BIKE MINDS Story Submission Form
BIKE MINDS is a storytelling event where positive and inspiring bike-related stories are shared in front of a live audience. We're currently planning and running events in Toronto and Ottawa, and we're always looking for more storytellers! Please take the time to tell us more about you and your story using the form below.
We welcome stories from all members of the cycling community, and aim to provide space for storytellers with a diversity of backgrounds and experiences. If you are a woman, visible minority, non-cisgendered person, Indigenous person, or member of any other underrepresented group in the cycling community, you are invited to self-identify at the end of this submission form.
All stories submitted should meet these basic criteria:
- Positive: while every good story involves a challenge or struggle, the story should generally be positive and have a happy ending. Avoid discussing things like politics, collisions, bike theft, etc.
- Personal: the best stories are as personal as possible. We want to hear about what you did, rather than your organization’s objectives or your opinions.
- Bike-related: cycling does not need to be the central theme of the story, but should be involved at some point.
