Imagine if cities around the world cycled as much as the residents in Copenhagen, where 40% of residents commute by bike. What would our cities look like, how much CO2 and oil would we save, if more of us commuted by bike every day?
Alongside the film screenings, they have launched a smartphone app, which is designed to be a part of that change.
But they need your help. They need you to download and get using their bike tracker.
Here's our global and San Francisco progress as of Wednesday, May 20. We know San Francisco can hit an even bigger target.
The app will track your cycling trips and convert the distance into CO2 emissions saved. You'll be able record your own bike trips, and the data will be shared for city & global totals.
The more people that use it, the more feedback they have for a bigger discussion about traffic, oil and climate change.
Get pedaling to the movies and we'll soon be saving tonnes of CO2!
