There are a multitude of ways to get financial support for biking around the world. One of those ways you may know of already: selling postcards, of course!

Another possible way? Partner with a company like Blackburn Design.

@cyclehumanity just applied to #beablackburnranger2017. This could be me! Hi @blackburndesign!

Blackburn Design is an outdoor adventure company that makes parts like pumps, trainers, tools, cages and racks. Every year, they run the Blackburn Ranger program to put a few lucky cyclists on routes around the world. This year, the routes are in Europe. I'm applying, because honestly, I'm biking across Europe and blogging about it whether they like it or not! And below is my application video. Wish me luck!


  1. This is absolutely amazing!!! Wow!!!

  2. I knew about some of your biking exploits, but I had no idea you had so much of this teaching in your past! You seem like an ideal candidate, so I'm confident that you'll get selected :)

    1. Thanks Brian! I am new to Instagram so they might nick me there, but as long as they are flexible about where my experience in sharing enthusiasm for cycling culture is, I think it's a perfect fit. So, we'll see. :)
