Half the Road: A Documentary about The Passion, Pitfalls & Power of Women’s Professional Cycling

I can’t tell you how excited I am about this project.

I found Kathryn Bertine’s writing about her ultimately unsuccessful campaign to make the 2012 Olympic team both poignant and riveting – a true glimpse into what drives us as athletes. This documentary is important on many levels and as the conversation about equality – in cycling and in general – escalates, I think this film will add a long overdue comprehensive look at the lay of the land.

If you agree, consider supporting the production and distribution. Bertine and Kevin Tokstad completed filming on a $10,000 budget by “surviving on meals purchased at gas stations, bedbuggy motels, and the generosity of strangers”. The funding push will help finish what passion and persistence started.
