Curator of the Big Bike Film Night Brett Cotter said the evening will showcase the colourful array of cycling genres at hand.
"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.
Mr Cotter said the stand-out film was Focus, which follows Steve Bate who is vision impaired as he takes on the Rovaniemi 150 race - a gruelling self-supported fat bike race through the Arctic tundra of Finnish Lapland, where temperatures can drop below -35°C and with the long hours of darkness.
Other films on the line-up include one man's mission to ride every street around New Zealand; an unusual Victorian pastime taking place in modern London; an Australian 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; the humble story of a BMX Club and their dream of becoming the number one Club in the UK; a film that celebrates the growing, sustainable type of tourism where everyone is a winner, and a unique bike builder who builds off-road cycles that help change people's lives; all in the mix.
