I Love My Bike with Four4th Lights

Lifecycles MTB film flyer for Farnham Maltings

The other day I got news from Mrs Four4th (Twitter) – Del’s other half at Four4th Lights – about an event coming up in February which they are involved with. It’s called I Love My Bike on February 14 – Valentine’s Day.

It’s a cultural event themed around bikes, which is very unusual for the South East despite this area being a real boom zone for bikes, with many, many mountain bike, road bike and leisure riders. Really it’s the sort of thing you’d expect to see in San Fancisco rather than Farnham but in this case, Farnham it is.

So, what’s going down? Well, primarily it’s a screening of the Lifecycles film at Farnham Maltings, an MTB/DH film that features draw dropping stunts, a great soundtrack and manages to leave you feeling good about our whole cycling community. Just our sort of thing, but rare in itself to see something like this on the big screen.

Also at the event will be Caz from Scott Bikes with a Scott Gambler, plus a Scott road bike and bits of Scott gear. Also attending is Scott Forbes from On-One with a couple of new On-One bikes, Bob Moore from BM7 bike stands, plus of course Del from Four4th Lights will be there showing off their latest kit.

Still from the Lifecycles MTB film

Other attendees should hopefully include a wheel builder, an Olympic level paralympian and a sports nutritionist so there’s quite a range of bike-related folk chat to. If you have the kind of understanding spouse that we all aspire to there’s also a ‘meal deal’ which gets you fed on Valentine’s Day before taking in the film. Full details on the Farnham Maltings I Love My Bike page.

Sounds like a great chance to get together, meet other riders from across the South East, and talk to some of our local industry figures, as well as seeing the acclaimed film itself. The Muddymoles will be there and we hope you will be too!

About the author

Matt is one of the founding Molefathers of the Muddymoles, and is the designer and main administrator of the website.

Having ridden a 2007 Orange Five for many years he's now running a YT Industries Jeffsy 29er and a Bird AM Zero Boost.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.

    Fanastic. I tell the other half that I’ve booked a romantic Valentine’s night meal and evening out…….errr…..maybe not

  2. Matt says:

    I’m going, having agreed with Helen that we’ll go out at the weekend instead. I mean it is on a Monday night after all, what a hassle for babysitters! I’m just thinking of the practicalities.

    Yes romance in our house is dead, buried, with the coffin nailed shut!!

  3. AndyW says:

    Lifecycles is an awesome film, for those expecting mad stunts you will be disappointed. Its totally different to a your regular MTB movies. I must have watched it 20 times already and still rate it. Anyone got a big enough cinema screen for a Moles premier?

  4. MrsFOUR4TH says:

    A few more reasons to come to ‘I Love My Bike’ Night on Monday 14 February…

    Chance to win stuff – a FOUR4TH light, a set of tyres, and some Mule Bars are all up for grabs. Check out the FOUR4TH LED Sports Lights page on Facebook or follow @MrsFOUR4TH on Twitter to find out more.

    There’ll be a bike-related photographic exhibition by Chris Linaker, ambient sounds put together by SSRadio and a chillout zone strictly for non-biking partners with magazines, a bit of complimentary chocolate, and a few free drinks (hands off, muddy bikers – this is for the long-suffering non-bikers).

    Book via the Maltings Box Office on 01252 745444 or online at http://www.farnhammaltings.com
