The Bikeminded Film Festival

When: 20 June 2013, during National Bike Week.
Where: Coronet Cinema, Notting Hill.
Price: £5

At Bikeminded’s first cycling film festival, there will be a selection of highly entertaining short films from Bikeminded’s Cycle Shorts series, culminating in the festival finale feature film ‘Janapar’. It is about one man’s travels around the world on his bike. That’s fascinating in itself, but it’s also a life-affirming, incredibly moving story of life and love as one man travels across the globe in search of his cycling-focused destiny.
