We are celebrating this event by holding a screening of this epic cycling film!

The remarkable true story of Scottish cyclist Graeme Obree. In 1993, and as an unemployed amateur, Obree broke the world one-hour record on a bike of his own revolutionary design, which he constructed out of scrap metal and parts of a washing machine.

The biggest obstacle Obree has to overcome isn’t physical, but financial and psychological.
