Thank you for helping us get over our target!! The Campaign is now over and we are busy planning the next phase of filming and looking at archive. If you have helped us with funding we will be in touch.

The second phase campaign is now live if you would like to support:


A film that will celebrate the bicycle!

This crowd funding campaign is an opportunity for ALL who want to see this film made, to be able to contribute and be a part of it and get some unique perks in return.

( Please watch the video above to understand more of who we are and what we are hoping to achieve.)

We have got some great sponsors involved but we really want all cyclists and bicycle lovers to feel they can contribute too. 

'I'm asking you please support this film "Bicycle". Why? We have a tremendous story to tell here, one of inspiration, one of history.  Please learn about the bicycle, please support "Bicycle".'
Gary Fisher: Legendary developer of the mountain bike.

"Bicycle" will be a feature documentary that tells the story of cycling in the land that invented the modern bicycle, its birth, decline and and re birth from Victorian origins to today.

Featuring the finest components from archive to contributors and live action from cycling culture now as well as great music, "Bicycle" will be cinematic, humorous, lyrical and a warm reflection on cycling and the bicycle and their place in the national psyche. It will weave design and transport with sport BUT our central character will be the "Bicycle"!

The film team for ‘‘Bicycle” includes Bafta winning director Michael B Clifford and international award winning film producer Pip Piper of Blue Hippo Media. Rob Penn, broadcaster and author of acclaimed "It's All About the Bike" is a creative consultant and contributor.

Blue Hippo's recent documentary “Last Shop Standing” about the UK’s independent record shops featured Paul Weller, Johnny Marr and Billy Bragg and received wide critical acclaim across the globe. We have a team that will make a fantastic film! and our ambition is to make a film worthy of the bicycle and its history which will have a lasting impact.

"Bicycle will receive its World Premiere in early July 2014 to coincide with the Tour de France cycle race Grand Depart in Yorkshire.

The film will be screened in cinemas across the UK whilst being released on DVD and Digital and Terrestrial TV. Through key media partnerships, PR and a strong social media campaign, the film will reach a very wide audience of cycle enthusiasts and beyond. The film will also travel across many borders reaching a significant audience both in the UK and internationally.

Whatever amount your support, it is really important to the success of the film!

Thank You
