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.
