Woman Up (3 mins)

“Imagine standing on a stage naked under a spotlight”: that’s how Eilidh describes the feeling she used to have of doing sport in front of others – a feeling she has gone to great lengths to deal with and to discover her passion and talent for mountain biking. A moving account of one woman’s courageous journey from confirmed ‘non-sporty girl’ to outdoor adventure-lover.

Riding Through the Dark (17 mins)

In Riding Though the Dark we meet the elite athletes of the Adventure Syndicate and participants of Velocity’s Cycle to Health programme. Their cycling achievements are poles apart but they go through the same highs and low of mental wellbeing and explore how bikes help them live their lives to their full potential.

Time Trial (92 mins)

Time Trial gives us an exhilarating and terrifying place in the race, providing an immersive experience as close to actually competing as you will ever see on film. David Millar, shrouded in darkness, declares an intention to rise again. A sensory ride through the thrill and hardship of professional cycling. We are hurtled off a hillside, details blurring like watercolours. The euphoria and the fatigue, the highs and the lows. It’s as if it were ourselves struggling through the bumpy roads of France. David bluntly and fearlessly narrates his last season in the saddle, intimate and immediate, along with the intricate relationships of cyclist, road crew, fellow competitors, manic fans, and the media circus surrounding it all.
