Shot in July of 2009, “A Million Spokes” is a feature-length documentary filmed during the largest and oldest bicycle touring event in the world. An annual bicycle ride, RAGBRAI® takes place in Iowa over seven days in July where thousands of bicyclists descend on the state to partake in an adventure that is singular in its ability to attract some of the most unique people you will ever encounter. Some come for the challenge, some come for speed, some come just to party and drink through the ride and others derive very specific meanings for the ride. This special screening in Sioux City prior to the 2010 RAGBRAI® will mark the first time this film will be viewed by the public.
The film's director, Varda Hardy, producers, Ken Gorrell and Talia Rodriguez-Shakur will join many of the characters audiences meet in the film to screen the project in its first public viewing. In addition, there will be a number of surprise guests in attendance – celebrities, film executives and film critics to be announced at a later date.
The film will be screened at the Riviera 4 Theater, 714 4th Street, Sioux City, IA 51101. Tickets for the 5 pm Friday, July 23 special screening are $25.00 per person. Admission includes a free medium bag of popcorn and medium drink. A raffle will also be held. Admission to all other show times is $10.00 per person. Additional show times include:
