Bicycle the film received its premiere last night at Bradford’s National Media Museum. The first public screening of the film takes place at the Festival of Cycling at Harewood House on Friday evening.
The 90-minute documentary explores the past and present of the bicycle, and was extremly well-received by the invited audience, which included those in the film as well as the editorial and production crew as well as Indiegogo backers.
Directed by BAFTA winning Michael B.Clifford, the film was made to explore the question why is cycling and the bicycle back in fashion? The film includes interviews with Sir Dave Brailsford, Gary Fisher, Chris Boardman, Ned Boulting, Sir Chris Hoy, Tracy Moseley, Mike Burrows, John Grimshaw, and features up and coming track star Dannielle Khan and her family. There’s also a great deal of archive footage and some bespoke animation.
