Bike Like U Mean It

Naked City

Have you ever had a near-death encounter with an SUV broader than a double-wide trailer? Or noticed that many Austin motorists use bike lanes for parking? You might have, if you're a cyclist. But if you're not, learn more about the treats and tribulations of Austin bike culture by checking out Bike Like U Mean It this Sunday, May 5, at the Alamo Drafthouse in celebration of Bike Month in Austin. Rusty Martin and Susan Kirr's 46-minute documentary on local cycling advocates -- including frequent Chronicle letter-writer Amy Babich -- packed the house during SXSW. 409 Colorado, 1:30pm and 3:15pm. Proceeds will benefit the Biker Down Fund, established by the Yellow Bike Project to help injured cyclists. For more info, contact Susan Kirr at
