On December 1st, 2011, Kara Minnehan gave up her car and began a journey of bike commuting in Portland, Oregon. Bike Love tells her story.
Kara and Bike Love's Music Coordinator, Kim Walsh, chat about the film. Listen in:
Bike Love is a documentary film for the bike-curious, about human connection & community, feminism, sustainability, fashion, art & comedy in Portland, Oregon.
Bike Love Documentary Project will also create a companion photography book, "Girls on Wheels", which will feature the inside story of the production process and characters in the film, as well as a diverse array of photographs of female cyclists in Portland, Oregon.
Bike Love Documentary will compile a soundtrack for the film featuring local artists such as Tyler Stenson, Naomi Hooley, Luz Mendoza, and the Shook Twins. Following the premier of the film will be a show featuring live performances by a few of our artists.
