The Big Bike Film Night is on a mission- bringing the best cycling short films from around the world together for you.

Showcasing 2.5 hours of moving bike films that has everything a cycle-centric audience could want – action, drama, humour, and plenty of inspiration; the evening is unashamedly and utterly, utterly, utterly designed and devised for the two-wheel devotee!

The 2024 treasure chest of films includes:

  • a visually commanding film following one rider’s colourful adventure scouring the most beautiful spots from Guatemala to Peru via Bolivia bringing together a masterpiece of breathtaking images and memories
  • a documentary about a community of cyclists from Alexandra who all share a similar love and passion for their place, people and sport
  • discovering how a bicycle can be much more than a bicycle, bringing change to people’s lives
  • a determined father and his daughter prepare for their greatest adventure together: an ambitious ride that will push them to physical and emotional limits on a gruelling bike ride around Central Otago’s Lake Dunstan Trail
  • a passionate and quirky Australian cyclist advocating to “Ride your bike, don’t just romance the idea. Ride.”
  • joining 10 young people as they learn to ride a long way…. embarking on a 900km bikepacking trip from Wellington to Wanaka in New Zealand
  • a beautiful ode to adventure showcasing the importance of living life to the fullest on an 18,000 km bicycle trip in Latin America
  • a moving movie set in Scotland, showcasing how the simple joy of riding bikes can make a big impact
  • and rounding out the night, “Everesting” is a feather few cyclists have in their caps, but what happens if your cap is full? So full in fact, you think “why not do two?”

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 – inspiring us to get out and ride.

All celebrate the fun, adventure, and joy that cycling enables. So...listen to the voice inside you; it’s telling you to go.

Grab your mates, grab your tickets, go on… grab your bike and come along for the ride!!
