This Thursday the Chainlink and New Belgium Brewing present Bicycle Dreams, a documentary about the Race Across America, playing at the Viaduct Theater (3111 N. Western) in its Chicago premiere. The 3,000-mile race takes about nine days and is one of the longest endurance events in the world; only about half of the participants finish the ride. The film claims to offer a look at the riders' "emotional and physical breakdowns, late-night strategy sessions, and great moments of personal triumph, all in intimate detail."

The 7 PM screening will be followed by a Q&A with Race Across America veterans and an afterparty featuring performances by BMX bike collective the Racketeers, a raffle, and $3.50 New Belgium beers. Tickets are $11 in advance (they'll be $15 at the door, but are expected to sell out).
