1 year ago we launched CycleHack for the first time ever. It’s been an absolute whirlwind since – becoming a company, launching Penny in Yo’ Pants on Indiegogo, being on the TEDx stage, and welcoming a HUGE community of global partners to the CycleHack table.
The last one is pretty amazing – so amazing that sometimes I have to stop and take a moment. This weekend – starting tomorrow – cities from all over the world will be hacking together. It’s overwhelming to not only think about the attendees, but the teams who have been busy planning, preparing, and creating a space to make a difference to their local streets.
Behind the scenes Matt Lowell, Sarah Drummond and I have been chipping away. Matt moved to Vancouver and launched CycleHack Vancouver which received some great coverage recently – check it out here. We have spent many Saturday evenings (Vancouver mornings) talking about what’s next and what needs done. We have created a collective of partners, associates, and sponsors from across the cycling spectrum that are brave and willing to try something a bit different.
A huge good luck to all our global partners and their participants this weekend! I can’t wait to see all the awesome ideas and prototypes you make. You can find us at #cyclehack over the course of the weekend.
