Join us for a screening of The Flying Scotsman (2006) a British drama film which celebrates the life and career of Scottish amateur cyclist Greame Obree.
The film covers the period of Obree’s life that saw him take, lose, and then retake the world one-hour distance record.
Nicknamed The Flying Scotsman, Obree twice broke the world hour record and was the individual pursuit world champion in 1993 and 1995. He was known for his unusual riding positions and for the Old Faithful bicycle he built which included parts from a washing machine.
The film stars Jonny Lee Miller as Obree, Laura Fraser, Billy Boyd, and Brian Cox.
“gripping, affecting and inspiring” Russell Baillie, reviewer at the New Zealand Herald. Watch the trailer.
