About Cycling around the planet

Hi there and thank you for your interest in supporting my "Cycling around the Planet" video project!

Who are you supporting
My name is Niels Jansen, a 25-year old guy from a tiny village in the Netherlands. I am just an ordinary guy riding a bicycle. When I went on my first bicycle tour through the Balkan countries, I decide to film my adventures. At first, to show my family what it is like to travel with a bicycle. Later, I published them on Youtube and found out that many people appreciate watching them. 

What is my plan?
In March 2020 I went on the journey of my dreams. Despite the many travel restrictions in response to the spreading COVID virus, I managed to cycle more than 18,000 kilometers through Europe. I went all the way up to North Cape and continued south from there, through Eastern Europe and Turkey.

From Turkey, my plan is to cycle along the east coast of Africa to Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. From there, I will continue along the west coast of Africa all the way back to Europe, to complete a giant loop around the European and African continents.

Why I need your help and why should you join?
For the last year I have been able to travel from the money I saved from working. Although I can still go on for a while, my budget is slowly running out, and I won't be able to complete this giant loop around Africa without the support of others like you. With your support I will be able to keep on cycling longer, take a break more often to edit videos and update my blog, and I might even be able to upgrade my video equipment.

Filming and editing the videos takes a lot of time, effort and dedication. I love doing what I do and it means a lot to me when other people appreciate the content that I make. With your support I can keep on cycling and creating videos.

Patreon is a great platform for video creators like me to be supported directly my fans and followers like you. All my videos will always be available on Youtube for free. I do not get any money from Youtube advertisements but I love the idea of being sponsored directly by the people who care most about what I do; people like you.

What you get in return for your support
Depending on the tier you choose, you will get the following benefits:

Tier 1: €3,00 
- Early access to all my new videos (1 week before non-patreons)

Tier 2: €5,00

Tier 3: €10,00

Tier 4: €25,00

Join me on this ambitious pursuit!
Thank you for considering to support me on Patreon and perhaps I will see you on the road!
