"With My Own Two Wheels"
As a tool for development, a simple bicycle can mean transportation, employment, even access to education and healthcare. With My Own Two Wheels weaves together the experiences of five individuals into a single story about how the bicycle can change the world, one pedal stroke at a time. This is an inspiring film to bring your kids to (age 10+). http://imagescinema.org/
