    [FONT=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Thursday 10th May, 8.30pm at Ort Cafe, 500-506 Moseley Road, Balsall Heath[/FONT], B12 9AH

    As part of...

    A journey by bicycle exposing the dark side of our obsession with cars and investigating better ways of living and getting around.
    10th to 14th May 2012
    Birmingham – Coventry – Rugby- Leicester

    Radical cycling collective Bicycology will be doing a whistlestop tour of the Midlands. With no motorised support, the group will bring their roadshow to four major cities, showing pedal-powered films, bringing together the community, provoking discussions, and reclaiming space from cars with Bicycology’s unique brand of creativity and educational direct action.
    The tour aims to point out that the dominance of the car is neither inevitable nor desirable. The dark side of car culture is huge yet largely out of mind:- from obesity to lung disease, climate change to strip mining, and 3 million lives tragically cut short globally every year, largely the young and the poor.
    Why do we accept private motor cars when we know they make no sense in the long term? How has our society become so entwined and dependent on car culture? What steps can we take to begin real changes and to free ourselves from this deadly embrace?
    Join Bicycology at one of our events and help us map out and realise a safer, cleaner, healthier, saner future.

    Scheduled events:
    Thursday 10th May - BIRMINGHAM - 3 Short Films & Discussion 8.30pm Ort Cafe, 500-506 Moseley Road, Balsall Heath, Birmingham, B12 9AH
    **Saturday 12th May **- COVENTRY - Parking Day. Direct action reclaiming car parking space as a public space. Coventry. Location to be announced: contact us for details:
