The GM crew returns in 2012 to create another incredible promo flick for the annual GRAVEL METRIC cycling event.

The Gravel Metric is a 62mi gravel bike ride in DeKalb, IL. 

Each year, we create a short promotional video to create energy and excitement about our event. This will be our third year, and the video we have planned calls for a larger budget, a larger cast, and a larger production. 

We are asking for your donations to help us create something incredible. 

Please check out our videos to see where we're coming from:

We've got some big ideas for 2012. Your donations will help us procure props, actors, licensing, and materials. We're excited to create something you'll be proud of. 

Check out our incentives and please consider making a donation. We have hand-made, custom items available for most all levels of donations, including a chance to have your name featured in our video!

Thank you so much for your support.
