Celebrate the Bicycle on Film with the London Bikeminded Film Club

Catch a film with a cycling theme at the London Bikeminded Film Club screenings this winter.

Cycling and cinema go arm in arm this winter and spring as Bikeminded, the cycle campaign run by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in London, launch their Film Club program for 2014/15.
