Bike Film Night: Motherload

Join us for the ILLAWARRA premiere of MOTHERLOAD, a rollicking new documentary about how cargo bikes can save the world.

Californian filmmaker and new mum of twins, Liz Canning feels isolated and disconnected until she swaps her minivan for a cargo bike, a long-frame bicycle designed for carrying passengers and heavy loads.

Featuring stories from the US, Australia and beyond, MOTHERLOAD describes how the earliest bicycles facilitated women’s suffrage and liberated the poor, and how 21st-century bicycles are empowering mothers, families, and communities around the world.
