The Bicycle Film Festival has long been a catalyst for inspiring the urban cycle movement and, this weekend for its tenth instalment in the capital, will celebrate the bicycle through various cultural forms, especially film.
The festival, held at the Barbican, will commence on Friday afternoon (4th October) with a free Cycling Symposium, that will see a wide range of speakers and audience members cover a range of topics and encourage debates on London cycling.
Across the weekend, the Bicycle Film Festival programme will host an inspiring range of films including the honest and emotional documentary Moonrider, capturing Rasmus Quaade’s journey to become a professional rider, world film Wadjda about a young girl’s determination to get a bicycle and short film screenings featuring all manner of bicycle-related topics from fashion and art to racing and bike polo.
Other events happening in conjunction with the festival include Velo Jam, the Women’s track racing day at Herne Hill, a bike polo tournament at Newington Courts and a Sunday ride.
