A cinema is to mark Bristol's Cycling City status this Saturday by screening cycling films and hosting a pedal-powered party.

The Cube cinema in Kingsdown is showing ‘Veer’, a documentary about the cycle scene and bike culture in Portland, USA. Featuring an array of cycle culture that includes bike jousting, cycle chariot racing, tall bikes and ‘zoo bombing’, the film has proven to be hugely popular with cyclists around the world.

The night will also mark the debut of female mini bike display team ‘Les Velobicis’.

After that, there's a session of bicycle-powered Scalextrix, provided by the Bristol Bike Project, plus a few other cycle-related novelties on offer.

The Veer Cycling Night at the Cube on Saturday February 13 starts from 5pm and tickets are £4/£5.
