How Much Can Ya Get for $15?

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Have I got some awesome news for you tonight!

Bicycle Longmont’s Film Festival is right around the corner and we’ve been adding stuff like you won’t believe. Take a look, but be prepared to have your mind BLOWN!

Since my last update GoPro joined the G’Knight Ride what does that mean for the Bike Film Festival?? Check this out.

You will have an opportunity to be inspired by the movies and setup for summer by our AWESOME sponsors!

First we’ll be selling drawing tickets

for a brand new GoPro Camera, To add to the excitement, ACME Bikes donated a SAH-weeet cruiser, too! That’s right, we’ll be selling tickets at all three shows for these awesome items!

But wait – if that wasn’t enough. Our good friends at Oskar Blues AND REEB Cycles made the whole thing “Awesomer”!

Read ON!

For every Dales Pale Ale you buy during the film fest, you’ll be entered to

win a brand new high rollin’ REEB 29er. That’s right not just a frame, a complete bike! This hyper – Ale infused bike is valued at over $3,700. The REEB will be on hand Thursday Night April 19th.

The REEB drawing will take place on June 16th during the G’Knight Ride.

We will, of course, have other schwag too that we’ll toss out to you all.

So maybe you should, at this point, run to the kitchen and grab a trivet, because what I have to tell you might be to HOT to handle.

We’ve added shorts to each of our movie nights and we wrap the week with the G’Knight Ride’s favorite band: Running with Scissors.

Our Schedule lines up like this:

Tuesday Night:

Short film - Shit Cyclists Say - by People for Bikes featuring Ryan Van Duzer

After the discussion Running with Scissors will take the stage to rock us into Friday.

The film fest runs April 17th - April 19th

Everything takes place at the Dickens Opera House, doors open at

6:15pm, Shows start at 7pm.

So lets recap shall we:

For $15 at the door or for a “Freewheelin movie pass” $35 for all three shows, you get 3 feature length movies plus 3 shorts, a rock concert and for a dollar or two you can enter for your chance to get set up for summer with a GoPro Camera, a brand new cruiser, some shwag, and when you decide to have a Dale’s Pale Ale you may win a kickass mountain bike! You will also have the opportunity to purchase REEB tickets for $5 each, too.

As REEB says - "REEB Me!"

Save some money by purchasing your tickets in advance, here.

That seems like a pretty damn good deal.

Proceeds will benefit the programs of Bicycle Longmont and will help us get more people on bikes! Bicycle Longmont is 100% volunteer run and is a registered 501c3 Non-profit. Our goal is to get more people on bikes more often, through education, advocacy, and encouragement!

So as we say – Bring a friend and tell a stranger.
