A feast of films devoted to the bicycle and all who ride is pedalling its way to Bendigo on September 5.

The Big Bike Film Night showcases the colourful array of cycling genres at hand.

New Zealand-based curator Brett Cotter said the vision for event is to share the best cycling short films from around the world.

“We focus on the human interest side, and these films are a great reminder of why we love to ride with stories that celebrate the fun, adventure and inspiration that cycling enables,” he said.

After the positive response from last year’s inaugural visit to Australia, Mr Cotter made the very easy decision to return with the 2018 film programmes for two wheel devotees.

The Big Bike Film Night’s line-up includes a journey across the harsh desert landscapes of Oman mountain bike touring and the story of an American cellist who tours with a cello on a cargo bicycle.

The Big Bike Film Night is screening on Wednesday, September 5 at 7pm at the Star Cinema in Eaglehawk, Bendigo.

Tickets are $25 for Adults, and $16 for under 16 year olds. For more information on the event  go to To buy tickets phone the cinema on 5446 2025.
