Today I’m off to the big smoke with Dan ( to meet with Keo Films, the people behind a brand new Crowd Funding platform called . Keo is the production company responsible for all the Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall programs and campaigns, along with some very well known documentaries and Films such as Banksy’s Exit Through The Gift Shop so are very well regarded and have a wealth of experience with connecting people online. is a new platform that connects people who have an innovative idea to make the world a bit (or a lot) better, with people who want to support it with their spare cash, time and skills…

The idea is simple, Projects on will be looking to create innovative solutions, in one (or more) of these areas: • Food •Energy • Environment • Community • Recreation • Health

People will be able to support projects with their spare cash and time, in return for rewards.

We’re excited to say that The Bicycle Academy has been shortlisted to be a part of the launch campaign for this exciting new crowd funding platform. Within a couple of weeks we’ll know for sure whether or not we’ve been successful, so cross your fingers and perhaps a couple of toes too.

As soon as we know more I’ll let you know, but all going well the campaign will begin on the 24th October and we’ll be along for the ride.
