Friday Round-Up: Scraper Bikes

Unless you’ve been living in a deep, dark cave… You may have noticed that there is a lot of cool stuff going on out there. So, we thought it was high-time we started rounding up some of our faves each Friday. Every month, we’ll be choosing a theme that fits with the Osprey lifestyle. We kicked off the month with 5 Point Film Festival, and we’re counting down the days to Mountainfilm in Telluride, so this month we’re devoting it to… you guessed it: film! Welcome to the Osprey Friday Round-Up!

Since it’s National Bike Month, we figured showcasing a bike-centric film would be appropriate.

We were truly inspired this week by Scrapertown, a film about the Scraper Bike movement in Oakland, California.

Talk about using bikes to empower youth. “The Scraper Bike Movement seeks to capture the creativity of youth living within dangerous communities. It gives them a positive outlet that is fun, educational, and promotes healthy lifestyles. The Scraper Bike Movement offers youth a sustainable group of peers that is positive and motivating.”

Watch and be inspired.
