Prepare to be inspired!! 

Our Big Bike Film Night ‘Feature Series’ concentrates on satisfying those cycling enthusiasts that crave even more bicycle drama with full length documentaries on a particular cycling genre.

This documentary explores what bikepacking is, and what it means to those who ride the Tour Te Waipounamu, a 1300+ kilometre race through some of the South Island’s most scenic but harsh landscapes.

Born out of the pandemic, The Tour Te Waipounamu is the newest, and arguably the toughest bikepacking event on the New Zealand Calendar.

South – The Tour Te Waipounamu Story by Kiwi Director Rob Dawson explores what bikepacking is, and what it means to those who ride the TTW, from Cape Farewell in Golden Bay to the southernmost tip of the South Island at Slope Point, showcasing backcountry New Zealand through some of the most rugged and spectacular country that Aotearoa has to offer, much of it privately owned and normally inaccessible.

We are hosting screenings in Auckland, Tauranga, Rotorua, Taupo and Christchurch. Scroll down to buy your tickets:-

Rob Dawson, the Director, is also hosting screenings in Wellington at the Penthouse Cinema on 22 July, and Nelson at the Suter Theatre an ENCORE screening on Saturday 14 August.
