Cycle me home

Cycle me home

A documentary/road movie project founded by friends and bike lovers in 2011. From a crazy idea of riding from Madrid to Budapest on a fixed gear bike to building an international cycling community and a filmmaker team that has only one goal in life: show the world that there are lots of ways to have fun in life and riding a bike is definitely one of them.

Cycle me home is a documentary/road movie project founded by filmmakers and bike lovers in 2011. It all started with an idea of a Hungarian exchange student in Madrid who decided to ride back home to Budapest on his fixed gear bike after finishing his semester in the Spanish capital.

The idea inspired a big group of friends and all of a sudden the whole project turned out to be much more than a simple cycling holiday. Starting with a 38 days long Madrid-Budapest trip, the brand and the team behind it was born and have been pedaling and filming ever since.

After a huge premiere party in Budapest, lots of positive feedback and winning the Charmalagne Youth Prize 2012, the team decided to continue what we started and go on other trips by bike. Organizing screenings of the first movie, attending races and cycling related events became our main profile – of course, originally being filmmakers, we never forget to turn on our cameras. Being on the road for a year now – working as a courier at home or riding somewhere in Europe, the CMH became a movement and also something that proves that cycling really connects people. Everyone we met during our trips – people who joined us, people who hosted us or even just people who we had a beer with – can relate a unique experience to the \”CMH lifestyle\” that we are trying to spread.

Just get on your bike, choose your destination and go, you can be sure you will experience something you never had before. Go alone and challenge yourself, go with strangers and arrive as friends or go with friends and arrive as a team – you can only win. This is our motto and this is our method of filming as well. Just turn on the camera and let things happen – you can be sure there will be something interesting. We believe that life gives you the best stories, you just need to be open to see them – but one thing is sure: whatever you are looking for, it\’s OUT THERE. So go and find it!

That is the magical thing we are seeking.

Join us and spread the word!
