Half the Road screening in Northampton, MA
Join us for a screening of Half the Road, a documentary about women’s pro cycling and the hurdles that women face in pursuing a life of competition on two wheels. We’re thrilled to be teaming up with Speed and Sprocket Works, the Northampton Cycle Club, and Smith College. This is our kick-off for the biking season as we will be shortly presenting our clinic series with Speed and Sprocket Cycle Works.
“HALF THE ROAD is a documentary film that 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. With footage from some of the world’s best UCI races to interviews with Olympians, World Champions, rookies, coaches, managers, officials, doctors and family members, HALF THE ROAD offers a unique insight to the drive, dedication, and passion it takes for a female cyclist to thrive. Both on and off the bike, the voices and advocates of women’s pro cycling take the audience on a journey of enlightenment, depth, strength, love, humor and best of all, change & growth.”
