The chaps at Pannier and Brother Cycles spent some time cycling across the Scottish Highlands earlier this year and the result was this film: Rainspotting. It was originally due to be shown at various venues around the UK so as this is no longer possible they've gone for a Watch Party instead. Not sure what one of those is? Read on to find out everything you need to know...


RAINSPOTTING - Film Release

An 84-hour bikepacking ramble through Scotland’s gloomy Grampians…

In light of all their film screening & talk cancellations, Pannier.cc & Brother Cycles are to release their new bikepacking film - Rainspotting - via “Watch Party” at 19.30GMT Wednesday 25th March 2020.

 And, they'd like as many of you to join as possible...

Watch party [n.]
When folk ‘get together’ to watch the same video/film online, in real-time. Nope, we’d never heard of one until now, either…


Calling all outsiders, cyclists, bikepackers, tourers and armchair adventurers. Fill up your favourite enamel mug and head to the Scottish Highlands for 17-minutes of escapism - following a group of cyclists as they head off on an opportunistic wintry journey to ride the old-established network of gravel drove roads, only to find themselves bogged-down exploring the alluring voids in between. Expect sleeper trains, rain, snow, magical munro-mountains, gravel, cullen skinks, cranachans, bogs, bridges, and la-di-dah land-owners...Comments (and heckles) welcomed.

The film will be released on the 25th of March at 19:30. Grab yourself a drink and snack (preferably from Tunnocks) and watch the film here:
