Half the Road: The passion, Pitfalls & Power of Women’s Professional Cycling 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 inequity that modern-day female riders face in a male-dominated sport.

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 and growth.
