He's done it again! Gonzo filmmaker and cycling wild man Scott Coady has just finished Cobbles Baby! which chronicles his non stop, over the top adventures at Paris-Roubaix, the bicycle race usually called The Hell of the North. The world premiere of Cobbles Baby! will be November 16-21 at some of the most fabulous theaters in northern California including the Art Deco masterpiece Grand Lake Theatre and the utterly charming Orinda Theatre. Check out all the details below.

Coady's first film The Tour Baby! was a breakout success earning cult status among cyclists around the world. Cobbles Baby! chronicles Scott Coady's adventures to get up close and personal to the hardest one-day bike race on the planet. Along the way he has full access to American strongman George Hincapie and the U.S. Postal Service cycling team. Coady's trademark "dumb luck" strikes again when he finds himself drinking in a pub with commentators Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwin. The scene gets even wilder when Irish cycle racing legend Sean Kelly wanders in for a pint. Not to be missed.

Pez Cycling News said the film put viewers "right in the middle of the action...I could easily imagine standing on a dirt path along one of the famed cobbled sections, and I think I actually smelled the dirt!"

Filmmaker Scott Coady will attend each and every screening, and furthermore will sign his DVDs (which will be on sale), chat with the audience and answer all your questions. Also, there will be a raffle each night of valuable stuff from Fox Racing, Mountain Hardwear, Clif Bar, and CamelBak.

If that's not enough to get your butt into a seat, check this out: all the proceeds from this six night movie extravaganza will be shared by two fabulous organizations. The NorCal High School Mountain Bike Racing League (yeah! get those youngsters on the single track trails). Check them out at http://www.norcalmtb.org/events/cobbles/index.htm And the Davis Phinney Foundation to improve the lives of people living with Parkinson's disease. By the way, among those people is the former Tour de France competitor Davis Phinney himself. http://www.davisphinneyfoundation.org/

Six theaters over six nights, so get your ticket now now now. This event is sure to sell out just like all of Scott's previous movies. Scott will see you there! For all the news on Scott and his latest crazed adventures check out http://www.bigringfilms.com/
