“Na to rourou, na taku rourou, ka ora ai te iwi”
“With your food basket and my food basket, the people will thrive.”
The Big Bike Film Night is an evening dedicated to the love of cycling; and pedaling alongside us is our partner the Cycle Chic Film Tour celebrating, inspiring and encouraging women who love to bike.
As well as these two short film fests, we have the Big Bike Film Night ‘Feature Series‘ for those that crave even for more bike drama, more bike action, and more bike entertainment with inspiring Feature length cycling documentary films. These will be shown when we can find films that we believe inspire and entertain our audiences.
