I Support This Kickstarter Cycling Project
Okay, so I seriously must get asked to help support a cycling related Kickstarter project at least a few times each month. Yeah, there seems to be a whole lot of cycling initiatives trying to get funded. But my response is always the same, “In order to keep things fair and consistent, we can put up a sponsored post at a cost to you”. Yep, that’s the cold-hearted truth…..I’ll only support a Kickstarter campaign with a post on this site if we are paid.
But a new Kickstarter campaign by a Chicago based indie band has sweet talked me into promoting their project for free. All it took was for me to watch their promotional video and hear these words:
We don’t want your money, we want you to go on a bike ride.
That’s right, these guys aren’t really looking for funding….they are asking for your cycling videos to be part of a very cool mix of travel, bikes, and music. Here, I’ll let them give you the exact details:
We’re an indie band from Chicago called The Papers who like to make traveling bike videos in different cities as a visual attachment to our album. Our goal is to collect videos from as many places as possible so our music can travel the world. As a final product, we’ll sync the videos to our music, and the album will be shared on our site in an interactive click-through fashion that will allow the viewer to pick and choose which cities to explore as our album plays.
So yeah, I support this campaign and have personally backed them….and encourage you to send them a cycling video from where you live as well. I’m looking forward to seeing the completed project and many of your smiling cycling faces.
