Every Mon (7:30 pm),
Metro Cinema

“A Sunday in Hell” is the first feature movie. Monday June 2nd at 730pm. 

Come to see Barb’s Bike Shorts, win door prizes and see a stunning racing movie

 

‘A Sunday In Hell’ is probably the finest
cycling film ever made. It’s over one hundred 
minutes of finely-calculated suspense that leaves the viewer limp 
from vicarious pain and excitement. Once a year the Paris-Roubaix road 
race taxes the energy of Europe’s best riders, Eddy Merckx, De 
Vlaminick, Franceco Moser, Freddy Maertens etc. 

(Editors note: Apparently i have to come do a brief intro before the film. Come watch me fear public speaking and stutter a whole ton)
