The Bike Film Night 2023 - Visit Ruapehu.jpg

The Big Bike Film Night is riding into town on its mission- bringing the best cycling short films from around the world together for you. Showcasing our 2023 collection that has everything a cycling-centric audience could want- action, drama, humour, and plenty of inspiration; the evening is going to be unashamedly, and utterly, utterly, utterly aimed at the two-wheel devotee!

This year’s treasure chest of films includes a delightful young Australian bikepackers learnings from completing a scenic trip to Hell; a visually commanding film set in postcard Tuscany following a 74-year old bicicletta rider 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; two schools share insights into how they promote active transport within their school community; a tale of a rider with a searing thirst for adventure exploring interior Iceland; putting the ‘mountain’ into mountain biking - a Scottish highland 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 bikes with films that celebrate the fun, adventure, and inspiration that cycling enables, whatever your ride is.
