With over a billion bicycles around the world and being cyclist commuter ourselves, we thought the bike community deserved its own major NFT project.
Here comes Cycl:R, a high end object oriented NFT collection of 8088 procedural bikes, later to be used in a P2E game.
Thanks to a procedural workflow, every bike will get its own unique combination of traits, ensuring its uniqueness.
With a 8 years background in the design field, we took time to make sure every details are just like we want them to be. We prioritized quality over speed.
With a trillion of different combinations, we can guarantee all bikes will have their own character.
Cycl:R is not just another avatar project. We want our members to be able to play with the bikes, and earn rewards along the way.
Blockchain is usually associated to bad environmental issues. That's one of the reasons we decided to launch on Cardano, which has a very low energy requirement, on top of funding reforestation programs.
Despite the time put into modeling each model, we want to give everyone a chance to be part of the community. Therefore, we decided to sell each bikes for 250 ADA.
From the beginning, the idea behind the project was to create a very high end collection of NFTs. The bikes are procedurally generated, and fully 3D, but we're actually working super hard to ensure each of them has the quality stamp when it comes out of the factory. As quality is our main driver, of course it takes time. The project started at the end of the summer, and if everything goes according to the plan, we're aiming for a release by the end of October.
Faster Alone, further together.
We like to see our bikes as canvas that can be reinterpreted in every possible ways.
All over prints, exclusive designs, crazy shapes... How would your dream bike be like?
We're gonna team up with the coolest artists from the NFT sphere, but also from the design field, and give them the keys of the workshop for a few days. We can't wait to see how those custom-made bikes will turn out!
You’ve been several to ask for it already, and we heard you.
Water bottles, caps, stickers, pins... we will create an event to reward token holders from the community and make our members feel even more part of the Cycl:R’s family.
One bike is cool, but with a biker it's even cooler!
We secretely worked on a PFP series that will be airdropped to our token holders exclusively. You can't buy the Rid:Rz, you can only get them from the airdrop. Oh, and you should also know that the Rid:R PFP will match your bike!
To get one is pretty simple, you only need to own a bike or more on your wallet the day we release the PFPs.
Because a bike can really change someone's life, we will make a donation to worldbicyclerelief.org. They provide "Buffalo Bicycle" to people in need in third world countries. The Buffalo is designed to meet the pressing needs of those populations. Their collaboration with industry leaders reflects a commitment for creating a stronger, simpler, and sustainable bicycle that can withstand harsh rural conditions.
What if your bike is not just a jpeg sitting in your wallet?
What if Cycl:R had a proper utility?
Gaming is and has always been part of the project. That's an essential factor that we kept in the back of our head when creating the bikes. If successfully funded, Cycl:R is here to stay. And to do so, we plan to give every bike owners the ability to use their own bikes inside of a game. We're also already working on a way to upgrade every bikes.
But that's no it yet. We want to create a full ecosystem around that game, and reward people who plays it in a Play-to-Earn type of experience.
We understand the possibilities offered by the metaverse, and ultimately we want our users to take advantage of it. Giving you the choice to use your bike in these digital environments (with the guarantee that even without a lock, they won't be stolen).
Who knows, maybe one day Cycl:R will become a community standard in terms of metaverse bikes!
As the game will expand and the community grow, we want to make Cycl:R not only a digital thing, but anchor it in the real world. To do so, we will harness the power of the community to reach out to bike brands, or even creating partnership with big cycling events such as "Le tour de France". Imagine upgrading your bike with exclusive parts from your favorite brand, or competing in a major race while this one is happening.
There are numerous possibilities and for now all doors are open!
Now, how about you own a real Cycl:R bike?
If we make it to the symbolic milestone of 8000 bikes, we'll launch a very limited production of custom bikes, that we'll send to random token holders from our community.
It's not the metaverse, it's even better.
Thomas and Romain Pomarelle have known each other since forever. Blood brothers and best friends in life, we were already looking to put our talents together when we both started in the creative business 8 years ago. Nowadays, we're focused on 3D and motion design, and we're constantly looking for ways to improve. This quest for perfection has led us to work with various clients such as Chanel, Hermes, Adidas, Google or even Moncler. Yet this project is the biggest adventure we have undertaken!
