Their love spans centuries. Will it survive a journey around the world?
After getting blacklisted from the venture capital industry, twenty-nine-year-old Edward Vaughan will do anything to avoid telling his wife what happened. Even if it means agreeing to her dream of bicycling around the world. Kara, tired of being married to a workaholic, was readying for a divorce. Now, she’s packing bags of a different kind. Together, they pedal away from Seattle, headed east on the open road across America, Europe, and beyond.

Five Australians attempt to cycle 2600kms from Oklahoma to California in honour of the westward migration undertaken by ‘The Grapes of Wrath’s’ Joad family. Through chance encounters with everyday Americans, the cyclists expand on the novel’s core themes of migration, inequality and the perceived land of opportunity. The group explores whether America has progressed since the book was written, discussing the wealth gap, immigration and the American Dream. The fascinating people they meet along the way reveal the enduring strength of human spirit despite the inequality and disenfranchisement which runs as deep today, as it did in Steinbeck’s seminal novel. The Bikes of Wrath is a unique, funny and insightful documentary series filled with adventure, literature, music, and human connection.

Safe Streets Day at the Capitol
Be a part of democracy in action at their Safe Streets Day at the Capitol!
As a bicyclist, do you feel safe on our roads, or would you like to see stronger laws in place to protect vulnerable users such as cyclists and pedestrians? Would you like to see more progressive laws in Colorado, such as adopting our own ‘Idaho stop’ law? Bicycle Colorado, your statewide bicycle advocacy group, is working to do just that–but they need your help!
The event is free, but they do need everyone to register HERE so that you can be matched with your legislators and make sure to order you breakfast. Come meet with your state legislators and share your personal story about why bicycling and safer streets are important to YOU. Bicycle Colorado will also provide talking points to help guide you through current legislation.
