Come to Cinemapolis Thursday, March 28th for the annual Streets Alive! Film Festival! It's free, inspiring, and a great way to connect with other bike enthusiasts.  A short and sweet first half leads off the evening with films designed to inspire more livable citites. Then relax and enjoy Portland's Filmed by Bike Festival "Bike Love" program with an hour's worth of festival winners. Come early, the films start at 7pm. Plus there's free popcorn for the first 75 folks to arrive! Watch a trailer and learn more about the event.


Check out the Executive Summary of the Survey

In February 2018, Bike Walk Tompkins and the ITCTC commissioned a statistical survey of bicycling use and attitudes in and around Ithaca. We were encouraged to see more biking activity than anticipated. Our main takeaway is that a significant number of people bike locally, a larger group of people want to bike more often, and an even larger group of people want to see bicycle infrastructure in and around Ithaca.
