Cycle Chic Film Tour

Prepare to be inspired!!! Catering for a strong demand by female bike riders to have their stories told on the big screen these short cycling films have been selected to inspire, encourage and celebrate women who love to bike. Emerging and established independent film-makers form the collection with eleven carefully selected short films that are here to make an impact. The line-up treats include a magical journey of colour and creativity by an artistic mountain biker; a New Zealand female road cyclist who believes in the power of bicycles, an enthralling film set in big city America on two (in their own words) "bad-ass bmxers" following their passion; a bicycle store with a unique point of difference; MAMA AGATHA, a heart-warming story about migrant women in Amsterdam finding their way into a new society and the liberating feeling of riding a bicycle; and MOKSHA, a documentary that focuses on three Nepali women breaking through cultural barriers to spread their love of mountain biking. Showcasing women who push boundaries, are courageous, and are an advocate for change; all through the power of the humble bike. It’s the ‘thinking cyclists’ film collection that ALL genders will connect and enjoy. EVERYONE should see this -ALL WELCOME!! Ticket Bookings are available from our website, or by visiting The 4th Wall Theatre and buying your tickets at their Box Office ON THE DAY (Subject to availability). Our screening starts at 4:00pm, and will finish around 5:40pm. ONE SCREENING ONLY

Tag Oil Tough Kid

Tag Oil Tough Kids is all about the kids!!!

This event involves year 5-8 students taking on a giant obstacle course at the Yarrow Stadium grounds. This super fun event sees the kids climb over, under and through all sorts of obstacles while getting dunked in water tanks and being sprayed by the fire brigade as they race down the favourite obstacle of the day - the super slippery slide.

Children are registered by their school so if your child is keen to take part then talk to their school and ask if they are taking a group of students to Tag Oil Tough Kids in 2018.

If any schools are interested in bringing their students contact Terry at Sport Taranaki (06) 759 0930 ext 737 or via e-mail for more information or to register your students.

Watch this space for more information about the Tag Oil Tough Kid 2018.
