Wheel on over to the 11th Annual Ciclismo Classico Bike Travel Film Festival this Spring: 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, and the Keene Bike Park.

ABOUT THE FILMS

For the first time, we’ll highlight two unique African journeys: one in West Africa and the other a mountain bike trek to Mt. Kilimanjaro, the roof of Africa! We’ll also showcase journeys closer to home, from a group ride to Alaska to the rolling Iowa summer party known as RAGBRAI. We’ll also be sharing the little-known story of the 25th Infantry Bicycle Corps, an African-American regiment of “Buffalo Soldiers” who rode from Montana to St. Louis in the summer of 1897. There is truly something for everyone at this year’s festival, and you don’t need to be a cyclist to enjoy these tales of adventure! Ciclismo Classico, the longtime pioneer in creative bicycle vacations, is proud to present this one-of-a-kind event.

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.
