New arrivals for the week of April 15, 2008

Guter Tag damen und herren,

A documentary? About cycling? Two great tastes that go great together! The Illini 4000 team have organized a screening of "What People Do", Zachary Herrmann's documentary about the 2007 Illini 4000 ride, on Tursday, April 17th at 7:00 in the Allen Hall main lounge (1005 W Gregory Dr, Urbana). You can watch a preview of the film on Zach's web site (www.filmsthatmove.com). The screening is free and open to the public. Please come -- it's great! This weekend's Illini 4000 training ride will take the team (and me, bringing up the rear) to Arthur... let's hope the weather holds out.

More bike news from the folks at OpenSource: OPENSOURCE Art is taking to the streets! Make yourself and your bike into moving artwork and travel through Champaign-Urbana during Boneyard Arts Festival. Paint your body, put streamers on your bike, make a float, construct a moving sculpture, pump up some music, whatever. Inspired by bicycle enthusiasm, OPENSOURCE wants to mix art, bikes and parades to create an awesome art spectacle in Champaign-Urbana. Festivities begin at 4:30, Friday, April 18 at West Side Park. More info on the web (opensource.boxwith.com).

And (the last bike news of the week... promise), with May being Bike Month, ChampaignCountyBikes.org is holding their 2nd annual Bike Fest, aptly named Bike Fest 2008. This year it will be from 11 - 4 in Hessel Park (Champaign). Among other things, they'll be showing bike films on an MTD bus -- how cool is that? Watch this space for more information or go straight to the source... on the internet.

Ebertfest is next week already! I need to start training, packing in the carbs, and catching up on my sleep. We've got all the previous Ebertfest films collected together in the Employee Picks area. You'd better get caught up by the time Wednesday rolls around. More information on Ebertfest, the films and the guests can be found on the official web site (www.ebertfest.com). See you at Hamlet.

More bike news next week (and some movie stuff too, I suppose). Have a great day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
