A documentary about women building self-esteem through biking

“The Wind in Our Hair” celebrates the way cycling can bring joy, increase self-confidence, and boost an overall sense of well being.  Following the film will be a presentation about how to borrow a bike through Pacific University’s bike-loan program.  Then . . . we will decorate our bikes with glow sticks and ride through Forest Grove down B-street trail!  Glow sticks will be provided, but you are encouraged to bring other lighting as well.
