Another Bike Book Coming from Carlton Reid about Cycling after the 60’s. A follow up to Roads Were Not Built for Cars


First two stretch goals added

Thanks to 206 backers – as of this second on 27th Feb – my project is £897 over the funding target. This means I am now locked in to researching and writing Bike Boom. However, the campaign is still live and there’s another 17 days available for people to bag rewards. With more funds I can add more stuff – such as new features for the digital versions of the book. But I’m going to start with doubling the pagination of the colour plate section.That is, if I reach £10,000. This, in Kickstarter parlance, is a STRETCH GOAL.Such goals add value for both the existing pledgers and those thinking of jumping on in.If I reach £15,000 in pledges I’ll produce a poster, for all except the first two levels, featuring a huge number of people on bicycles with a headline calling for more cycling facilities to be provided in order to cater for the growing demand.

If you have other ideas for possible stretch goals please let me know.
