  • Film Screening and Talk with Round-the-World Cyclist Julian Sayarer

    Our friends at Recycle-A-Bicycle are hosting an event next week. 

    Julian Sayarer, who circumnavigated the globe by bicycle, will be holding a free talk on Thursday, September 24, from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at 1 Washington Place (5th floor student lounge) after a film screening of Changing Gears, a short film about five young Londoners who cycle to Brighton.

    Julian Sayarer is a round-the-world cyclist. Sayarer is featured in the film, a 20 minute short film, showing the journey of five young Londoners as they cycle from London to Brighton. Having never met before, and each from different backgrounds and life stories, the film is a look at the transformative potential of the bicycle in bringing people together and breaking down barriers. It gives insight into the sense of freedom and independence young people gain from a bicycle in a city, the worries and problems they face growing up there, and how they react to new geographies outside London.
