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

The 2022 collection 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!

This year’s treasure chest of films includes one rider’s colourful adventure through dramatic landscapes to the illumination of hot air balloons; a small school’s ambitious plan to create a sustainable way to increase students hauora (a Māori philosophy of health and well-being); three friends on a mission to the centre of South America on a treacherous 2500-kilometre bike and raft trip; a camp designed for female athletes to ride together and progress together; a group of young rowdies expressing their individuality through uni-cycling; a bicycle that is transformed into a work of art; a trail builders’ creative expression coming to life before your very eyes; AND one man’s journey from India to Germany on a tandem bike, who on his way picks up strangers to inform them about modern day slavery; ALL in the mix!!

These short films are a great reminder of why we love to ride bikes; with stories that captivate, stories that will make you think, and most importantly of all- inspire you to get out and ride. All celebrate the fun, adventure, and joy that cycling enables.
