Follow Me – At a Cinema Near You

by Nathan 27

The crew behing The Collective, Roam and Seasons have announced a UK and Ireland wide cinema tour for their new film – Follow Me

Heres what the crews new company Anthill Films say about the film:

“Follow Me takes the viewer inside the action, capturing the unique perspectives and HD imagery the crew is famous for.

Featuring British rider and 2008 UCI DH World Champion Gee Atherton amongst a host of familiar faces, Follow Me is a modern portrait of mountain bike lifestyle, getting back to basics and reminding us why we all love to ride bikes. Breaking from the traditional single rider format, Follow Me is based on the idea that “no one rides alone”; mixing and matching the world’s best downhillers, freeriders and slopestylers in some of the best places to ride on the planet.

Think back‐yard sessions, ripping local trails, training bike parks, epic road trips and heli drops. Follow Me is all about good times, pushing limits with your friends, crazy adventures and most importantly having fun your bike.

Follow Me will change the way you see mountain bike films and get you stoked to get off the couch and ride!

Riders: Gee Atherton, Sam Hill, Darren Berrecloth, Ben Boyko, Brendan Fairclough, Geoff Gulevich, Matt Hunter, Cam McCaul, Brandon Semenuk, Steve Smith, Kurt Sorge,Thomas Vanderham”

  1. If anyone wants to contact me about the tour, new dates as they are added, etc, please feel free to do so.

    The last tour worked thanks to folk turning out in big numbers. Basically, the more folk who come to the screenings, the more likely I am to be able to do it again!

    If this tour is a success, Lifecycles may well follow in the autumn.

    Cheers

  2. a visit to Manchester is a must

  3. Any chance of somewhere in the Westcountry?

  4. Manchester is proving to be a tough nut to crack. Suggestions of venues most welcome.

    Planning on a screening in Devon if things work out. Got a great venue, just need to agree a date.

    Cheers

    Sanny

  5. Oh and I should add that Red Bull have come on board as supporters of the event so you may be able to expect some in cinema promotions at many of the screenings.

    Cheers

  6. Manchester – Cornerhouse on Oxford Rd?

  7. How about the Regent in Marple?

    linky

    Close to Manchester, close to the Peak, railway station within 5 mins.

  8. QUAD in Derby please (I know your doing Nottingham but Derby as well would be good)

  9. What about all us MTB riders in East Anglia, Bury st Edmunds or Norwich would be good

  10. Hebden Bridge?
    Sells tea and cake that you can take in…

  11. When’s the DVD out?!

  12. A second vote for Hebden Bridge.

  13. how about somewhere in the south as well

  14. Cornerhouse on Oxford Rd

    +1

  15. Do you have a venue for Bristol yet?

  16. Cornerhouse Oxford road is a must :o)

  17. Looking forward to the Inverness date…

  18. Hi – somewhere in the mid south would be good

    You could try the Corn Exchange in Newbury

    http://www.cornexchangenew.com

    Sanny – did try to mail you with additional details but the mail was rejected???

  19. ‘and get you stoked to get off the couch’

    How many folk on this site use the word ‘stoked’ in their day to day?

  20. Hi Pricey-t

    Try mailing me again..

    Re Cornerhouse. I have contacted them but so far without much joy. What would help would be for folk to mail them so that when I speak to them next week, they will have had a number of requestes for the film.

    Looking to do Poole, Tavistock, Bristol, Bath and maybe even Hebden Bridge.

    Keep the suggestions coming!

    Cheers
