So my friend Katie is running this awesome event in the US (you’ll be able to read about it in the new next issue of Spoke). It’s called Clips of Faith and is essentially a DIY bicycling film festival presented by New Belgium Brewery (and supported by Easton and Santa Cruz among others). The concept is simple: make short, awesome films with cycling as the theme, then travel round the country with a portable outdoor screen and show them whilst drinking handmade beer. The whole thing is to raise money for Project Bicycle Trip, a not for profit organisation designed to teach kids in need an employable skill (that being a bike mechanic). You can read all about it over here on the Project Bike Trip website, and while you’re there you can also choose to donate $5 and go in the draw to win this fully tricked out Carbon Santa Cruz Blur TRc. I’m pretty sure they may ship it to New Zealand. Hell even if they didn’t it would be under $500 to ship and that would be one cheap bike considering its spec.
