Bike-In Movie: 'Motherload'

For some biking is a hobby. For others, it's a way of life.


It's a gas-powered world, but a few people still get around on pedals. In Motherload, a new mother explores how cargo bikes could be the wave of the future. Filmmaker Liz Canning used to bike everywhere until she had twins. Feeling trapped in a car, she opted for a "family bike," which allowed her to haul her two youngsters everywhere, just as she did before: on two wheels. Motherload received a standing ovation at the American Bicyclists National Summit, and has been on an international film tour since early May. The documentary was crowd-sourced and has been viewed all over the world, including stops in Norway and Australia. The Boise Bicycle Project and the Sierra Club will host a bike-in screening of the film at BBP headquarters. There are only 50 tickets available for the screening.

7 p.m. $10. Boise Bicycle Project, 1027 S. Lusk St., Boise,
