Are you kidding me?
Nope – and you should definitely sign up to this creative initiative to get some sweet WordPress-sponsored gear when you head out on your daily ride. The Project WP Cycle is completely legit as they are looking to get official backing by the WordPress Foundation for their poetry in motion initiative (clever).
As someone who does cycle on occasion (I started mid last year) I wouldn’t mind this at all. The costs are looking to be around $48 if they can get the momentum around it:
A fondness for speedy, efficient, lightweight systems, with the freedom to head off in any direction… it’s easy to see why so many WordPress developers are also drawn to cycling.
But who exactly wants to hit the road dressed up like an advertising billboard? It’s not as if the kit manufacturers or pro team sponsors are paying you to do it; in fact, you’re paying them for the privilege!
I’d much rather be spreading the word about something I actually believe in, when I’m out riding. Which is why I had the idea to commission a WordPress cycling kit.
If you’re seriously interested then all you have to do is comment on the site so that Simon Dickson can gauge interest. I’m already there!
Killer idea and I hope this gets off the ground in a really neat way!
