The idea of bike in movies seems to be springing up everywhere! Our newsfeed has been blowing up with photos of families rolling into their neighborhood park or couples making a date night out of classic movies being screened.
We’re glad to say that the Madison area will be getting their own series of bike in movie events called Wheels & Reels. Starting this Friday, July 18th Wheels & Reels will be kicking off with a showing of The Princess Bride, undoubtedly a fan favorite for all ages.
The event will be taking place in Fitchburg’s own Gunflint Trail Park (located off of the Capital City Trail). The park can be accessed coming from the West by Glacier Valley Rd. or from the East by hopping off the Cap City Trail onto Gunflint trail. Fish Hatchery Road allows you to access Glacier Valley Rd. coming from the North or South.
The event itself is free, but there will be a plethora of food and beverage available for purchase. Wisconsin Brewing Company will be pouring a great selection of local brews. Bonus: $2 of each beer sold will be donated to the Wisconsin Bike Fed!
Curd Girl and a number of local food trucks will be on hand to dish up some delicious local delicacies. Additional sponsors include RIVA apartments, Green Cab, Ian’s Pizza, High Noon Saloon, Dane County Credit Union, and Mapping Specialists.
Free bike valet will be provided by Madison B Cycle! So mark your calendars and get the family together for a fun night of riding and movie watching 🙂
Not to mention, we’ll be hosting a Fix A Flat clinic for those who want to learn how to be prepared while out on the road 😉
