Get Paid to Bike: Kitsbow Opens Applications for ’36 Hours’ Cycling Grants

Like to cycle? Looking for a cool opportunity? Kitsbow’s new grant program has you covered.

Kitsbow just opened grant applications for its 2021 “36 Hours in Kitsbow” film series. The series highlights unique short films that “tell the story of a cycling adventure” in just a weekend.

“The goal for ‘36 Hours in Kitsbow’ has always been to show the world that anyone can have an epic experience right outside their front door,” said Kitsbow CEO David Billstrom. “This year, more than ever, we are looking for inspiration, and we are so excited to see new films from our customers and fans.”

Kitsbow started the “36 Hours in Kitsbow” grant back in 2018. The prompt is simple: Describe in detail what your 36-hour adventure will look like and why Kitsbow should help fund it.

If chosen, grant recipients will earn cash, gear, and promotion of their films. The full grant includes the following:

  • Cash: $1,200 toward film-production expenses
  • Gear: Kitsbow will provide a variety of gear to be worn in the film
  • Promo: Kitsbow will promote each of the films through the brand’s social media channels and other marketing platforms

Applications will close on March 19, 2021. Read the grant guidelines or apply here.
