I almost forgot!  Here is our new teaser.  This time featuring Sir David Brailsford.  Enjoy!

We had an AMAZING time filming at Bespoked ‘Hand built bicycle’ show in London at the weekend.  Saw some stunning bikes and interviewed some very interesting people.  Michael pictured above spoke to us about Fixed Gear London and what it’s like to cycle through the city on a Fixie.  I had my eye on this lovely flat black Nerve 953, as light as a feather.  Going to get saving! 

We are in the final week of our current crowd funding campaign.  We can’t make this film with out you guys so please help if you can.  Lots of really cool perks, you can even get to meet me and the team.

They call him the Mastermind behind the British cycling teams dominance of track cycling and more recently Tour De France victories.  Sir David Brailsford was interviewed last night at the home of British cycling- the Manchester Velodrome.  There is no doubting this mans influence of the resurgence of cycling in the UK.  Interested to hear what he has to say?  Keep up with all the news on the film at www.bicyclethefilm.com

This week the crew have been incredibly busy filming in - now officially Britain’s best city - Bristol!

Yesterday we spoke to none other than George Ferguson, The Mayor of Bristol, about his involvement in the early days of cycle campaigning, among some great insight into what’s happening for cyclists in Bristol today.

We then took a trip over to the iconic Moulton Cycles Factory, who were responsible for evolving the design of the safety bike. Here, we filmed the intricate production process of their brilliant bicycles.

We also had a chat with Melissa Henry from Sustrans about their work to keep the bicycle scene in Britain thriving, as well as speaking to David Sproxton from Aardman animations about his involvement in the early days of Cycle Bag and Sustrans.

We then spoke to Tony Hadland, cycling historian, before heading over to Roll for the Soul, which is a fantastic cafe and community cycling hub.

Today, the crew are busy filming with professional mountain bikers Tracy Mosely and Rob Warner about their amazing jobs. Exciting stuff!

Hello there!

Yesterday we filmed the living legend that is Chris Boardman.  Individual pursuit gold medalist at the 1992 Olympics games on the iconic and controversial Lotus Bike

This story is an integral part of the history behind bicycle design.  With added input from Mike Burrows, the Lotus bike designer and Richard Hill the expert in aerodynamics at lotus. This is an unmissable part of the film.  Chris is also now deeply involved in the push to get more people on bicycles in the UK and had some great statistics.  My favorite being

"More people are killed by Christmas trees than on bicycles’
