The Bikes of Wrath UK Premiere

About The Bikes of Wrath UK Premiere

Join us for a film night at Bike For Good.

Five Australian friends attempt to cycle from Oklahoma to California in honor of the mighty westward migration undertaken by ‘The Grapes of Wrath’s’ Joad family.

Seeking to gain a greater understanding of the Dust Bowl, explore the central themes of the novel and discuss their relevance in today’s America, The Bikes of Wrath set-off on their 30-day cycling adventure with no support vehicle, no training and, as one member puts it best, ‘no real idea’.

Loaded with trailers, musical instruments and camera equipment, the group set themselves the additional challenge of surviving on $420 (the modern-day equivalent of the Joads’ $18 in the 1930s) and whatever their musical performances can yield.

Through chance encounters with everyday Americans, the cyclists expand on the novel’s core: migration, inequality and the perceived land of opportunity. The group explores whether America has progressed since the book was written discussing the wealth gap, immigration and the American Dream.

We will provide some light snacks and refeshments. Feel free to BYOB and any snacks.

Please arrive for 6pm with a planned start time of 6:30pm

Cost per ticket is £5, but with that you then receive a £5 gift voucher to spend at our West shop!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Bikes of Wrath UK Premiere are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
