The Big Bike Film Night is racing to Auckland and onto our big screens for its fifth year. Films regarding bikes or cycling will screen in three Auckland locations from February and May 2019. This is an event suitable for families, groups or even a cheeky date night if you're bike enthusiasts (or even if you're not.)

It all began back in Taupo, 2014 after a three-metre-high bike statue was left destroyed by vandals. However, from the destruction there followed a glimmer of hope. Brett Cotter thought up an idea to fund the repairs of Taupo's big bike. The formation of The Big Bike Film Night was b0rn.

What followed was a collection of giving people from the film community. Sponsors, filmmakers, film production companies, and the local bike community banded together to support Cotter's idea. The event has been cycling down the country since 2015 to bring Kiwis a taste of biking to the big screens.

The festival's lineup is a mystery until you arrive. The event doesn't reveal any of the films, which is part of the fun.

The Big Bike Film Night Feature Series — One Day Ahead is on for one screenings in Auckland. The main event will see five screenings in Auckland from the CBD's Academy Cinemas on May 4, 5 and 7, Devonport's Vic Cinema on May 6, and Waiheke Island's Oneroa Cinema on May 7.

Buckle up your helmets and zoom in quick, tickets are selling out faster than Lance Armstrong can cycle.
