“The Tour Baby” coming to Portland

Posted by on June 2nd, 2005 at 10:16 pm

A great new bike film about life behind-the-scenes of the Tour de France is coming to the Bagdad Theater for two nights, June 22 and 23rd. More info on this website.

Here’s a blurb:

The Tour Baby! chronicles Scott Coady’s amazing journey following the entire Tour de France. Watch as Scott embarks on an adventure of a lifetime armed only with a Sony digital camera, his passion for cycling, and a beat up Avis rental van he called home for a month. Experience first-hand the excitement and drama of the world’s most difficult and grueling sporting event.

Last I heard the raffle will include some pretty stellar prizes. Tickets just went on sale and will probably sell out quick. Get yours here

A local Portland resident put all this together in memory of a friend lost to cancer. All the money raised at these showings will go to the Lance Armstrong Foundation to fund cancer research. Learn more about The Tour Baby on the website.

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion.

Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
