Portland Hawthorne Hostel’s 11th Annual Bike-In Movie
This year we are featuring “True Fans”, an award-winning documentary about an epic cross-country bicycle journey of three men traveling to the Basketball Hall of Fameand discovering the real America along the way.
Each year since 2004, the HI-USA Portland Hawthorne Hostel has hosted a unique celebration of all things bicycles with our Bike-In Movie event. It brings together travelers staying in our hostel with local bicycle enthusiasts, families, and members of the neighborhood. At the Hawthorne Hostel we support bicycle travel as a fellow aid for independent travelers to sustainably venture forth and connect with other communities.
This event is free and open to all. There will be a free bbq dinner with drink available thanks to generous donations from our sponsors. We are also excited to announce the local talent of “Train River” an eclectic collection of bluegrass/stringband musicians that will be here for your entertainment.
We are especially excited about this year because we are partnering with filmmaker Dan Austin and 88bikes, an international charity whose mission is to empower people in the developing world by giving them bicycles that they can use to enhance their lives.
The Hawthorne Hostel is owned and operated by the HI-USA, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and is a part of a national and international network of hostels. Our mission is “to help all, especially the young, gain a greater understanding of the world and its people through hostelling.” We are committed to sustainable business practices, and for over 25 years the 34 bed hostel has been offering unique, safe, clean, and fun lodging for over 3,500 domestic and international travelers annually.
