In case you’ve been on the moon for the last few months, you’ve probably already heard of Life Cycles, possibly the most eagerly anticipated mountain bike film there has ever been. To coincide with the launch of the film on DVD and Blu-Ray (available from www.lifecyclesfilm.com) Lifecycles has been touring independent cinemas throughout the UK, wowing sell out audiences with its stunning cinematography and world class riders doing what they do best.
Not being ones to miss out on the action, we at Singletrack are sponsoring the Leeds screening which takes place on Friday 10th December at one of Yorkshire’s finest independent cinemas, the Hyde Park Picture House. Tickets are already on sale and have been selling quickly, with another sell out being expected.
For everyone who turns up on the night, not only will they get to see Life Cycles in full High Definition glory but will also be treated to a screening of VAST, the latest European freeride film from Ionate Films courtesy of Franck at X-treme Video. Moreover, there will be a very special short film screened prior to Life Cycles. We can’t tell you what it is yet as we are sworn to secrecy but believe us when we say you’ll want to see it on the big screen.
Moreover, as it is a Singletrack screening, we’ll have a whole host of goodies to give away on the night, charity raffle style. You’ve probably read the article in the current issue about the work of mountain rescue. Given one of our numbers propensity to have need of their services (yes Dave, this means you!), we thought it would be a nice gesture to give something back via a charity raffle on the night.
The Premier Ticket compo has now closed and winner, Chris Cook, in a strange act of coincidence has asked for tickets to the Leeds showing.
Here’s a teaser of what you should expect to see on the big screen…

This will comprise a double bill of Lifecyles followed by the other big film of the year, Follow Me, from Anthill Films. All the other screenings are of Lifecycles and VAST.
