Event Details

MOTHERLOAD is a crowdsourced documentary about a new mother’s quest to understand the increasing isolation and disconnection of the digital age, its planetary impact, and how cargo bikes could be an antidote.

Filmmaker Liz Canning cycled everywhere until she had twins in 2008. Hauling babies via car was not only unsustainable but took the freedom and adventure out of life, and Liz felt trapped. She Googled “family bike” and uncovered a global movement of people replacing cars with cargo bikes: long-frame bicycles designed for carrying passengers and heavy loads. Liz set out to learn more, and MOTHERLOAD was born.

The Carrboro Bicycle Coaliton believes that in this age of climate change the lowly bicycle plays a vital part in reducing our dependency on cars, and hope that this movie will move that conversation to the forefront. If you have ever wondered if it was possible to transport kids, groceries, and other items without getting in a car, come see the movie and be inspired.

We'll have a cargo/regular bike cruiser ride before the movie (around 4:30), several cargo bikes on display, music, giveaways and more. Join our email list at to stay up to date on the event.
