      Hi Kim!

      Thanks for your comment about the post card, we've sent out most, some did not arrive and still sending some more. Contacting you through the private route now to get your address.

      We are hard at work with the book and have enjoyed all the trips and people we've met so far tremendously. The fact that it has gone so well has probably lead us to do much more portraits than we originally thought we would do - giving us quite a challenge in selecting content for the book. There are probably only two more big trips and a few small in between ones left for us and we will be working on the design of the book in the next two months. We hope to launch the last kickstarter phase soon and have the book out by September.

      Thanks for the check in!
      Keep Pedalling

      HI there guys.
      I just realised i didn't receive my postcard when i did my $50 pledge. Not that it matters but I am curious.
      But more important - i was wondering when the book will be launched.

      It seems closed - how can one still back if there are 0 seconds to go? Or has this boat sailed?
      Well done guys.
