“Bicycle” is a 90 minute documentary which has it’s Public World Premiere at the Yorkshire Festival of Cycling on Friday 4th July ahead of the ceremonial start of the Tour de France with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry in attendance.
Clifford, himself a keen cyclist, made the film in order to explore the question “why is cycling and the bicycle back in fasion?”
“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. The film weaves bicycle design, sport and transport through the retelling of some iconic stories and features interviews with notable contributors: Sir Dave Brailsford, Gary Fisher, Chris Boardman, Ned Boulting, Sir Chris Hoy, Tracy Moseley, Mike Burrows and many more plus great archive, animation and music.
“At a time when the bicycle is back in fashion, it is great to see a film about this beautiful machine coming out,” said Chris Boardman, MBE Olympic Gold Medalist.
The film will be on limited cinema release throughout the summer and autumn and will come out on DVD in September. In the meantime, you can check out the trailer here:
