From Squeaky Wheels: Women Don’t Cycle? Not These Ladies. Plus the Upcoming Bike for Pie

Squeaky Wheels - Woman Don't Cycle film image 2023Squeaky Wheels, the island’s bicycle-advocacy group, is hosting a free screening of the critically acclaimed documentary “Women Don’t Cycle.”

“This thought-provoking film sheds light on the barriers faced by women in the world of cycling, exploring the societal and cultural factors that contribute to the gender gap in cycling participation,” says Paula Holmes-Eber, a Squeaky Wheels board member about the presentation, which is aimed at both film and cycling enthusiasts alike. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Manon Brulard, the documentary “offers inspiring stories, insightful interviews, and compelling visuals that challenge stereotypes and promote inclusivity,” Holmes-Eber adds.

Mark your calendars for the screening, which will take place at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art550 Winslow Way, East, on Thursday June 22nd, from 7:00 – 8:30 pm. After the screening, Holmes-Eber will share her own adventures in cycling around the world with her family. “This event aims to foster dialogue, raise awareness, and inspire action to create a more equitable and diverse cycling community,” explains Holmes-Eber, co-author, along with her husband, Lorenz Eber of “Breathtaking – How One Family Cycled Around the World for Clean Air and Asthma.” *

“Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of a captivating cinematic experience that will leave you motivated to pedal forward towards positive change,” Holmes-Eber says. Admission is free.
