Field Guide Filmmakers Stop in Salem

Thursday Nick Peterson and Mary DeFreese biked from Portland to show their film, Field Guide to November Days. It's part of a 5 week, 11 stop, bicycle tour of the west coast!

Thursday's showing was at the High Street Cinema, and Nick and Mary met fellow bicyclists at Clockworks Cafe before biking over to the Cinema. At Clockworks they freshened up and changed into street clothes for the showing. We talked about Portland Road, about bicycle infrastructure and advocacy in Salem, and about their wild segment on I-5 in Washington. After Salem they were biking to Eugene for a showing last night. It was great to meet them and inspiring see the DIY spirit in action!

Next up is a longer segment down to Eureka and a trip down the California coast. They're blogging about the tour, so check here to follow their progress!

Thanks for stopping by and best wishes on the Epic Bicycle Tour!
