Bike Bakersfield
Address: 1708 Chester Ave, Bakersfield, CA

Ride from Bike Bakersfield at 5 p.m. to Beale Library to view murals and painted utility boxes in the downtown area. After the ride, bikes can be parked inside the library to watch the movie “Dream Rider” at 6 p.m. and view the art on display “Through the Eyes of a Bus Rider” by Edward E. Solis.

In the movie “Dream Rider” a young man loses his leg in a motorcycle accident. While rehabilitating, he takes up cycling and is determined to become the first one-legged person to cycle across the U.S. The movie follows him from his initial rehab through the completion of his historic ride in Boston, detailing all the ups and downs in between.
