Just had a great weekend up at the Kendal Mountain Film Festival 2018. The Friday night ‘Bike night’ hosted by Santa Cruz is obviously the main focus for riders, with some fantastic films on show including a showing on the big screen and interview with X Games Dirt Jumper Matt Jones and other personalities interviewed live on stage by Rob Warner and Lee Craigie it makes for a unique and fun evening of ‘bike’ related entertainment.

There are also lots of other inspirational talks, films and general outdoor 'stuff’ going on over the weekend and if you can drag yourself away from the hills, crags, lakes & rivers and trails in the Lake District. Films that we watched and where totally blown away by where:

Stocked On MS: , Twin Galaxies: and Frame of Mind even though I'd seen it on the computer it was evening more amazing on the big screen.

We ended up out on a ride & ‘hike a bike’ over Helvellyn (with a 969m elevation gain I was glad I had my oval chainring on!) on Saturday with ‘amazing’ views and plenty of big hill riding fun with some of the Santa Cruz guys before attending the Award night in the main theatre by the basecamp. Sunday we took in a few more films and talks before heading home after another fantastic WE.
