ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The Festival’s mission is to celebrate National Bike Travel Weekend (June 1st through 3rd, 2018) and 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. Ours is the ONLY film festival in the USA that focuses specifically on bicycle travel.

Wheelworks is pleased to support the Ciclismo Classico Bicycle Travel Film Festival. For over forty years, they’ve been part of New England cycling. They’ve seen and participated in the journey and look forward to where it is going next.
