The bicycle asks why is cycling and the bicycle are back in fashion. Directed by BAFTA winning director and keen cyclist Michael B.Clifford, the documentary tells the story of cycling in the land that invented the modern bicycle; its 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 more. A humorous, lyrical and warm reflection on the bicycle and cycling and its place in the British national psyche.

'Engaging pedal through British cycling from its origins to the current popularity of figureheads such as Sir Chris Hoy, with contributions from bike designers, historians and sports stars.' - Siobhan Synnot, The Scotsman
