San Francisco- The Bicycle Film Festival is celebrating their 10th Anniversary this year and they’re making sure that urban cyclists around the world get to partake in the festivities. With stops throughout the U.S. and international hot spots like Sao Paulo, Barcelona, Paris and Tokyo, the BFF’s mission to celebrate cycling culture is a driving force worldwide.
The BFF-San Francisco kicked off a slew of events & got the party started Wednesday night with the Festival Kick-Off Party at The Knockout and last night Mike Giant ( Rebel 8 ) hosted a group ride from Dolores Park over to The Sports Basement where everyone partied down at “Bikes Rock“.
Tonight the film begins to fly and folks will get a chance to view shorts “On Time”, “Belle Epoch”, & “An Apology” as appetizers to get them ready for the screening of “Empire“.
