About this event
13th Annual Ciclismo Classico Bike Travel Film Festival!Social hour with cash bar at 6:00pm, film will start promptly at 7:00pm. Wheel on over to the 13th Annual Ciclismo Classico Bike Travel Film Festival this Fall: it’s a celebration of travel and human-powered adventure on wheels, and it is the only event of its type in the world. Proceeds from the event benefit the Adventure Cycling Association, BK-NEMBA. ABOUT THE FILMS You'll enjoy 9 unique films from all over the world, many of which will celebrate their USA or World premiere at the event! Distant Dharma follows adventurer Rebecca Rusch as she sets out to ride a fat bike 350 miles across the frozen Alaskan wilderness. There are wanderlust-inducing adventures in the Alps (Bikepacking Munich Nice) and in Oman (Bikepacking the Sultanante of Oman) with camerawork that will take your breath away and get you packing your bags. There’s a Korean short film (Mr. Sisyphus) about a teacher starting to ride after being fed up with classroom-by-Zoom. We also celebrate our first teen-directed film from new filmmaker Frederick Joseph Garnerone, entitled 4 Countries, 4 Bikes, 1 Day. The ONLY film festival in the USA that focuses specifically on bicycle travel! We believe that adventure is for everyone: you don’t have to be a cyclist to enjoy these journeys featuring people young and old, in the USA and abroad! ABOUT THE FESTIVAL The Festival’s mission is to inspire attendees to explore by bicycle. Whether across the globe or a few towns away, there’s nothing that recharges and expands horizons like bicycle travel. The Festival will increase awareness and appreciation for bicycle travel by showcasing independent films that depict the adventure, humor, and growth inherent in two-wheeled journeys. We seek films that portray a broad range of experiences – destinations ranging from small African villages to a campground 30 miles from home; solo travel or a family reunion on bicycles; an organized tour from inn to inn or a shoestring jaunt with tent and sleeping bag. The Festival is a production of Ciclismo Classico, a community-minded Arlington company that has been a leader in active bicycle vacations since 1989. Ciclismo Classico C.E.B. (Chief Executive Biker) Lauren Hefferon says, “Since our start over 30 years ago, we’ve always been very involved with the local community. From our annual holiday ‘Jingle Ride’ to the Bike Travel Film Festival, we welcome the opportunity to promote active lifestyles and get people dreaming about their next adventure.” Through the proceeds from these events, Ciclismo Classico has donated thousands of dollars to a variety of bicycle and other local charities.
