    Susan and Chas have graciously offered to host a pot-luck on Thurs Apr 20, and we can have a social before the movie.  If interested, please email Susan directly at susan1718@comcast.net and include what you are bringing to the pot luck (ha ha, I know - believe me, no 4-20 pun is intended here).  She will then share with you time and Chas' address in Larkspur, which is less than a mile / within walking distance to the Lark Theater.  Deadline to RSVP with Susan for the pre-movie pot luck is Wed Apr 19, 8 pm PT, as Susan and Chas will need a heads up so they have enough pot luck plates, utensils etc.

    I and any volunteers can leave the pot luck a little earlier to save seats for our group as all tickets are general admission.  

    If you can't make the pot luck, that's all good too!  Just email me per the original post so I know you are watching the movie and I'll save you a seat if you'd like (or you can help me save seats!).

    Please make sure to pre-purchase your movie tickets, and I recommend doing so asap, as I suspect the movie will sell out.  You can buy your tickets online by clicking on this Slipstream Movie Tix Link

    Thanks all and see you next week (or on a ride this weekend)!

    Anyone interested in joining fellow PWCCers Lauren Press and myself to watch "Enter The Slipstream", a documentary movie about cycling and team work?  Synopsis below.  Tickets can be purchased with the link below.  Ping me via email here if you are attending so we can look for you and maybe even save some seats together, and also If you'd like to carpool Petaluma<>Larkspur.


    Enter the Slipstream

    SYNOPSIS: Jonathan “JV” Vaughters runs the United State’s oldest professional cycling team, an international organization of over 120 riders and staff that race across the globe. A former pro and teammate of Lance Armstong, JV founded the team as a repudiation of cycling’s rampant culture of doping. Over the course of a decade, he built a squad that competes at the highest level–drug free.

    In 2020, after sweeping the top three spots at the season’s first major race, Tour Colombia, his team appears poised to capture cycling’s most coveted prize: a win at the 21- day odyssey of the Tour de France. JV’s top rider, Rigoberto “Rigo” Urán, a Colombian superstar, is returning to form after a catastrophic injury. He is accompanied by two acolytes and countrymen, Dani Martinez and Sergio Higuita, both of whom would sacrifice themselves to place Rigo on the podium. A pair of U.S. riders, TeJay van Garderen, a steely veteran and father of two young girls with nine tours under his belt, and Neilson Powless, a doe-eyed newcomer, complete the ensemble. Enter the Slipstream lives within the world of JV and this band of riders during a year of insecurity and potential, voyaging from Colombia to Spain and onto France, where they fight their way from the Cote-d’Azur through 3,000 kilometers of French countryside all the way to Paris. Through victories and heartbreaks, these young men ceaselessly pedal forward while JV maintains a brave face and hides the secret that could tear the team apart.

    Along the journey, we discover why the Tour de France is not so much a race as a cultural institution. We learn about the sport’s fragile economics, made only more vulnerable by a coronavirus settling like dust across the planet. And we take inspiration from seeing how the seemingly solitary activity of riding a bike competitively is an act of teamwork in the purest form.
