Personal Contact and access to new videos before the wider public
per month
By supporting me with just $ 3.00 (£ 2.00) a month, I will add you mobile number or Facebook account to the closed WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger groups (you choose which one or both).

That way we can all exchange messages away from the wider public, not only among each other, but also with all other EyeCycled Patrons, have fun and get to know each other better.

You will be able to ask me questions you wouldn't otherwise like the entire world to see and also ask for recommendations, tips or new articles, blog posts or videos.

In addition to this you will get to see any new videos ahead of the wider public, as soon as they are published, instead of having to wait for the blog post to be complete. I usually upload videos as private as I finish editing them, and set them public once the blog post and any other relevant videos are also complete. In most cases this can take a couple of weeks. I have changed this and now I set the videos as "Unlisted" in YouTube, so they don't show up in the channel, but can be accessed if you have the direct link to them, which I will provide to the members of the closed groups as part of your reward.

EyeCycled.com is a proud supporter of cycling as form of transportation, either as a daily commute or as an alternative form of tourism / exploration (cycle-touring). A cyclist is not only one less car on the roads, but also a person who has a better chance to live better and longer.

How can I ever thank you enough?

Back in 2013 I was overweight, with high levels of cholesterol and hence not in the best of health. First came walking, then cycling. I used to cycle to Uni when I was young and really enjoyed it. To my surprise, that enjoyment only grew when I rediscovered the bicycle.
In 2014 I rode from my home town of Bracknell in the UK to Paris on a 3-day cycling trip. I collected more than USD 2,000 in donations for Cancer Research, but most importantly, I loved it!
In 2015 I was inspired to do something by bicycle: the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in Spain which is traditionally an adventure on foot. Just before going on that trip I set up EyeCycled.com initially with the aim of just trying something new and being able to share the upcoming experience with others.
Since then I have undertaken many more bike rides and as far as spare time allows I do share them through EyeCycled.com. I never imagined how much work maintaining a blog and creating content for it would entail... not to mention the cost of hosting the blog and keeping the domain active. This is just some of the factors for which your contributions will be welcomed for.
With your funds I endeavour to improve upon the videos, the posts, making sure they are informative, useful and fun to read and watch. Your funds will enable the acquisition of updated equipment and software whereas I will invest further time and effort into learning to use these tools. I find a lot more of my work goes into creating the content than it takes to ride the long distances.
Thank you for your support. It keeps me going during the long nights in front of the computer and gives me the feeling I am doing something useful.
If you have any suggestions towards future bike trips you’d like me to cover, please let me know.
$7 of $500 per month
When I reach $500 or £350 in a month, I will select one Patron suggestion for a cycling micro-adventure the month after. A micro-adventure may be defined by a short trip (1 day or 2) to explore a new place, meet new people and experience new things. Due to the short time frame, these adventures are, generally speaking, close to home, which is, in my case the town of Bracknell in the county of Berkshire, England (The Queen's Castle - Windsor castle - is just 15 miles from me). Will try to go places or do cycling trips my patrons wish they could do themselves, but have not done yet, and will tell them about my experiences, in writing and video, so that if they go, they will know what to expect (what to do, what not to do, what to see, eat, etc).
In addition to the content, you'll have my eternal gratitude and my support in case you want to try the micro-adventure for yourself one day.
