NEW ZEALAND (COVID-19 : Update 8 October 2021)

Our screening of THE BIG BIKE FILM NIGHT FEATURE SERIES: SOUTH: The Tour Te Waipounamu Story in Auckland still needs to be rescheduled to a later date once the roadmap to reopening is better understood (Cinemas can’t open in Alert Level 3 status). Full refunds will be given if we can’t secure a new date or if that date doesn’t suit.
Kia kaha everyone!!!


AUSTRALIA (COVID-19 : Update 8 October 2021)

Our 2021 tour will be over September to Deceember- for full details click here.

We have rescheduled a number of screenings to new dates, so lock it in!

As much as I can’t wait to showcase this inspiring collection of cycling films (as I am sure you can’t either) I am 100% committed to only doing so in a safe and responsible way and am monitoring developments in Australia, along with the safety measures of conducting a screening.


For our New Zealand audiences, as well as our short film collection, 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.
