The Tour De Yorkshire once again will pass through Skipton, one of the biggest cycle races in the UK in 2018 and an outstanding event in the international cycling calendar. It has 4 stages and stage four starts in Halifax and finishes in Leeds, taking in the Dales and its surrounding area.

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.
