Cycle to the Cinema co-founder and ShAFF Festival Director, Matt Heason, said: “Cycling has exploded in popularity. Our pilot series of Cycle to the Cinema screenings in partnership with the National Trust and the University of Derby, Buxton last summer proved a real hit, so we’re delighted to be able to encourage even more people to get out on their bike to enjoy adventure films on the big screen.”

“It’s really exciting to be part of the celebrations in the run up to the Tour de France and to be working with new partners like Sheffield’s DocFest, the Peak District Walking Festival and Ride Sheffield.”
