Mountain biking film night

ANGUS Mountain Bike Trails Association (AMBTA) is holding a film night at the Hannah Maclure Centre, Abertay University, Bell Street, Dundee, at 7 p.m. on Friday, January 13.

The event will feature the premiere of the new Canadian Mountain Bike film ‘From The Inside Out’ followed by ‘Gravitate’ a film following the tyre tracks of competitors in The Scottish Downhill Association race series.

All proceeds will go to AMBTA to help in their continued work in the Angus region.

‘From The Inside Out’ is a collaboration between Anthill Films and The Coastal Crew, both based in British Columbia in Canada. They are currently two of the most acclaimed bike film production outfits.

The new film does not disappoint, and showcases some of the world’s best riders, doing it like only they can in some amazing, stunning, hand-picked locations around their native British Columbia, a province of Canada which is almost four times the size of the UK, and features almost every kind of landscape imaginable.

Angus Mountain Bike Trails Association (AMBTA) is a registered charity (SC038565) the aim of which is to promote sustainable mountain biking facilities and the development of a trails network within the Angus area.
