Help The Byke Project raise funds to purchase this awesome little Ice Cream Truck. We will use this truck to give back to youth in the inner city. It’ll be cleaned up, restored, and outfitted with everything we need to do free bike repair in lower income areas, as well as do regular outreach to communities in need.
An average Byke Project outreach would include us showing up in the truck, pulling out the PA and tents, and setting up shop and helping kids with their busted up bikes. When we can we would give away new bikes to those that can’t afford a bike. We would do this regularly and use this to establish strong relationship with the community.
The truck runs and is solid. We would restore it slowly, paint it and outfit it as needed. The truck would become an iconic tool for the Byke Project. We could do alot in the city with this little guy.
REWARD LEVELS We have provided 4 different reward levels. Please see reward level badges for details on the GoFundme Page:
MONTHLY SPONSORSHIPS We are willing to tailer any of the levels accordingly and create custom levels as needed. We are also willing to create a monthly sponsorship that will ensure your branding presence on the truck and online indefinitely. These sponsorships can start at $250/mth and go up from there depending on how much branding you prefer.
Any donation helps. Thank you for believing in our cause. Follow us on facebook and instragram. @thebykeproject
Japanese riders take New Orleans by storm and walk away with the top three spots.
The seventh installment of the premiere flatland event in the U.S. went down this past Saturday in New Orleans. The Flatland Voodoo jam is organized by Louisiana natives Scott O’Brien and Terry Adams, and with 34 pro riders representing 11 countries; this year’s competition was no doubt the best yet.
The weekend-long celebration of friendships and BMX kicked off on Friday afternoon with the official pre-jam at a local community park where Jeremy Jones won the veteran class competition. The surrounding residents were in shock as hundreds of riders infiltrated their unsuspecting neighborhood and overtook the park for an amazing afternoon of riding and catching up with old and new friends from around the world.
Saturday’s events started off early in the morning with nearly 40 amateur riders competing for top honors. After each of the 10 finalists completed their two minute run Patrick Ras out of Czech Republic walked away victorious with the U.S.’ Steve Jordan and Todd Carter coming in second and third, respectively.
Once the pro contest began, it was an all out brawl to see who would make it into the 14-man elimination style final battles. Everyone in the pro class knew they had to throw down near-flawless runs filled with their most difficult tricks if they had any chance of cracking into the top few spots. The energy of the roaring crowd inside the packed nightclub fueled the riders as the battles ensued. One by one riders were taken out of the equation until only two riders remained. The final battle to see who would be crowned the Voodoo Jam champion pitted Tsutomu Kitayama against his fellow countryman Hiroya Morisaki in an epic fight to the finish. The fans were on their toes as the two went back and forth, pulling their most difficult links. As the final seconds on the clock counted down, pro riders were jumping around on the contest floor cheering them on as they landed their last combos. When the winner was announced, it was Tsutomu who climbed on top of the podium as Hiroya stood beside him in the second place spot and their fellow Japanese comrade Yohei Uchino took to the remaining pedestal.

What is The Byke Project?
The BYKE Project is an outreach effort by Neue Creative that works to reach out to young people through BMX and cycling. One of the major tools of the project is providing free bike repair events on the bicycles of young kids and teenagers who other wise wouldn’t be able to afford the repairs.
The Project has been going into communities in Houston and beyond since 2000. We have big ideas and big goals and we can only do this through DONATIONS and with the help of volunteers and people who have the same heart that we do.
