Whenever the Banff Mountain Film Festival pops up on our radar, we get excited.

So when we heard that a fresh new Radical Reels Tour was returning to Australia we were keen on details.

Radical Reels takes outdoor sports films to a whole new pumped-up level – this is a collection of BMFF's steepest, fastest, most full-on, adrenaline charged real life action adventure short films.

This’ll get the heart rate going.

If you’re a sports junkie who wants a fix even during your down time, or you’re more of a scaredy cat (err – that would be me) and prefer to just watch crazy riding from the comfort of the cinema, then you’re going to have a top night out.

There’s two bike related films on offer as part of this year’s Tour:

Sufferfest follows a quest to climb all 15 of California’s 14,000 foot peaks using only bikes, hiking and climbing to get up, down and around.

NotBad spectacularly captures ‘30 days of bicycle tomfoolery in New Zealand’- a bunch of super skilled MTB lads totally living the dream.

Get your bike fix along with other adventure stories, too; from peeps hurtling off massive table top jumps to a flying human wingsuiter with no fear. Definitely won’t be trying that at home.

It’s back and it’s epic. Get on board.
