“Bicycle The Film” – the Two Wheeled Story

Bicycle - the film

Bicycle’ tells the story of cycling in the land that invented the modern bicycle, it’s birth, decline and re birth from Victorian origins to today. Bicycle will be made to coincide with another big year for British sport – the 2014 Commonwealth games in Glasgow and the coming of the Tour de France to Yorkshire. Featuring the finest components from archive to contributors and live action from cycling culture now, “Bicycle” will be a humorous, lyrical and a warm reflection on cycling and its place in the national psyche.

Other sponsors for the documentary include Trek, Madison and the Bicycle Association.

The film is being produced by award-winning documentary makers Blue Hippo Media, which has raised 90 percent of the funding, some of it through crowd-funding.

“The bicycle has been central in my life even to the point where now i have my own brand of bikes . I am excited to see a documentary being made about the bicycle’s history and impact in Britain. ”

The core strands to the film will be design, sport and transport in the hope that the documentary covers all strands of bikes and cycling with the bicycle as the hero of the film.

” British Cycling are delighted to be supporting what will be a definitive film about the history and impact of the bicycle in Britain. British Cycling have played a significant role in this history and as such welcome the “Bicycle” film from the award winning filmmakers who are also keen cyclist’s. We would encourage all cyclists to see for themselves what the film currently in production is all about. “
