The first San Jose Bike to the Movie night is tonight, Thursday, October 22 at the Camera 12, on South Second between San Carlos and Paseo de San Antonio (that pedestrian mall type area).
Tonight it’s “Quicksilver” with Kevin Bacon as a down on his luck stockbroker who discovers purpose as a bike messenger. The story is a little hokey but there’s great footage of NYC fixed gear bike messengers doing their thing back in the 80s.
The Silicon Valley Bike Coalition will also have some bike schwag to raffle off. Watching the movie is (wait for it…) FREE. The SVBC encourages you to ride your bike to this movie night. Light rail and bus are also good options — the Winchester/Mtn View and Santa Teresa/Alum Rock lines both run nearby. If you’re coming from up the peninsula somewhere, the free downtown DASH bus can get you there from Diridon Station (but it stops running at 7 PM), and VTA bus routes 22/522, 23, 64, 81 and several others will get you to within walking distance of the movie.
Race Across the Sky about the Leadville 100 endurance race also shows TONIGHT in theaters across the Bay Area.
Me, I’m joining The Spokesmen to record a bicycling podcast tonight to talk about the Tour of California host cities (to be announced today) and other bike tidbits.
