About

This project is to generate public support for the full funding a  'contributory' £2900 publishing contract offered to Dr Marlon Moncrieffe (author) with Austin Macauley Publishers for the production of the children's book 'Black-British Champions in Cycling'

This book is a collection of inspirational oral testimonies and photographs to showcase the hidden stories of diversity, success and achievement in the sport of cycling in Britain - the grassroots to glory tales of these phenomenal athletes. On publication, this children's book will be made available to the general public for purchase in Hardback, Paperback & E-Book Edition. 

All profits made from the sales will be fed back into future iterations of the book and exhibition touring. Already, Dr Marlon Moncrieffe has provided the public with opportunity to see his academic research work on which this children's book is based through public exhibition in December 2018 in Brighton, UK. A second exhibition of this work is being presented at Herne Hill Velodrome, London, in June 2019 as part of the Big Velo Fete. 

Risks and challenges

It is hoped that the children's book will be published by Spring 2020 and that those donations with rewards attached will be able to receive their copies by this time. Dr Moncrieffe will keep all donors informed of the publishing processes via a timeline.
