Singletrack sponsoring Life Cycles showing

by 11

In case you’ve been on the moon for the last few months, you’ve probably already heard of Life Cycles, possibly the most eagerly anticipated mountain bike film there has ever been. To coincide with the launch of the film on DVD and Blu-Ray (available from Lifecycles has been touring independent cinemas throughout the UK, wowing sell out audiences with its stunning cinematography and world class riders doing what they do best.

Not being ones to miss out on the action, we at Singletrack are sponsoring the Leeds screening which takes place on Friday 10th December at one of Yorkshire’s finest independent cinemas, the Hyde Park Picture House. Tickets are already on sale and have been selling quickly, with another sell out being expected.

For everyone who turns up on the night, not only will they get to see Life Cycles in full High Definition glory but will also be treated to a screening of VAST, the latest European freeride film from Ionate Films courtesy of Franck at X-treme Video. Moreover, there will be a very special short film screened prior to Life Cycles. We can’t tell you what it is yet as we are sworn to secrecy but believe us when we say you’ll want to see it on the big screen.

Moreover, as it is a Singletrack screening, we’ll have a whole host of goodies to give away on the night, charity raffle style. You’ve probably read the article in the current issue about the work of mountain rescue. Given one of our numbers propensity to have need of their services (yes Dave, this means you!), we thought it would be a nice gesture to give something back via a charity raffle on the night.

The Premier Ticket compo has now closed and winner, Chris Cook, in a strange act of coincidence has asked for tickets to the Leeds showing.

Here’s a teaser of what you should expect to see on the big screen…

    How do I get them to put it on in Bristol? Any ideas?

    I’m going tonight, woo hoo!

    Why is the only Wales showing in the middle of nowhere???!

    Bristol isn’t going to happen at present. The Odeon wanted a grand. Watershed have too much else on and Cube didn’t get back to me. Sorry but without a venue, it’s unlikely to happen. As for Wales, getting independent cinemas interested was a total ball ache. Thankfully, Joe at Summit Cycles was able to come up with a suitable venue at short notice which means folk can ride pre screening, have a hot dog and beer then chill out for the screening. Ireland was even more of a trauma. It costs over £300 just to get a certificate to screen the films. I’d love to go to Dublin again but it just costs too much to put on unfortunately.

    Hope this makes sense?



    Thanks very much Sanny. The cube not getting back to you – that sounds about right!

    Southampton, yay!

    Les Savy Fav, The Wedding Present, Atari Teenage Riot, Al Murray, Leftfield and Life Cycles in just over a week…this is living.

    Oh, I’m a tube – the second London screening is TUESDAY 23rd November and not Monday- what a chump!


    I’ve not given up on Bristol yet!



    I’ve seen it, and to be honest, I wouldn’t break my neck to see it again. Good but…….

    Woo hoo!

    Just confirmed a date for Bristol – get in!

    Proper announcement to follow but looking like the Cube for Friday 23rd January.



    Sorry , make that Friday the 28th – too quick with the typing there.
