The Big Bike Film Night 'Feature Series' SOUTH: Taupō
Our Big Bike Film Night ‘Feature Series’ concentrates on satisfying those cycling enthusiasts that crave even more bicycle drama with full length documentaries on a particular cycling genre.
This documentary explores what bikepacking is, and what it means to those who ride the Tour Te Waipounamu, a 1300+ kilometre race through some of the South Island’s most scenic but harsh landscapes.
WE HAVE ORGANISED ANOTHER SCREENING AT 7:30PM. CLICK HERE TO BOOK YOUR TICKETS.
Born out of the pandemic, The Tour Te Waipounamu is the newest, and arguably the toughest bikepacking event on the New Zealand Calendar.
South - The Tour Te Waipounamu Story by Kiwi Director Rob Dawson explores what bikepacking is, and what it means to those who ride the TTW, from Cape Farewell in Golden Bay to the southernmost tip of the South Island at Slope Point, showcasing backcountry New Zealand through some of the most rugged and spectacular country that Aotearoa has to offer, much of it privately owned and normally inaccessible.
After the movie finishes, there will be a Q&A Session with Peter Maindonald, one of the participants of the TTW.
So listen to the voice inside you; it’s telling you to go. Grab your mates, grab your tickets AND come along for the ride.
Adults $20, U17's $17.50, U12 $12.50 available on-line, as well as directly from Starlight Cinema
