Bicycle love story documentary Janapar screening in London tomorrow (+ video trailer)

Bethnal Green venue for charity showing of film charting how cyclist set out to ride the world and came home with a wife

Remember the feature length documentary Janapar we flagged up back in November that follows the story of how Tom Allen left home to ride around the world and returned three and a half years later not only with some unforgettable cycling memories but also a wife he had met and fallen in love with along the way?

Well, tomorrow evening there’s a chance to see the film in east London with a charity screening in aid of the National Pro Bono Centre, together with a question and answer session with Allen and the film’s producer, James Newton.

The film will be screened at the RichMix Cinema and Cultural Centre at the Shoreditch end of Bethnal Green Road (directions here), with admission costing £10 and doors opening at 6pm. If you can’t make it along, you can still buy a copy of the DVD and accompanying book through the Janapar website.

Thanks to Mark Ames of I Bike London for the heads-up.

Simon joined as news editor in 2009 and is now the site’s community editor, acting as a link between the team producing the content and our readers. A law and languages graduate, published translator and former retail analyst, he has reported on issues as diverse as cycling-related court cases, anti-doping investigations, the latest developments in the bike industry and the sport’s biggest races. Now back in London full-time after 15 years living in Oxford and Cambridge, he loves cycling along the Thames but misses having his former riding buddy, Elodie the miniature schnauzer, in the basket in front of him.
