MOTHERLOAD Documentary on October 17th
Join us for an inspiring evening celebrating the power and beauty of cargo bikes.
This award-winning 90-minute documentary explores the history of cargo bikes while following film director and new mother Liz Canning on her quest to understand modern life and our hunter-gatherer DNA, and how cargo bikes can offer a solution.
As Liz meets the people behind this push to replace cars with purpose-built bikes, she learns about the history and potential future of the bicycle as the 'ultimate social revolutionizer'. Her story is one of challenge, conflict, hope, and empowerment.

Bike Walk Connecticut Annual Dinner
Tickets are now available for BWCT's 14th Annual Dinner at Central CT State University in New Britain from 5-9pm on November 8th. This social dinner event is an opportunity to experience an informative evening of presentations promoting encouragement, inspiration and celebration for Connecticut cyclists and pedestrians.
We are excited to announce that this year, our Keynote Speaker is Bicycle Advocate Willie Weir from Seattle, Washington. He is a columnist for Adventure Cyclist magazine, a former bicycle correspondent for public radio station KUOW, and the author of two books, 'Travels with Willie' and 'Spokesongs'. His bicycle adventures have taken him all over the globe -- from the horse tracks of the highlands of Lesotho, to the war-torn roads of Bosnia, to the back roads of Colombia.
In addition, nominations are now being accepted for Bike Walk CT's 2019 People's Choice Awards. Each year since 2015, Bike Walk CT invites the public to submit the names of bike/pedestrian-passionate people who have made significant contributions toward improving CT as a better place for walking and biking. If you have a candidate, please submit a nomination here! This year's award recipients will be announced at the Dinner.
Annual Dinner tickets are $70 per person. You can purchase your ticket here.
