Plaudits for our 2024 collection from our attendees

  • If you only have one night a year out, make it this!!

  • Anyone into bikes will love these events… more people should attend these events, they are always brilliant – 11/10!!

  • Much more than mountain biking films. This was a beautifully curated collection of films each with its own story and while riding bikes was central to most the films were about so much more and would appeal to a much broader group than just keen riders.

  • 5 stars Very cool event showcasing a great diversity of bike-related adventure and history from all around the world.
  • Wowski!! So inspiring!!!!

So… listen to the voice inside you; it’s telling you to go.

Thanks to prize sponsors, presenting partner Ngā Haerenga Great Rides of New Zealand, and the Whakatāne and Tairāwhiti Gisborne regions, The Motu Trails Great Ride, and Cycle Gisborne you could  WIN A GREAT RIDES CYCLING HOLIDAY for you and a friend when you buy a ticket to attend a Big Bike Film Night New Zealand screening.

The 2024 treasure chest of films includes:-

  • a documentary about a community of cyclists from Alexandra who all share a similar love and passion for their place, people, and sport
  • a visually commanding film following one rider’s colourful adventure scouring the most beautiful spots from Guatemala to Peru via Bolivia bringing together a masterpiece of breathtaking images and memories
  • we discover how in Africa a bicycle can be much more than a bicycle, bringing change to people’s lives
  • a determined father and his daughter prepare for their greatest adventure together: an ambitious ride that will push them to physical and emotional limits on a gruelling bike ride around Central Otago’s Lake Dunstan Trail
  • we meet a passionate and quirky Australian “bike whisperer”
  • we join 10 young people as they learn to ride a long way…. embarking on a 900km bikepacking trip from Wellington to Wānaka
  • a fast-paced, fun, and feminist bike race film set in Toronto, Canada that finally gives a groundbreaking, nearly forgotten athletic hero her rightful place in history
  • a moving movie set in Scotland, showcasing how the simple joy of riding bikes can make a big impact
  • and rounding out the night, “Everesting” is a feather few cyclists have in their caps, but what happens if your cap is full? So full in fact, you think “why not do two?”

ALL in the mix!
