Join us on Wednesday, February 26th at 6:30 for VCM Movie Nite featuring the classic race film, A Sunday in Hell – a chronology of the 1976 Paris–Roubaix bicycle race from the perspective of participants, organizers and spectators created by Danish Director Jørgen Leth. Peter Cowie of the International Film Guide called A Sunday in Hell, “Arguably the best film ever made about professional cycling”.
Paris–Roubaix is the most famous and dramatic of the spring classics. Much of the latter portion is over narrow, cobbled tracks that choke with dust on dry days and become slick and muddy in rain. For the riders it is a challenge to keep going without puncturing or crashing. The film captures not just the events of the 1976 edition but the atmosphere of a professional race.
Once again, the venue for the VCM Movie Nite – is the Mad Dogs & Englishman bike shop in Carmel on Mission St. between Ocean and 7th Ave.
VCM Movie Night is free for club members and a guest. We’ll have beer, wine and some light snacks, but feel free to bring your own if you wish. Or you can just put a few bucks in the donation jar to help defray the costs or volunteer to stay after to help clean up! No need to RSVP, just come on over.
