Cycling Film Worth Supporting

The appropriately titled documentary film “HALF THE ROAD: The Passion, Pitfalls & Power of Women’s Professional Cycling” explores the world of women’s professional cycling, asking why, when it comes to professional cycling, women aren’t receiving their fair share of the road. Featuring race footage and interviews with Olympians, development riders, Ironman and marathon champions, pro team directors, and more, the film offers a unique look at what makes the women’s pro peloton tick. Check out the preview video here.

The documentary’s filmmakers are seeking help with funds for distribution, screenings, film festival entries, travel, and rights to Olympic footage. Support the project on online crowd-funding platform Indiegogo by making a contribution of $25 to $10,000 dollars. ($100 gets you a pre-ordered DVD and puts your name in the film credits.) Currently, with 44 days remaining in the campaign, $17,706 has been raised of the $65,000 goal.

If you’re a supporter of women’s cycling, make it happen!
