Video: Ripcor the Movie – Riding With Mamils

Tickets available for ‘world premiere’ with proceeds going to charity

In the words of the trailer: “It’s a challenge, it’s adventure, it’s joy,” and for each of its stars it’s also about “continually being reminded that you’re a bit of a knob yourself.” This is Ripcor the Movie – Riding With Mamils, a documentary about a cycling club which has raised over £500,000 for charity.

Ripcor was formed in 2006 by Treve Ripley and Sean Cornell (Rip and Cor, respectively) as a means of having fun, getting fit and raising money for good causes. The team now has over 20 members and together they have cycled over 27,000 miles and raised £500,000 for the PACE Centre, a school in Aylesbury for children affected by cerebral palsy.

Now they are starring in their own documentary: Ripcor the Movie – Riding With Mamils.

Ripcor the Movie is described as being a celebration of the unique culture of the club, which is “exclusively for lovers of beer, cake and cycling who share a serious ability to laugh at each other and more importantly themselves.”

It was produced by Let’s Talk Films and follows Ripcor members on a training camp in the Alps earlier this summer. This was preparation for their latest charity ride, a five-day, 400-mile trip from Lisbon to the Douro Valley in Portugal last month through which they raised £60,000 for PACE.

The film gets what is being billed as its “world premiere” at the Prince Charles Cinema in Leicester Square, London, on Saturday 1 November. Tickets cost £15 and £5 for kids with all profits going to PACE. They are available from tripley@turnbullripley.co.uk. Or, if you want, you can donate directly to the PACE Centre here.

Alex has written for more cricket publications than the rest of the road.cc team combined. Despite the apparent evidence of this picture, he doesn't especially like cake.
