The Big Bike Film Night is an evening dedicated to the love of cycling. Riding full tilt in 2017 we premiered in Rotorua on Saturday 11th February 2017 – and are now screening this collection in other locations around the country – a little Tiki Tour.

For 2017, the 200th Anniversary of the von Drais hobby horse, we aspire to get BIGGER, better and more exciting. The 3rd Big Bike Film Night sees us return with a new collection of short movies that are original, educational, entertaining and most importantly of all – inspirational. All celebrating bicycles of some shape or form.

So whether its road cycling, fixed gear, mountain biking, downhill, BMX, uni-cycling, cargo bikes, bike touring, bike trekking, commuter, cruiser, cycle-cross, penne farthing, tri-cycle, tandem, recumbent… ALL are embraced, accepted and honoured in this tribute to the humble bike.

ALSO with the growing demand by female bike riders to have their stories told on the Big screen we  introduced the Cycle Chic Film Tour. A stand-alone bike film collection, in its own right, that is taking us on an exciting new path -that off helping to inspire, encourage and celebrate women who love to bike.

Who is ‘Cycle Chic’ ? She’s an explorer who pushes boundaries, she’s courageous and she an advocate for change- all through the power of a bike.


Looking forward to seeing you there!
