Event Alert: Village Bike Project

Terry from Doma sent over this information about a great event they are having at North Idaho College. I have been hearing a lot about the Village Bicycle Project. John Speare from CyclingSpokane and Jon Fish from Mountain Gear have been putting a lot of work into this idea.

You are invited to a documentary film showing by Eric Matties and Tricia

Todd called "Ayamye". The film is about a grassroots project founded by

Moscow Idaho resident, David Peckham, called the Village Bicycle Project.

The project works to address the critical lack of basic reliable, affordable

transport for millions of Africans by transporting donated used bicycles,

teaching bicycle maintenance, and by providing tools for bicycle repairs in

African Villages.

The film will be showing at NIC's Meyer Health and Science Building Room #106 in

Coeur d'Alene on Thursday, January 17th at 7:00PM.

DOMA is supporting the efforts of the Village Bicycle Project because we

feel that bicycles are an important solution to economic stability,

pollution, energy crisis, and climate change.

Help us spread the word about this incredible film screening by forwarding

this invite to your friends and family. For any questions, contact us at
