This looks like it’ll be a good ‘un. A film encompassing everything about riding in the UK: “the riders, locations, landscapes, iconic brands and sh*t* weather of the British Isles, to remind us all how great of a place we get to live and ride year-round.”
The film is premiering in Fort William at Highland Cinema on 5th August. You can book tickets here.
Shires crew: “What better way to finish the day at the UCI Downhill World Champs than with the grand premiere of the UK’s latest bicycle feature film Shires! Rob Warner will be there in the flesh to present the film and afterwards we’ll have product to throw out from our sponsors and a director Q&A.
“Shot around the UK over the past two years and narrated by ‘The Voice of Mountain Biking’ Rob Warner, Shires encompasses a broad range of riders, racers, freeriders, and world champions. Riders include many of the best in the UK, featuring Steve Peat, Bernard Kerr, Mikayla Parton, Joe Barnes, Jake 100, Rob Warner, Jack Carthy, Rob Welch, Sam Hockenhull, Joel Anderson, Harry Schofield, Tom Justice, Jess Stone, Ben Gerrish and many more.
“Created by UK/Canadian film production outfit Pilchard Productions and supported by Hope Technology, Ohlins Suspension, Starling Bikes and Peaty’s Products.”
It’s probably a good idea to follow @shiresfilm on Instagram for updates about more screenings, online release etc.
If that’s whetted your appetite for some longform moving pictures about mountain biking, you really should check out ‘Mountain Biking – The Untold British Story’, which we’ve handily embedded below 👇
