Movie Night

Every now & then a Bicycle-Centric movie is put out on a limited basis - there is one coming in April that looks enjoyable - especially if you have ever considered adventure cycling…

1920x1005_FB-EventPage_BikesOfWrath.jpg

””Bikes of Wrath, 2018 Banff Mountain Film Festival People’s Choice Award Winner….

Five Australian friends attempt to cycle 2600kms from Oklahoma to California in honor of the mighty westward migration undertaken by ‘The Grapes of Wrath’s’ Joad family. Through chance encounters with everyday Americans, the cyclists explore the novel’s core themes– migration, inequality and the perceived land of opportunity – and how the nation has progressed some 78 years after Steinbeck’s Dust Bowl depiction was first published.
It is through countless acts of generosity from small-town individuals and communities, to desolating encounters with ‘unwanted’ Americans, that the cyclists experience first-hand the startling parallels of the novel in a country still grappling with immigration, wealth disparity and, ultimately, its own sense of identity.
The Bikes of Wrath couldn’t be more timely. It’s a funny, heartbreaking, yet ultimately hopeful documentary that opens our eyes to the complexities of America, all while shining a positive light on the nation at a time when the world needs it most

Showings scheduled ONE NIGHT at various theaters across OC: Irvine, Costa Mesa, Newport, Huntington, Mission Viejo, Foothill Ranch, Anaheim Hills, Brea, Garden Grove

We will park at Alhambra Park, meet up on east side street “Raymond” - departing at 6:40AM and cycle to the staging area where we see and smell the floats up close.

When the parade is over, we jump on our bikes and pedal 8.5 miles away from the traffic and gridlock to lunch in Alhambra. Additional afternoon cycling is available for those desiring more mileage.

What to bring: we suggest you dress in layers, bring a backpack with change of shoes for watching the parade, extra gloves and/or jacket or hat, and a lock for your bike. Bathrooms and snacks are available near our viewing spot.

RANCH WATER DISTRICT COMMUNITY ROOM  

6:30 Social Time -  7:00 Presentation

ambulance.png

Guest Speaker / Program:
In 2018, several of our members have needed medical/paramedic aid during our rides. One rider suffered a broken hip after skidding. One rider passed out at the coffee stop and another nearly did after a ride from dehydration . Another experienced a heart-attack on a ride. One plowed into yet another and they both needed medical aid. And one was hit by a car.   In several cases, fellow cyclists did not know how to properly respond to these emergencies. Do you?

In a panicked moment, can you accurately recall the proper breath-to-compression ratio for CPR? Basic first aid for bleeding ? Detecting signs and symptoms BEFORE they become a full-blown medical emergency? Knowing a few basics could save the life of your fellow club member OR your own life! Our club makes every effort to promote safety, but accidents and medical emergencies do happen. Let's be prepared. Come hear the Irvine Fire Department paramedics inform and educate us on basic aid for cyclists. 

Please spread the word to your ALL your cycling friends about this important meeting topic. Spouses are encouraged to attend! A little knowledge could help save a life.

See you (and your riding friends) this Thursday . Refreshments & snacks at 6:30.
No spandex (or lycra) required.
