    %% % NYC Thursday: Free showing of "Breaking Away" and bike repair workshop !!

    Booyah!


    Tomorrow night at the Times-Up! space on 49 houston, Breaking Away will be shown upstairs after the start of the free bike repair workshop in the basement. Thursday nights are open workshops, so bring your bike to get it repaired and tuned, or have your nagging questions answered by professional mechanics.
    The atmosphere is very laid back and cycists of all abilites are welcome. So get your ride in shape, then go upstairs for some tasty refreshments and enjoy the best cycling movie of the 80s!


    Xup is a NYC direct action environmental non-profit that, among other things, promotes cycling in all aspects across all five boroughs. It is an entirely volunteer based operation so feel free to donate funds, your time and expertise, or old bike parts. See you there.

    Screenplay. The same could be said of Ben Afleck.

    Breaking Away

    1979-USA-Coming-of-Age/Sports Drama
    N.Y. Times Review by Janet Maslin
    Best 1,000
    PLOT DESCRIPTION
    Dennis Christopher stars as a recent high school graduate in
    Bloomington, Indiana, who is caught with his friends -- Dennis Quaid,
    Daniel Stern, Jackie Earle Haley -- coasting between high school and
    deciding what to do with the rest of their lives. The four friends are
    snobbishly looked down upon by the college students of the town as
    "cutters," since they were born in Bloomington and their parents
    worked in the local limestone quarries that built the university.
    Dennis Christopher's character Dave wants to be a champion bicycle
    racer and he idolizes the Italian racing team -- so much so that he
    speaks, thinks, and acts Italian, all to his father's (Paul Dooley)
    forlorn exasperation. Dave falls for a college girl (Robyn Douglass),
    but is ashamed to admit he is a cutter and poses as an Italian
    exchange student to impress her. Dave is particularly excited when his
    heroes -- the Italian racers -- come to town for a race. But they are
    even more snobbish than the college students and rely on dirty tricks
    to keep Dave from winning a race against them. After that ordeal, Dave
    throws away his false identity and convinces his friends to enter the
    university's "Little 500" bicycle race against the college students.
    This light-hearted and heartwarming tale was a surprising
    word-of-mouth success at the box-office and won several awards,
    including an Academy Award for "Best Screenplay."

    I wonder who wins.

    Won't be able to make it this week...

    ...hey ATN, is any steady help needed for the mechanincs program in the basement? Whenever I show up trying to go and help out, there seem to be 5 mechanics for every patron. Are there any days that need scheduled facilitators?

    They probably flipped that layer for so that he was facing to the right (or for some other reason).
