Fwd: Bike Boom Kickstarter goes live

Roads Were Not Built For Cars email banner

Sequel to Roads Were Not Built For Cars goes live on

I've just gone public with the crowdfunding campaign for Bike Boom, the follow-up to Roads Were Not Built For Cars. I'm pretty nervous – it's a very public way of getting, or not getting, support for a project. 

The project can be accessed at There are plenty of pledge levels, from £1 to, er, £1,095, and every penny will go towards making Bike Boom as good a read and as popular as my first history book.

There's even a video on the Kickstarter page. I make two very brief appearances. I'm happier behind the lens.

I appreciate the support I get from Kickstarter backers. They'll get rewards, such as first edition books, but they're also plugged in to the backer-only emails that will chart the progress of the book. As I say on the Kickstarter page, backers are along for the ride. And on that note, I'll get on my bike and go buy a sarnie for lunch.
