It's Triplets!

What better way to warm up for this weekend's 600K than the best animated biking movie of all time: Triplets of Belleville.

The movie is being shown as part of Raleigh's Bike to Work Week celebration.

Below are the details for Friday's events. Mark your calendars, kiddies, and don't miss the fun.

Cyclist Social
May 21, 5:30 - 7pm at Porter’s Tavern.
Mingle with other cyclists at Porter’s City Tavern (2412 Hillsborough St) and enjoy food and drink specials designed especially for the bike commuter!

Triplets of Belleville Screening
Friday, May 21, 7pm.
Free Movie at Witherspoon Hall on NCSU Campus. Open to all cyclists and enthusiasts. Come check out this quirky, animated French film about a cyclist who’s abducted and forced to compete in a never-ending race.

Here's a clip of a proper post-ride rub-down (look closely at 8:28 and you'll see a Paris Brest Paris poster):

And the Hoover song by the Triplets themselves, with a guest player:

It always cracks me up to see the little old lady keeping pace on her tricycle while blowing the whistle and holding her umbrella.

And when they get home, the cyclist collapses, but the little old lady goes straight to work massaging, putting him to bed, etc..
