Bicycle Film Festival Tour Coming to S.B.

For the second year in a row, Santa Barbara will be the smallest city on the Bicycle Film Festival’s international tour. The 11-year-old fest was founded by New Yorker Brendt Barbur after he was hit by a bus. The festival features films that champion urban cycling despite the perceived dangers. Jim Cadenhead, who owns Cranky’s Bikes and was instrumental in bringing the festival to town, said that cyclists are in much less danger of experiencing fatal accidents than either pedestrians or drivers. The party kicks off on Thursday night at DNA Studios. Films will be screened on Friday and Saturday at I.V. Theater.
