Portland filmmaker Chad Berkley is making a film about the Community Cycling Center's awesome annual event, the Holiday Bike Drive. Remember Your First Bike? is slated for completion next spring but Berkley has already put together a trailer for the film and has just launched a Kickstarter page to help raise some funds to finish it up.
In the film, Berkley takes a behind the scenes look at how the magical 500 bike giveaway happens and interviews CCC volunteers and staffers for their perspectives. Berkley also includes interviews with notable Portlanders including Mayor Sam Adams and others.
Watch the trailer below...
Exciting project and it already looks to be a borderline tear jerker. Very inspiring and well done. I couldn't think of an event more worthy of a filmmaker's attention.

- Watch the new Cycle Oregon documentary: 'Beyond the Ride'
- Filmed by Bike releases list of films for 2011 festival
