OK – THIS is going to be the Kickstarter project that finally gets me rich:
Strava for slow cyclists
No, really. Not everyone is interested in clocking fastest segments, or cheating their way to yet another “KoM”. No. Some people just want to pootle. But why should they be excluded from the fun?
First up, we need to tweak the criteria – it’ll no longer be about speed. We’ll have categories for…
Carrying all the stuff that comes with kids
Riding home from the pub
Cycling with children (extra points for doing it in such effortless, sweat-free style)
Instead of the “King of the mountains” polkadot jersey, we’ll just have polkadots.
(Wear them however you like.)
Wearing clothes that you’re comfortable in
Cycling with improbable luggage. The wetsuit is optional.
Flashing your knickers, or riding while wearing sandals.
Taking time over a picnic – which should ideally involve a tartan rug
We’ll add other classifications, a more rigorous scoring system and a whole lot of hype just as soon as we finish getting the app developed.
Minimum suggested investment will be £10, and this is your chance to be in at the ground floor of something big. Opportunities like this don’t come along often, and you’d be a fool to turn this one down…
