Many of you will have seen the first two Thereabouts films where and pro-cyclist brothers Lachlan & Gus Morton go against the grain of training camps, intervals and powermeters, and rediscover their love for the bike and the adventure it brings. 

In collaboration with CyclingTips.com, we are creating Thereabouts 3 and have travelled to Colombia to see the country through the Morton brother's eyes, and to discover what makes this country such a special place for breeding some of the world's best cyclists.

The first two Thereabouts films were a huge success and were done off the backs of industry favours from friends. Each took months of work to pull together and while they were rough around the edges, that was part of their charm. We want to keep that charm, however filming and post-production is hard work, and a time consuming costly investment. People need to be paid for their services to bring these films to life, and that's why we're calling on you.

Scott Bikes has donated the funds to cover part of the filming and we are calling on your generosity and backing to finish the rest of the film.

We hope you come along for the journey.

Risks and challenges

The risk is that we won't have sufficient funds to properly finish post-production and make the film we envision in a timely manner.
