That one time, on your bike you…. Your most striking memory…. Oh no you di’n't!
Amazing things happen while we ride our bikes, good, bad and very strange. Tonight with the help of Crank my Chain we’re giving you a venue to tell all.
We’re recording the stories of bikers in this secluded space where it’s just you, the camera and a curtain.
Need to be anonymous? No problem. Put on the glasses and mustache and our editor will disguise your voice.
Start working your way through your bike memories and prepare the best tale you can tell.

Crank my Chain staff will be on site to help you tell your story. Afterwards, the collection of tales will be profiled on Crank my Chain and the Filmed by Bike website.

Bike Movie Trivia is happening at Radio Room in celebration of Filmed by Bike. Trivia begins at 8pm. The event will be crowded, so come early to secure a table for your team and grab a drink. Teams can be any number of people up to 6. There are great prizes, including free tickets to Filmed by Bike, Radio Room gift certificates, and more!
Radio Room is a huge supporter of Filmed by Bike, the HQ for our meetings, and, most importantly, the sponsors of our Golden Helmet Award.
Every year we invite filmmakers on stage to discuss their movies. This amazing opportunity to meet the masterminds behind some of your favorite bike movies is a powerful moment in the theater.
Filmmaker Q+A sessions take place immediate following the showings and usually last about 20 minutes, depending on how robust the conversation is. Come prepared with questions – the filmmakers love to discuss their work.
The sessions are free, but you will need a movie ticket to get into the theater.
In 2012 to celebrate our 10th anniversary, we featured two sessions of panels made up entirely of filmmakers from out of town.

What’s with all the naked people riding through the streets of Portland every summer? The Bare As You Dare documentary follows several unlikely-to-get-naked cyclists as they forgo their clothes and ride with thousands of people on the Portland World Naked Ride.
ABOUT THE FILM
The film by Ian McCluskey and a crew of assistants from NW Documentary premieres during the Bicycle Dreams program at the 11th Annual Filmed by Bike. This 17 minute piece follows a variety of subjects from a cancer survivor to a reserved homebody, who are surprisingly open in sharing their personal stories and motivation for participation.
WATCH THE TRAILER
Take a peek at this impressive documentary, watch the trailer >>.
ABOUT THE WORLD NAKED RIDE
World Naked Rides started as a demonstration against excessive dependence on oil, but have quickly spread around the globe as celebrations of the freedom of bicycling. Portland’s annual ride, founded in 2002, is widely regarded as the largest in the nation, though the numbers have not yet been verified. Organizers hope to get an official count at the next ride this June.
The jury spent a very full weekend reviewing film submissions, and we’re about to release the results. In the meantime, take a glimpse into the secretive underworld of Jury Duty.
