The 2021 collection runs for just over 2 1/4 hours and has an absolutely breath-taking range of short cycling films which are a great reminder of why we love to ride our bike with films that celebrate the fun, adventure and inspiration that cycling enables, whatever your ride is. One film certainly embodies this, a fantastic quote from the film ‘Focus’ where Steve Bate enthusiastically says “Tired, starting to hurt, definitely type two fun!” (context is that it is minus 16 degrees and Steve’s been riding for 16 hours in snow).

This year every ticket purchased to attend a screening of the Big Bike Film Night goes in the draw to WIN A TRIP TO NEW ZEALAND thanks to our Presenting Partner Ngā Haerenga Great Rides of New Zealand.

Stromlo Running Festival 20-21 November 2021

Q: When does 10= 220, 30=830, and 50=1020?
A: When a FIT member runs 10k at the Stromlo Running Festival she will shimmy up 220m in elevation, when she runs 30k, 830m up and, if she runs 50k, Oh My Goodness – she will have conquered 1020m in elevation. Suck it up, Princess!


Our wonderful coach, Tamzen, remains hopeful that the Stromlo Running Festival will go ahead on 20-21 November, and has mapped out a 10k and 30k program for FIT members. Sadly, it will be a while before we can safely resume any sort of organised group running, particularly bringing together people from all over the ACT and surrounds, but the program can be followed alone or in self-organised groups to the allowed size/composition/location and sanctioned time limits in the ACT Lockdown.

Tuesday in the program is the FIT intervals outlined each week in the FIT NewsFlash.
Wednesday and Friday Body Maintenance should include some strength work and stretching. If you are not sure where to start with strength training, maybe check out this article. Need some ideas for some yoga poses to incorporate? Maybe look here. If you are new to doing body maintenance work, take it easy at first – don’t do too much too soon.
Thursday’s hill repeats should be done on a runnable (4-6% incline) hill. Aim to keep your pace even across all the reps in the set.
Get out on the trails as much as you can for the weekend runs. We’re lucky in Canberra to have plenty of great trail options, so there’s bound to be something in your local area.

Above all, enjoy yourself and good luck!
