The Ultimate How-To Guide, History Of & Wild Adventures Stories About Bikerafting
By Lizzy Scully & Steve “Doom” Fassbinder & a Foreword by Roman Dial
This community multi-media storytelling project will ultimately result in a comprehensive book on bikerafting. But, along the way we’ll share some of the book’s chapters, audio interviews through our new The Bikeraft Guide Podcast, and short films in the The Bikeraft Guide enewsletter, on the IndieGoGo Campaign page, on @TheBikeraftGuide Instagram page and on the Four Corners Guides blog.
We raised sufficient funds to print, distribute (end of May 2021), edit and pay contributors through our IndieGoGo Campaign and the generous sponsors listed below. Thanks in large part to you – aspiring bikerafters and people who love great adventure stories – this dream is becoming a reality. Want to get a taste of the book?
