In early May we put up a post on a cool project focused on investigating bicycle culture in South Africa. Bicycle Portraits is a project where the authors/photographers catalog cyclists they meet as they ride around South Africa. The result they are hoping for is a book they can share with the world. But to get there they do need pledges of support.
The site they are using to promote the book (KickStarter) invites interested individuals to participate in getting the project off the ground. There are different awards and incentives and Stan asked if Bike Hacks might be interested in helping to promote their cause so they can meet their financial goal. We certainly support those interested in promoting bike culture so we give you the following.
If any Bike Hacks readers wish to support the project by pre-ordering the book, there is the chance to score a 10" x 12" photographic print of the donor/winner's choice. What do I mean by winner? Interested readers should do the following:
1. Pre-order the book on their site.
2. Submit a picture of your bike (you can be included if you wish) in front of a landmark of your choice to Bike Hacks. Let us know you are interested by using the Submit Your Hack link.
3. We will post entries we receive on Bike Hacks for all to view.
4. Stan and Nic, the authors/photographers will then pick a winner from those who submit. The winner will choose the photo of their choice and get a 10" x 12" print, along with a post card from the road.
The project funding deadline is June 17th and thus the deadline for interested readers is also June 17th. Last time I checked they were at 54% of their goal. If you are not interested in ordering the book but still wish to support the project, visit the site for other donation opportunities.
If you love bikes and books, this is your chance to help promote both. Ride on!
