Kickstarter campaign goes live
Please support my book’s Kickstarter campaign: it’s just gone live. Click on the video I’ve recorded to see why I’m riding an 1894 bicycle around an office full of bemused architects.
You’ve previously expressed an interest in hearing news about the progress of Roads Were Not Built For Cars. To help get it published I’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign. Kickstarter.com is a community crowd-funding website where folks can pledge cold hard cash to get rewards in return. I’m offering many rewards, with the main ones being limited edition copies of the book, available in August. There will also be an interactive iPad version of the book.
The FREE version of the book will be available in September as a PDF. It won’t contain the lavish illustrations contained in the Kickstarter editions but will be available to all so that the book’s core message – that cyclists should be put back into highway history as pioneers of road improvement – is spread far and wide.
Funding for my Kickstarter campaign starts at just £1.00 ($1.66); with the print book being available for £21 and the iPad version for £18. There are lots of other combination deals and backer-only specials, including invites to the book launch parties, one of which is a ride to a historic cycling location. On an 1890s bicycle, in period costume. Well, that’s just me but others are welcome to don their tweeds, too.
Thanks for your support.
