The 2023 treasure chest of films includes a delightful young Australian bikepackers learnings from her adventure- completing a scenic trip to Hell; a visually commanding film set in postcard Tuscany following a 74-year old bicicletta rider (and his marvellous moustache) whose spirit personifies cycling; a team who have spent five years formulating a dream…and only one way to get it- via packraft and mountain bike, on a pursuit of a first descent on the gnarly lines of Dillon Cone in the rugged coastal Kaikoura ranges of New Zealand; two schools share their insights into how they promote active transport within their school community; the tale of a rider with a searing thirst for adventure, exploring interior Iceland; putting the ‘mountain’ into mountain biking - a Scottish highlands rider's eyes are opened to the healing power of the bicycle; an uplifting film that celebrates a humble volunteer whose community spirit is inspiring and so are the majestic winter views of the trail where he lives in rural heartland Central Otago; a moving movie that follows a family that chooses to live life to the fullest in the face of adversity; and rounding out the night, find out what happens when you combine an ultra-distance 320 km gravel race and parenting together over a 24-hour period (which is tougher?); 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!!
