There’s plenty of wild adventure at the 5th Annual Ciclismo Classico Bike Travel Film Festival. The Festival, a benefit for Massbike, presents 11 short films featuring two-wheeled travels around the globe – and this year’s journeys are the most exotic yet. From lava-fields in Iceland to abandoned wilderness roads in Kyrgystan, 2014 takes viewers further than ever before.

However - for many bicycle lovers, sooner or later kids come into the picture. How do children fit in with the fancy-free life of a bicycle tourist? In two of this year’s featured films, we are introduced to the world of family bike travel.

One of these filmmakers, Charles R. Scott (the “Family Adventure Guy”), circumnavigated Iceland with his 10 year old son and 4 year old daughter. Charles will be present at the event for an informal Q&A during intermission – learn about making those family adventure dreams a reality!

This year’s Grand Jury Prize goes to a phenomenal film called The Road From Karakol. It’s just about the opposite to the family films in every way – here, Kyle Dempster sets out on a solo journey across Kyrgystan, heading so deep into the wilderness that the roads grind to a halt.

In addition to the films, a festive atmosphere is on tap at this most-anticipated Bike Month event. A social hour begins at 6 PM and features a Cookie Showcase highlighting the delicious offering of local bakeries. Also included is the “Great Jersey Giveaway” raffle, which will outfit winning guests with bike clothing for their next adventure. One lucky attendee will win a free Ciclismo Classico bicycle vacation valued at over $3,500.
