About this project

Everyday Bikers is a show about ordinary people who ride motorcycles to work, to school, and just for fun. Especially for fun. And it's definitely not about stereotypical bad-guy bikers. In our case, most of us have never ridden before, but we're determined to ride all the way around the country, over 12,000 miles, visiting many of the most interesting places in America. You can watch us from the very first time we get on a motorcycle and learn to ride, and follow up as we plan all the logistics required for a 2 month ride. 

We've got a cast, and we've got motorcycles. We've got a crew, and we've got some equipment. We've got a lot of great stories to tell and great places to visit. 

But we can't do something this dangerous without plenty of insurance, and insurance is astronomical! Seems to have something to do with the "dangerous" part. So, help us out and we'll be able to afford to ride and shoot for more days, and maybe rent some equipment that's better than what we own. 

Your help means we can make our pilot episode better than we can without you, and the better the pilot is, the better our chances of getting picked up by a major network.

You can also help by signing up as a fan at EverydayBikers.com and spreading the word. The more fans we get signing up, the stronger the case we can make to the networks!

Thanks!!!

Miranda, Chris, Dean, Chad, John B, Promise, Robin, John L, Joe, Lori, JoAnn, Sandra, Seth, Joel, and Rebecca

P.S. And yes, we paid for the stock images and soundtracks in our pictures and on our website!
