After a few years hiatus, local mobile bicycle shop Speed and Sprocket Cycle Works is bringing the Ciclismo Classico Bike Travel Film Festival back to the Pioneer Valley! For those who've never attended, get ready for an entire evening of cycling inspiration that will make you want to quit your job (as if you need an excuse) and hit the open road. This year, the festival is moving from March to May, to coincide with Bay State Bike Month and to get you ready for the cycling season! We are also moving the venue to the amazing and newly opened Bombyx Center for Arts and Equity!
In addition to in-person, we'll be offering streaming tickets to allow you to watch from the comfort of your own couch this year!
For those who choose to attend in person, come early for our VIP tasting event, where we’ll have a selection of fine foods and beverages to pair with from Provisions in Northampton. In previous years, lots of attendees were disappointed that they didn't splurge when they saw the spread that was available - don't be one of those people this year!
Every attendee gets a free raffle ticket (additional tickets available for purchase!) for our amazing giveaway of goodies, with all proceeds from the evening going to MassBike and World Bicycle Relief.
This event is made possible thanks to the River Valley Co-op, Provisions, Pedal 2 Pints, Craig Della Penna Realtor, and the Sugar Maple Trailside Inn.
We will be following current guidelines regarding masking, but all attendees are encouraged to mask for their own comfort.

The in-person festival will be held at the newly opened Bombyx Center for Arts and Equity in Florence, and concurrently viewers can watch it from home via an online stream, making it accessible to adventure-lovers anywhere in the world. It is the only English-language festival devoted solely to travel by bicycle, but you don't have to be a cyclist to enjoy these tales of explorers aged 17 to 77 enjoying the world and the outdoors.
Before the evening’s main event, there will be a VIP tasting and social hour sponsored by Provisions in Northampton, where attendees will get to taste a smorgasbord of fine food and drink while mingling with like minded new friends!
