Bikeminded Film ClubBikeminded, the cycling campaign run by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, has announced its programme of cycling-themed films for the winter months.

Following the huge success of our monthly film club last year, we have booked another season of free Bikeminded films. We will be returning to the snug little theatre under the Kensington Central Library for our winter programme, which includes films about a mountain, couriers and a toilet, all with bicycles as their central theme of course! We are delighted to show films from diverse places such as the US, France and Uruguay as well as two independent productions: Mont Ventoux Scala Paradisi and the recently acclaimed documentary film Bicycle by BAFTA winning director and keen cyclist Michael B. Clifford.

The first film shows on Tuesday 7th October and their will be monthly viewings thereafter. Entrance is free, but with invitation only, so make sure you get in early and book a ticket.
