Bicycle Film Society 11th March Show - Six Day Bicycle Racing
The HBFS show for March will be the documentary Six Day Bicycle Racing.
Six day bicycle racing originated in Britain but was huge in America where it
was once the biggest spectator sport. In the 1920s and 1930s,
events held at indoor tracks around the the US attracted bigger crowds
and paid bigger purses than baseball, football, or hockey. This
fascinating documentary tells the story of six-day racing in America
from its beginning in the last decade of the 19th century up to attempts
at revival in the 1970s with interviews with racers and mechanics,
archive footage and pictures Trailer: http://youtu.be/DwBVgU-Z5oc
The show will begin with the usual 30 mins
of short bicycle films form around the world and if there enough takers
before the night begins will with have our celebs on bikes competition. The competiton seemed
to fall rather flat on the last show night so this will only happen if people request it happens before the night.
