The Green Iowa AmeriCorps team through the Winneshiek Energy District is excited to present "Bikes vs Cars" on Friday, June 12 in Decorah. "Bikes vs Cars" is a brand new documentary that premiered in March and is currently only available to see through the film festival circuit and specially-arranged screenings.

Please join us for this one-night-only screening, taking place in the Vesterheim Museum courtyard on Water Street. The showing is free and open to everyone thanks to generous sponsorship by Oneota Film Festival, Oneota Community Food Co-op, Decorah Bicycles, Decorah Human Powered Trails, and Luther College's Center for Sustainable Communities.

We encourage you to walk or 'bike-in' to the movie, but please bring a chair or blanket for seating.

The film will begin at 8pm on June 12th. It's approximately 90 minutes in length.

The Green Iowa team believes the message of the film will resonate with Decorah-area residents, as bicycling is a part of the city's culture.

The synopsis is below. We hope to see you at the screening!

The bicycle is an amazing tool for change. Activists and cities all over the world are moving towards a new system. But will the economic powers allow it? It’s an uneven fight. Activists and politicians that work for change are facing powerful interests who gain from the private car investing billions each year on lobbying and advertising to protect their business.

The world needs radical changes to save the climate and the environment, but the car industry is selling more cars than ever. Today there are one billion cars in the world. By 2020, that number will double.

The film follows the individuals around the world that are dedicated to creating change. From bike activists in Sao Paulo and Los Angeles, fighting for safe bike lanes, to the City of Copenhagen, where forty percent of citizens commute by bike daily, "Bikes vs Cars" will look at both the struggle for bicyclists in a society dominated by cars, and the revolutionary changes that could take place if more cities moved away from car-centric models and became more bike-friendly.
