Bicycle Film Festival and Red Bull Minidrome in Tallinn!

Hey all the Finnish boys and girls!

I’m Risto from Tallinn Estonia. I’m the founder and organizer of Simpel Session – a BMX and skate contest. Maybe you have heard about it? We’re also doing our Summer Session events in Helsinki.
But the reason I’m contacting you in this forum is that we’re bringing Bicycle Film Festival to Tallinn in the first week of June.
We’re also doing Red Bull Minidrome the same weekend as well as bunch of other fun bike related stuff. So it’s days full of bike events, bike films, parties etc.

All the Finnish bike enthusiasts are very very welcome to Tallinn!!! I already know a few that are coming too.
It’s the first time BFF is coming to this side of Europe. And the first time the Minidrome will be happening outside of UK and NZ.

No niin, tulihan se ohjelma viimein sieltä.

“Keskarijengin” puitteissa on suunnitteilla pienen retkikunnan lähettäminen edustamaan yksivaihdetta Tallinnaan. Mistään virallisen kimppamatkan järjestämisestä tässä ei kuitenkaan ole kyse, koska kukaan tuskin haluaa ryhtyä täällä yleiseksi matkanjärjestäjäksi mutta päivitän tänne lisätietoja sitä mukaan kun matka aikatauluineen ja muine spekseineen varmistuu. Kaikki olette tietenkin tervetulleita mukaan jengiin eksursiolle.

Nyt hotlaa kärkkymään! Biitteri kasaan vai uskaltaisikohan ihan Gan Wellilla lähteä.

We can offer bikes for free on Viking Line!

Viking Line sponssaa Tallinnan Bicycle Film Festivaalia ja Tallinnan pyöräviikkoa siten, että pyörät saa ilmaiseksi laivalle. Järjestäjän täytyy vaan toimittaa nimet Vikingille, joten laittakaa viestiä osoitteeseen info@tallinnbicycleweek.ee ja otsikoksi Helsinki-Tallinna, niin saatte nimen listaan. Laittakaa viestiin myös syntymäaika ja millä laivalla menette. Lähettäkää nimet ennen 20 toukokuu!

Perkules. Perjantaina vasta pääsis lähtöön. Ketäs muita on lähdössä?

Meikäläinen on näillä näkymin paikalla jo torstaina. Pitäisi pakata 5-6 fillaria pieneen
autoon :slight_smile:

-Olli

yrittää paikalle lauantai-päiväksi.

Varmaan kans tulossa ainakin lauantaiks paikalle. Awesome.

Helsinki 78-82 crew will be performing in our bike party at F-Hoone on the 3rd of June! Full line-up and info soon.

Registration for the Red Bull Mini Drome is up

Also, you can check out http://tallinnbicycleweek.ee/

Huhujen mukaan pääkaupunkiseudulta olisi tulossa kuuden hengen delegaatio vierailulle perjantaista sunnuntaihin.

Nostan, zing!

Kuten Eiha totesi pienimuotoinen keskarigreisimeininkijengi on lähdössä edustamaan. Ottakaa yhteyttä, jos olette tulossa paikan päälle ja haluatte liittyä joukkoon.

We had a small miscommunication here and it turns out that we could offer free tickets on Viking line for Tallinn Bicycle Week guest. Not just free bikes, but person + bikes. (bike is a must).

I know it’s a late minute now, but if there is someone who wants it, then let me know ASAP. I could still add some persons tomorrow morning. I’d need names and date of births.

let me know @ risto@tallinnbicycleweek.ee or +372 5245106
