BSA Space presents the Boston premiere of Power to the Pedals: Wenzday Jane and the Culture of Change, a 30-minute documentary that follows Wenzday Jane, the driving force behind Somerville’s innovative cargo bike business,  Metro Pedal Power. A hands-on mechanic and entrepreneur, Wenzday discovered the bicycle as a means for self-determination while growing up poor in public housing.

The film portrays her extraordinary journey as she discovers what it takes to build a thriving company by addressing a fundamental urban challenge: how to lower the carbon footprint of our transportation system.

The screening will be followed by a discussion by local thought leaders including Wenzday Jane, President of Metro Pedal Power; Jackie Douglas, Executive Director of Livable Streets; Benjamin Linder, Associate Professor of Design and Mechanical Engineering at Olin College;  and Power to the Pedals director Bob Nesson.  The panel will be moderated by John Siemiatkoski, Chair of the Board of the League of American Bicyclists.
