WIN Tickets!! Sheffield Unreal – The British Premiere

Coming to Sheffield on Thursday 25th June the collaboration between Anthill Films and Teton Gravity Research will hits our fair city and country. Cycle to the cinema are bringing us UnReal.

Anthill are known for their high budget, expertly produced and polished creations. Think back to their ‘collective’ beginnings with seasons and roam. Through to Arrival, Not Bad, and Strength in numbers. They take their art seriously and present mountain biking through a lens quite unlike any other.

You can catch the making of over on YouTube

Details of the event can be found on Facebook and you can buy tickets through the students union.

It takes place:

  • Sheffield University’s Student Union
  • 8pm Thursday 25th June
  • £8/£6 students

However, you can win a pair of tickets saving yourself £16.

Simply follow @ThisiSheffield on Instagram, then use the instagram hashtag #SheffieldUnreal to tag a photo or video that demonstrates why sheffield is so unreal for riding bikes. Entries close 5pm 23rd June, you can enter as many times as you like and the judges decision is final. The winner will be DM’d through instagram with details of how to claim your tickets.

Good luck and get creative… a photo you railing on non descript berm in wharncouver will not get the win however rad it looks. We will be rewarding the idea not necessarily the execution of your photo.

Printed bikes: The future is here!

You need to watch this video to believe it. Adrian Smith is making carbon fibre mountain bikes using a 3d printer that he built himself in his own garage. Adrian has a strong Sheffield connection having run Edge Bikes from the city back back in the early noughties after finishing his studies here. Smith is a old mate whose tenacity and devotion to making bikes knows no bounds. I’ve described him before as an evil genius (he’s actually lovely) but he prefers being a carbon wasp.

You can find Adrian on twitter and he has his own website and a facebook group for DIY bike builders
