A socially-oriented group for everything outdoors and at least a little bit active! Everything is included from short strolls to the pub or coffee shop to multi-day backpacking and alpine climbing. We welcome both locals and those new to town, and both outdoor enthusiasts and couch-potatoes who want to venture into the wilderness.
Sign up for an existing meetup, or create your own if you can't find what you want. Feel free to ask me for help with the site, or the planning involved. Contact the organizer of the meetup if you are not sure about the equipment or fitness levels required. We are not a free guiding service; your safety and comfort are your responsibility.
Looking forward to meeting everyone! Cheers, Ian (organizer)
Screening at the Arrowtown Athenaeum Hall on Thursday 20th May, 7pm.
The Big Bike Film Night is on a mission- sharing the best cycling short films from around the world with you.
Showcasing our 2021 collection that has everything a cycle-centric audience could want - action, drama, humour, and plenty of inspiration; the evening is unashamedly and utterly, utterly, utterly designed and devised for the two wheel devotee!
This year’s treasure chest of films includes one man’s mission to ride every street around New Zealand, an incredible story of a transformative bikepacking journey through the Canadian Rockies; an unusual Victorian pastime taking place in modern London; a rider who has a burden of blindness and its vulnerabilities to contend with while undertaking a gruelling self-supported fat bike race in the Arctic; the humble story of a BMX Club and their dream of becoming the number one Club in the UK; a young female rider who goes back in time to carry the stories of the past into the future; four adventurers bikerafting and riding through challenging landscapes, following the historical trails to and from one of New Zealand’s most significant rivers; and a unique bike builder who builds off-road cycles that help change people’s lives; ALL in the mix!!
These short films are a great reminder of why we love to ride our bike; with stories that captivate us, stories that make us think, and most importantly of all- inspiring us to get out and ride. All celebrate the fun, adventure, and joy that cycling enables.
So...listen to the voice inside you; it’s telling you to go. Grab your mates, grab your tickets, GO ON… grab your bike and come along for the ride!!
