Bike In Movie: Big Hero 6

As part of Rideshare’s Bike Month, the SLO County Bicycle Coalition is showing Disney’s crowd-pleasing family-friendly animated movie Big Hero 6, a fun, hilarious adventure filled with robots, super heroes, science and a whopper of a whodunit.

Robotics prodigy Hiro lives in the city of San Fransokyo. Next to his older brother, Tadashi, Hiro’s closest companion is Baymax, a robot whose sole purpose is to take care of people. When a devastating turn of events throws Hiro into the middle of a dangerous plot, he transforms Baymax and his other friends into a band of high-tech heroes.

This year, as always, we’ll have popcorn and hot cocoa available, and our free Bike Valet will be there to park bicycles so you can relax and enjoy the movie. Riding your bicycle to the Bike In Movie is encouraged but by no means required. No matter how you get there, we’re looking forward to a magical night under the stars. Bring a blanket, sit back and enjoy the show!

The 2015 Bike-In Movie is?

Ready for the Bike-In Movie?

Rideshare’s Bike Month is approaching fast, and with it comes the 11th Annual Bike-In Movie on May 2nd at 7:45 PM in the Mission Plaza Amphitheater.

Last year we showed Frozen and it was a huge success. We loved seeing the huge number of individuals, families, kids and parents who turned out for a night of movie magic in Mission Plaza.

This year, as usual, we’ll have popcorn and hot cocoa available, and our free Bike Valet will be there to park bicycles so you can relax and enjoy the movie.

Every year the big question is….what film will we see? Today we’re ready to make the announcement that we’ll be showing Disney’s Big Hero 6. Have a look at the trailer below:

If you didn’t get the story from the trailer or you can’t watch the trailer, here’s the plot: When a criminal plot threatens the hi-tech metropolis of San Fransokyo, brilliant young robotics whiz Hiro Hamada leaps into action with his tech-savvy friends, and his robot companion Baymax in Disney Animation’s family friendly adaptation of the popular Marvel Comics series.

Mark your calendars for May 2nd and save the date. Of course we’ll post again as the date gets closer, but we’re so excited about this year’s Bike-In Movie that we have to share it now!
