ILove Biking Film Fundraiser

Ride Illinois is hoping to partner with Anthill Films on project(s) to highlight the Illinois cycling community! To do so, we need to raise funds to support development of the film by mid-summer 2021.

If you believe in power of cycling in Illinois; how it can positively impact your passion, our people and our planet – you’ll enjoy all content created by Anthill Films.

Our goal is to secure donations with a fundraising goal of $100,000. This a lofty goal, but we’re really excited about this opportunity and know that Illinois will benefit from the exposure!

Here are some reasons that Illinois belongs in this film:

  • Ride Illinois, the nonprofit bike advocacy organization has been making Illinois better through biking since 1992. We’re excited to share this unique opportunity to spotlight our state!
  • Our cycling culture keeps growing in IL – all abilities, ages, genders and income levels have safer access to the paths, trails and roads in Illinois. With more awareness and support we can achieve greater impact!
  • Ride Illinois is working to become a top-5 state on the League of American Cyclists bike friendly state ranking by 2025. Ride Illinois is focusing on Safety, Education, Community, Health, Environment and Access to get us there. This film is fully aligned with our values.
  • Cycling brings about $144 Million annually in revenue to the state according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis U.S. Department of Commerce.
  • When out biking, cyclists support communities of all sizes. By bringing more awareness to Illinois’ cycling culture, people from many walks of life will benefit.
  • The cycling industry awaits Anthill’s feature films and we can bring worldwide attention to our efforts in Illinois.

We appreciate any interest in this unique opportunity! Please share with other companies and organizations that may want to get involved.
