Photo of Stacy & Brent with Cargo bikesAs part of the Fall Family Bike Fest, IU Transportation Demand Management is sponsoring a free screening of MOTHERLOAD; a crowdsourced documentary in which the cargo bicycle becomes a vehicle for exploring motherhood in this digital age of climate change. The film follows director and new mother Liz Canning on her quest to understand the increasing tension between modern life and our hunter-gatherer DNA, and how cargo bikes offer a solution. Ultimately, Liz’s experiences as a cyclist, as a mother, and in discovering the cargo bike world, teach her that sustainability is not necessarily about compromise and sacrifice, and that there are few things more empowering in an age of consumption than the ability to create everything from what seems to be nothing.

Doors open at 6:30pm for this free but ticketed event. The estimated length of the program is 90 minutes.
