  • The most inspiring set of short films you’re ever likely to see!
  • Anyone into bikes will love these events… they are always brilliant – 11/10!!
  • The Big Bike Film Night made us laugh, cry, feel inspired, feel excited and most importantly realise that life is for living. Thanks to Brett Cotter for putting this together and allowing us an escape from the day to day and the motivation to follow our dreams.
  • These short movies are a highlight I look forward to every year, so awesome!!!!! Just do it!!!!

Listen to the voice inside you; it’s telling you to go.

Purchase a ticket to attend the Big Bike Film Night and, thanks to our prize sponsors Ngā Haerenga Great Rides of New Zealand,  Kiwi Journeys, and Great Journeys New Zealand, you could WIN A TRIP TO NEW ZEALAND for you and a mate, including return flights for two, a self-guided tour of the wonderful West Coast Wilderness Trail Great Ride, and a trip on the famous TranzAlpine scenic train journey.

Our 2023 treasure chest of films includes

  • a delightful young Australian bikepacker’s learnings from her scenic trip to Hell
  • a visually commanding film set in postcard Tuscany following a 74-year-old rider who personifies the spirit of cycling
  • a team who have spent five years formulating a dream…and only one way to get it – via packraft and mountain bike, on a pursuit of the first descent on the gnarly lines of Dillon Cone in the rugged coastal Kaikoura ranges of New Zealand
  • two Brisbane schools sharing their insights into how they promote active transport within their school community
  • the tale of a rider with a searing thirst for adventure, exploring Iceland’s spectacular interior
  • putting the ‘mountain’ into mountain biking – a Scottish Highlands rider’s eyes are opened to the healing power of the bicycle
  • an uplifting film that celebrates a humble volunteer whose community spirit is inspiring as are the majestic winter views of the trail where he lives
  • a moving movie that follows a family that chooses to live life to the fullest in the face of adversity
  • and rounding out the night, find out what happens when you combine an ultra-distance 320 km gravel race and parenting together over a 24-hour period (which is tougher?); ALL in the mix!
