Bikeminded Film Club

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.

From Hollywood blockbusters to documentaries, there's something for everyone in a line up that will entertain and inform. They all celebrate cycling, whether that's the stories of the heroes of the sport, or everyday tales inspired by the bicycle.

Best of all, all the screenings are free, but you will need to book a complimentary ticket to guarantee entry.
