owlaps is creating an immersive way to explore mtb trail networks

The owlaps mission is to "video-map" the whole MTB trail network worldwide.

In a way, owlaps goal is to become the "Google Streetview" of the mountain bike trails! This means we film each bike trail we ride, from top to bottom.

Ok! Sounds cool! Tell me more!
This way we give you the opportunity to appreciate and discover trails, local spots and bike parks in a totally immersive experience. It helps you plan your next ride, your next bike trip or next race!
Because we film all trails (and not only the best) owlaps videos would answer your questions: Is the spot/ bike park/ trail worth the drive? How trails are in a specific place? Is this trail or spot adapted to your riding skills?

But wait, what is Patreon actually?
Patreon enables fans to support creators and projects they love and want to see growing. You can choose from different support levels and get rewards for it! Obviously, it is not mandatory and you can unsubscribe at any time! But remember. Every little helps! :)

Ok, I see. And how owlaps delivers videos? 
- We post all our trail preview on our Youtube Channel
- BUT we also gather all trails on owlaps.com, where you would find more trail info, film setup, bike setup, rider profiles... AND an mtb trail map! 

Woah! Nice guys! But, how do you manage it?!
Ok, I (Vincent), 25, will tell you a little story first. I had this crazy idea for a long time. For many years, I was riding the same spot, almost the same trails every weekend because I was scared to go explore other places and be disappointed...
If you only have weekends to ride, then it sucks to go explore a place and discover after 2h drive how it sucks! haha. So, sometimes I tried to find info on this internet! Where it's easy to find GPS data, written trail descriptions or other useless statistics... But guys, we don't ride stats or a .gpx file, I wanted to see the trails, "pre-ride" them!
Oh yeah ok... after having seen 5 different shitty videos on Youtube (bad quality, bad framing...), I was sometimes able to find one video! But most of the time showing only the best part of the trail... which can quickly leads to a total disillusion once you're riding the trail for real...

So I left the job I had in the sports industry to start the owlaps project: 1 trail = 1 HD trail preview, from top to bottom. I started by myself, trying to go from a spot to another, riding and filming each trail. Pretty cool! but pretty optimistic... ;) I needed help! 

Today we are a team of a few passionate and motivated lads we called owlaps ambassadors riding and video-mapping trail networks! Ambassadors provide videos <-> owlaps give them access to pro deal with partners. And this way we record the mtb trail world!

Sweet! Sounds like a great adventure and I'm looking forward to preview some trails now! How could I help?
Yeah! I ride, we ride, viewers and riders appreciate the work owlaps do, and that's awesome! But without any financial resources, we won't be able to stand like this for a long time.
So guys, if you read this whole text, thank you. It already means you're interested in this project and that's a lot for us! But if you really want to support us and help us continue the work we're doing, then we would much appreciate that you become a patron! :)

We release about 3 trail videos a week, if you consider supporting the project with 2$ a month, it's like 0,16¢ a video! Worth it!

Thanks a lot guys!
