The Bicycle Film Festival To Feature a Night of Films About Women & Bikes


A night of films about women and bikes is coming to Los Angeles on April 4th at the The Bicycle Film Festival!

There will be a screening of HALF THE ROAD, which explores the world of women’s professional cycling, focusing on both the love of sport and the pressing issues of inequality that modern-day female riders face in a male dominated sport. The screening opens with CALIFORNIA GIRLS, a comedy short that was created by Southern California racer Jen Whalen, with the help of her teammate Erin Lamb!

Watch the Trailers for each film below and enjoy the films in full at the The Bicycle Film Festival!
