Prepare to be inspired!

The Big Bike Film Night is on a mission sharing the best cycling short films from around the world with you.

Our 2019 collection showcases everything a cycling-centric audience could want: action, drama, humour, and plenty of inspiration; the evening is going to be unashamedly, unequivocally, and utterly bike-alicious!

Our treasure chest of stories includes… a spectacle of winter with the icy playground providing a visual journey as never seen before by bike; a fixie rider who commits a crime of passion; five friends with disabilities attempting a world-first human-powered ride from Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre 2150km to Mount Kosciuszko in Australia (what could possibly go wrong?); a New Zealander with a two-wheeled love story to share; a heart-warming documentary about a ‘community mother’ who runs a bicycle training program for migrant and refugee women in Amsterdam; and two pioneering mountain bikers undertaking an adventure in wild and unknown landscapes, riding only horse trails, in heartland Africa; ALL in the mix!!

These short films are a great reminder of why we love to ride our bike; with stories that captivate us, stories that make us think, and most importantly of all – stories that inspire us to get out and ride. Tales of character, resilience, challenge, courage, triumphing over adversity and much much more.
