ShortHills Cycling Club Hosts Niagara Debut of “Women Of Dirt” Mountain Biking Movie on April 28th
ShortHills Cycling Club is proud to present Niagara’s premiere viewing of the movie Awesome Land: Women of Dirt on April 28th, at The Funky Monkey Bar & Grill, 129 Main Street West, Port Colborne, ON.
The sport of mountain biking has long been a male dominated sport and until recently all forms of media covering this sport have focused on the men with an occasional mention to women. There has been a large influx of women participating in all forms of mountain biking and the level of talent has been exponentially increasing.
Awesome Land: Women of Dirt is a groundbreaking film by the filmmakers at Bones Over Metal that spotlights some of the most talented women on two wheels and the lifestyles they lead to allow them to ride. Awesome Land: Women of Dirt celebrates the mountain bike while celebrating the women who love them. This is a beautiful and energetic film that opens a window into an “awesome world.”
Bring your mountain bike for a fun trail ride led by Niagara’s own Women of Dirt starting at 6:00pm at the Funky Monkey Bar & Grill. An evening of great food and drink, movie watching, and prize draws will follow at 8:00pm.
Tickets may be purchased for $5.00 at the door. First come, first served. The ShortHills Cycling Club welcomes non-Club members. Please arrive early at 5:30pm to sign in. Men are invited to this open event.
