      NELA bikes! presents a benefit screening for BORP, following our regular
      3rd
      Friday Critical Mass Ride, Friday January 20th

      Bay Area Outreach & Recreation Program (BORP) had a devastating robbery
      last
      month. Dozens of disabled kids lost an exhilarating link to freedom when
      thieves stole about 30 of their specially-crafted bicycles from a locked
      storage room in Berkeley (complete story: http://tinyurl.com/9lk47 )

      After the NELA Critical Mass ride, there will be a screening of an
      informational video on BORP followed by the bike messenger cult film,
      "Quicksilver". Donations are requested. Pacific Gas and Electric will
      match
      your contribution, so a $10 gift will result in $20 going to replace the
      disabled kid's bikes.

      About the film:
      Quicksilver (1986, 105 minutes)
      Jack Casey (Kevin Bacon) used to be a hot-shot stock market whiz kid.
      After
      a disastrous professional decision, his life in the fast lane is over. He
      loses his nerve and joins a speed delivery firm which relies on bicycles
      to
      avoid traffic jams of New York City. He soon is attracted to a fellow
      bicycler, Terri, and befriends Hector, a budding entrepreneur. Can Jack
      regain his nerve and his self-respect, and rebuild his life on a more
      sound
      basis?
