Good day on this sunny Friday.
For the second year in a row, the Tri-County Bicycle Association brings the Kalamazoo Bicycle Film Festival to Lansing. Nearly 30 films by international filmmakers, all just a few minutes long, are shown back-to-back in an event that celebrates bikes and cycling culture. Some of the films show off bike stunts and tricks, while others tell stories about cyclists or beautiful biking journeys. Some films follow a documentary format, including one about Kalamazoo bike shop Pedal Bicycle. The shorts will be shown in two screenings at different times. Local sponsors, including Saddleback BBQ and Sleepwalker Spirits and Ales, provide door prizes and other goodies. 7 and 9 p.m. $5 suggested donation. The Robin Theatre, 1105 S. Washington Ave., Lansing. ow.ly/pzK3300e5m2.
