Here's a guide to the movie -
MAMIL: ˈmamɪl/ (noun, informal) A middle-aged man who is a very keen road cyclist, typically one who rides an expensive bike and wears the type of clothing associated with professional cyclists.
Great news cycling fans! A new Australian-produced cycling movie is here with promises of ‘a light-hearted, yet insightful, look at the secret lives of MAMIL’s in their natural habitat’.
Yes, ubiquitous ‘Middle-Aged Men In Lycra’ are thrust front and centre stage in this 98-minute feature film that focusses on personal reflections upon why we ride.
“This is done through interviews with experts interwoven with MAMIL stories set around the world,” according to the MAMIL website.
Created by award-winning Melbourne-based filmmakers Nickolas Bird and Eleanor Sharpe, the film is narrated by cycling legend Phil Liggett. It features riders from Victoria’s Warragul Cycling Club and members of the ‘Adelaide Fat Boys’ recreational cycling group right through to passionate riders of Los Angeles, Minneapolis and New York City-based clubs.
“(Film wise) nothing has been done on the world of middle aged men in lycra,” according to the website.
