MAMIL is a new movie that celebrates cycling by sharing the stories of different middle age male cyclists from all around the world. It explores the daily struggles of everyday people in their commitment to cycling, the sources of motivation, inspiration, and love for the sport. 

The documentary was filmed across three continents and features a broad cross-section of the world’s MAMILs (Middle Aged Men in Lycra). For some MAMILs, the everyday struggle to is getting on the bike at 5:00 am. For others, the struggle is a life-threatening disease that cycling helped them overcome or disabilities over which cycling allowed them to triumph. The families and lovers of some of the MAMILs offer their own perspective on the sport.

Tickets must be ordered in advance. Make sure to buy your ticket today. RSVP on this page only applies to the drinks at Brazen Fox after the movie.

 

Reviews:

    Bicycling Magazine:   

 "The film follows different men... all of whom have found cycling through a unique—or difficult—set of circumstances. Richard, for example, took up cycling after he was diagnosed with MS. Best friends Craig and Franko started to raise money for cancer research. Carlos established a bike club in Los Angeles to help his community... The documentary is loaded with stories that show how the MAMIL is so much more than a stereotype in a colorful, tight-fitting outfit.

     chickswhoridebikes.com:    

"Mamil is an irreverent and sometimes hilarious romp through the secret world of men and masculinity... All in all, MAMIL is a fantastic look at the world that is cycling, and in particular a first-hand account of the good, the bad, and the ugly. From injuries and disagreements to overseas trips and adventures, Waterbyrd Filmz, Head Gear Films, Film Victoria and Screen Australia have done a fantastic job of putting this masterpiece together.
