One ‘racer’ even found time to make this tall-bike en route to Cape Town.
After a successful near full-house last year, Hebden Bridge Cinema has once again let us run a film night for bike enthusiasts.
This Thursday April 4th will see two great bike films screened at
Hebden Bridge Picture House in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.
The programme includes:
Where Are You Go? This is a film by Brian Vernor (who also shot ‘Pure Sweet Hell’) and it follows an off road bike race down the length of Africa. It follows the competitors from Cairo to Cape Town and tries to get over the epic scale of the race as well as the people involved, many of whom had never raced bikes before. Worth a watch, if just to see a Masai Warrior on a tall bike. I still can't see your house from here... Rider stopping for a cola in Zambia. 2008 Tour D'Afrique: a 12,000 KM bike race from Cairo, Egypt, to Cape Town, South Africa. Four months of racing and trekking though Africa. Where The Trail Ends. This Red Bull-sponsored film is everything you might expect. Featuring top riders and world-class locations, it goes to show what kind of spectacle you can get if you chuck money and helicopters at the scenery. Impossible-looking descents, big crashes, pain and suffering. All that good stuff. There's going big and then there's going big.
The doors open at 6.30pm with the first film on at 7.30pm. There will be a short interval before the second film, but with both films being a little over an hour, the intent is to be as punctual as possible. Tickets cost £6 and can be bought in advance when the cinema’s open. There will be Bridestones Brewery beer on sale, as well as mugs of tea and coffee.
See you there!
