'Push to Pedal' provides a behind the scenes look at the story of four skaters, turned-bike-builders who crafted custom frames specially for the Carhartt WIP skaters. The group then hit the road together in Fuerteventura/ Canary Islands for a week long adventure of cycling, skating and exploration.
The Bicycle Film Festival started life back in 2001 as a platform to celebrate the bicycle through the medium of music, art and film. Thiirteen years later, Carhartt WIP are proud to be a part of the major catalyst for the urban bike movement, one of the most powerful and culturally relevant forces of the last decade.
'Push To Pedal' will be shown at Bicycle Film Festival from 25th-29th June with Joe Gavin, Ted James, Timo Hypponen and Bertrand Trichet all making the trip.
