Bicycle: The Film

A new feature-lemngth documentary, 'Bicycle', is set to tell the "story of cycling in the land that invented the modern bicycle, it's birth, decline and re-birth from Victorian origins to today".

The film is directed by BAFTA winner Michael Clifford (who I got to know on a film-maing course he ran at MAC in Birmingham) and award-winning producer Pip Piper and features interviews with the likes of Sir Dave Brailsford, Gary Fisher, Chris Boardman, Ned Boulting and Sir Chris Hoy.

Appropriately, the film is receiving it's world premiere in Bradford tomorrow to coincide with the  Grand Depart of the Tour de France in Yorkshire. It's then getting a limited release around the UK, details here.

I've not seen it yet, but having spoken to Michael and Pip about it and going by the trailer, it should be fantastic! I'm looking forward to seeing it in Birmingham.
