Here in our beautiful home city of Portland, OR; bike is king. There are a million things you and your bicycle can participate in: pub bike crawls, bike rides on the rainiest windiest days of the year, bike rides through fields of flowers and forests of trees, bike rides where they shut down our numerous Portland bridges, and of course the infamous naked bike ride.

But one of our favorite bike events at Sock Dreams is the film festival/street party happening this coming weekend April 20th-23rd Filmed by Bike. Every year around this time, Filmed by Bike shuts down a couple blocks around the Clinton Street Theatre, the theatre in Portland where one can go see everything from the latest social documentary to Saturday nite Rocky Horror Picture Show. The beer flows, amazing films are viewed and judged for prizes and there is a general excitement in celebrating the fun and funky in the bicycling community.

Sock Dreams has been a huge supporter of this event going on three years, providing raffle prizes, prize socks for enthusiastic cyclists and dressing the Raffilistas (folks handling the raffle) in our fabulous products.
We've also been able to flex our creative muscle by making a fantastic short film last year, staring several of our friends from Trek in the Park, Alter Ego's and Portland's roller derby team, The Rose City Rollers; shot by 10 Bridges Media.

This year we did a still shot with lead Raffilista and bike maven Meghan Sinnott in and around the Clinton Neighborhood, which is famous for it's bike friendly routes.

We will be hanging around this year for the street party to represent Sock Dreams and see all the nutty fun. Hope to see you all you Portland folks down there to support cycling and film in our community!
