About the film

The bicycle can enable ordinary people to do extraordinary things, like Chase The Sun - an event where people ride coast to coast, 200 miles or more in a single day, fuelled only by sandwiches, energy bars, cups of tea and good cheer.

But now, Chase The Sun has the potential to do something much more extraordinary. At a time of energy crisis, of climate catastrophe caused by energy misuse, the bicycle can take a front line position in the fight against climate change, one pedal stroke at a time.

This film follows Chase The Sun riders as they cross England, coast to coast, sunrise to sunset. As they push their limits, the team also explore how active travel is tackling climate change and bringing other benefits through congestion and pollution reduction, mental and physical wellbeing, and community joy.

The film features inspiring stories alongside contributions from broadcaster Ned Boulting, writer/blogger Jools Walker, World Champ mountain biker Tracy Moseley and legendary Turner Prize-winning artist Richard Long amongst others.

“We’ve got a once in a lifetime opportunity to revolutionise how people get around and we cannot let it slip through our fingers.” - Chris Boardman, Olympian & National Active Travel Commissioner.

This event is presented by athlete, author and advocate Emily Chappell.
