How being a MAMIL saved a cyclist's life
MONDAY 19 FEBRUARY 2018 | 7.30 rEPORT
On weekends right across Australia you might spot a group of lycra-clad men speeding around on their bicycles – they’re called MAMILs, Middle Aged Men in Lycra. A new Australian documentary explores the world of the MAMIL.
An idea to make a film about about cycling enthusiasts around the world turned up a larger story about the camaraderie and mental health benefits for blokes riding together in groups. Film maker Nick Bird reveals the secret life of middle-aged men in lycra in his documentary MAMIL and Justin Lang explains how riding with the "Fat Boys" cycling club in his home town of Adelaide literally saved his life.
How MAMILs are helping change the face of men's mental health
THURSDAY 25 JANUARY 2018 | nine.com.au
Just over six years ago Justin Lang woke up each morning not knowing whether he’d make it through the day. The 46-year-old had just come out of a relationship breakdown he described as “devastating” and in that darkness found himself pondering suicide on a daily basis. "For around three months every day I would have thoughts about how I would end it," Lang told nine.com.au. "I had so much, I've got two beautiful daughters, but at that time I just couldn't pull myself out of that really turbulent emotional state. "The only thing I was looking forward to was a big bike ride … and after that I really didn’t expect myself to be around."
MAMIL documentary reviewed: ‘We know we look bloody stupid’
WEDNESDAY 22 NOVEMBER 2017 | Canadian cycling magazine
What fascinates men of a certain age to pick up a bike? That’s the question explored in a documentary called MAMIL coming to Canada on Nov. 30. Featuring commentary from cyclists in England, Australia, the United States, Europe and footage from the Vuelta a España, the documentary considers the connecting tissue between cyclists and cycling’s growth throughout the past few decades. Modernity, it suggests, has stripped away elements of masculinity, for which cycling is apparently a good substitute. The competitiveness, the physical struggle, the seductiveness of the tech—packaged together—these create an industry grossing $6 billion in global sales thanks to an increasingly obsessed cohort of middle-age men. But why?
New movie celebrates the love between man and bike
TUESDAY 24 OCTOBER 2017 | sportive.com
Stuck for a date movie? MAMIL is a new cycling film celebrating the middle-aged man in lycra, now available for screenings in the UK and Ireland.
MAMIL is a feature-length documentary billed as "an enjoyable and sometimes hilarious romp through the secret world of men and masculinity". Think rom-KOM, rather than rom-com... but if the film's trailer is anything to go by, it's a must-see for anyone who spends weekends, as the film-makers put it, "flying down the road in a cacophany of garish lycra and expensive carbon frames and wheels.
Adelaide Film Festival set to host the world premiere of MAMIL
Tuesday 29 August 2017 | adelaide film festival
Middle Aged Men In Lycra! At last, the love that can finally be shared – that of man for bike. We’ve shaved our legs and we’re here to stay! Deal with us, the Adelaide Fat Boys, as we sweep down hills on our bikes, stopping for nothing (except maybe a macchiato). From the makers of Remembering the Man, here’s a survey of the state of blokes on bikes across three continents. You might be queer in New York, you might be Christian in the midwest, you might be a lawyer or a cancer survivor, you might be hauling your middle-aged belly up the Col de Tourmalet or just popping down to the shops, you might be on a top-line Trek or a heap of junk, you might be wondering how you’re going to explain all of this to your missus, but you still thrill to the moving meditation of the bike.
