Film Premiere - Eastbound with Jenny Graham presented by Shand Cycles

We're delighted to host the World Film Premiere of 'Eastbound'

'Eastbound' follows the incredible endurance cyclist Jenny Graham on her round-the-world by bike record trip, including a Q&A with Jenny.

About Jenny Graham

Jenny is a 37-year-old endurance cyclist from the Scottish Highlands.

As a young mum she came late to long-distance cycling. But a lifetime teaching others in outdoor environments prepared her well for the resilience, self-reliance and physical hardship that these challenges entail.

In 2015 she raced The Highland Trail 550 for the first time, and realised that life would never be the same again. She spent the next three years developing her considerable aptitude in long-distance self-supported bike racing, completing challenges such as the Cairngorm Loop, the Arizona Trail Race and a four-day winter LEJOG. She soon found herself asking the question: 

"Yeah, but I wonder how far I could actually go…"

In 2018 she found out when she broke the current women’s record by more than two weeks. Jenny rode more than 18,000 miles fully self supported in just under 124 days!
