, September 22nd, Burbank Bike produced its first-ever Bike-In Movie and Bike Workshop event. Members of the public were treated to an afternoon of bike safety, skills, and flat-fixing workshops. First on the agenda was a comprehensive bike safety film showing courtesy of the League of American Bicyclists, then an overview of Confident City Cycling, and finally an open questions session and flat fix demonstration. Everyone in need was given a free helmet, and flat-fix kits were passed out to all. The event was capped off with a fun and easy rolling community bike ride to McCambridge Park where a giant inflate-able movie screen awaited under a beautiful auburn sky.

Fresh sandwiches, snacks, and water were provided to the crowd before the movie Megamind was shown. The event saw kids, women, seniors, and teens on bikes riding together safely through the neighborhoods of Burbank before settling into comfy grassy digs on blankets and lawn chairs. Fun times were had by all those who came out. We would like to thank the City of Burbank, Cory Wilkerson, and Don Ward. The event was grant-funded and administered by LACBC, whom the City contracted to organize the event.

Many folks who attended were asking when the next one would be. We hope this event can serve as an inspiration and a model for other community bike events like it!
