If you’re dithering over what to do this evening then let us give you a little suggestion. Get yourself to the Hyde Park Picturehouse in Leeds to see Life Cycles, one of the most eagerly anticipated mountain bike films ever. Having taken years to plan and shoot, the beautiful High Definition film gets inside the skin of mountain biking in a way never seen before. We’ve just had a sneaky look at the DVD and you’re in for a treat. Here are all the details you need – tickets are almost sold out, so you’d best get a wriggle on…
Where: Hyde Park Picturehouse, 73 Brudenell Road, Leeds
When: Friday 10th December
Box Office: 0113 275 2045
It’s not just Life Cycles you’ll get to see, as we’ll be treating you to a screening of VAST, the latest European freeride film from Ionate Films, courtesy of Franck at X-treme Video.
You could also win yourself some nice things courtesy of Singletrack magazine and our generous sponsors, with the Singletrack crew on hand to give out some freebies. We’ve also got subscriptions, T-shirts, Life Cycles DVDs and a magic box full of good things (and some booby prizes) that have been donated to help raise money for the Mountain Rescue Service in an extra large raffle.
Here’s a quick taster of what’s in store…
If you can’t make the Leeds date, there are a number of dates left on the tour. Of these, the Penrith one is extra special as this will be the first screening ever of a HD mountain bike film in an IMAX cinema in the UK. 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.
We’ve also got Life Cycles DVDs in the Singletrack Shop now, so you can have your own home cinema experience – or just put your face really close to the telly.
At several of the screenings, Red Bull will be on hand with some great promos on the night, underlining their much appreciated commitment and support to getting mountain bike films on the bike screen throughout the UK.
