The Rochester Public Market will partner with the Rochester Cycling Alliance to present its “Bike-In Movie” event, Aug. 11, beginning at 9 p.m., as a celebration of bicycle culture in Rochester.
According to officials, the new program will be added to the market’s annual special events calendar, and, this year, participants who ride their bikes to the market will have the opportunity to watch a free, bike-related movie, called “BMX Bandits.”
The Australian-made film about two expert BMX cyclists who get mixed up with bank robbers after stumbling across some misplaced walkie-talkies premiered in 1983.
Refreshments will be available prior to the film, starting at 8 p.m., as well as music, networking and bonding opportunities for bicycle enthusiasts and advocates, the city said. The event will also include demos and other bike-related opportunities, including registration information for the market’s new Bike Benefits Program for those who use their bicycles to get to and from the venue.
