As part of the IBikeMCR annual festival, The Spokes hosted a film screening of “Beauty and The Bike” – a documentary about young women in the UK and Germany joining forces to overcome the barriers which prevent them from cycling.
The film was an engaging story of cultural exchange, the empowerment of young women, and some beautiful bikes! We had special guests at the screening including two of the young women who star in the documentary- Lauren and Kate – and the makers of the film – Richard and Beatrix. The evening was really positive and made for a lively discussion.
Here is a short made by Lauren about what happened next:
Now someone mentioned starting a Darlington critical mass….lets do it!
Thanks to everyone who came out and helped to make it a special evening. Cycle safe, and in style, see you on the roads!
Love The Spokes xx
