Grid Shots: Bicycle Film Festival

What a busy weekend! One that I was mostly sick for, but I still made it out to 3 of the 5 screenings, a few minutes of Goldsprints (John stayed longer), and the BMX BBQ JAM.

The Bicycle Film Festival was held at the Logan Square Auditorium (2539 N Kedzie Blvd) and the BMX BBQ JAM (with free veggie burgers from River Valley Kitchens) was held at the Logan Square skate park (2430 W Logan Blvd). I’ll be writing reviews of some of the films in a couple weeks.

Goldsprints, as festival producer Terry Bloom explained in the video interview, is the signature event. Two riders race against each other, but can’t see their progress.

Goldsprints progress is displayed to the audience on a projection screen behind the racers.

BMXers line up to take part in the slow race. Last person across the finish line wins.
