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.
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
