Join Columbus Collective for an EXCLUSIVE showing of Road to Roubaix, a truly unique film about one of cycling's most historic races. We'll meet in the parking lot next to Bodega and watch the film against the brick wall of a neighboring building, an urban viewing that matches the grit of the Paris-Roubaix race. We encourage everyone to bike to the event if possible. There will be plenty of space to store the bikes towards the back of the fenced lot.

About the film, Road To Roubaix:
Celebrating one of the most historically relevant races in the world, the film highlights rare interviews with current superstars, legends of the sport, mechanics, and fans lead the audience through the brutal, unpredictable landscape that elevates Paris-Roubaix to its epic status. Director of photography Patrick Reis and his team masterfully capture the beauty of the region through stunning panoramic views and footage of the race, riders, and the infamous cobblestones which serve as the star of the film. The film deftly weaves rare behind-the-scenes footage, interviews, and a collection photographs—both contemporary and archival—that make Road To Roubaix an organic visual narrative that engages audiences from beginning to end. This is a rare look at Paris-Roubaix usually reserved for the sport's insiders.
