Winter Bike Movie — Rising From Ashes
February 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
It’s the annual Winter Bike Movie at the Normal Theater. This year we’re showing “Rising from Ashes,” an inspiring, feature-length documentary about the first Rwandan national cycling team in their bid to make history and represent their country at the 2012 Olympics. Competing in a sport typically reserved for the privileged, a rag tag group of cyclists coached by the first American to ride in the Tour de France, are transformed into a powerful symbol of hope for a country recovering from one of the world’s most devastating genocides.

As always, the event is FREE and donations will be accepted and split between Bike BloNo and the West Bloomington Bike Co-Op!
