Getting muddy: Our ambassadors in action

By Vratislav Šlapák

We have some wonderful ambassadors who help us spread our passion for cycling. This month we sent them out to find some mud. We asked them to have fun with it and send us back the footage. A simple task, or was it?

We wanted to use the mud footage as a way of introducing some our of Ambassadors and celebrate spring. However after assigned them the task they all reported back beautiful sunshine or a snow for the next 3 weeks. Our production team was in despair: “we can’t find any mud”!

They almost got to the point of hiring a shaman to perform an ancient Indian rain dance. Finally we got lucky. A little bit. Let’s meet the We Love Cycling Ambassadors who appear in the video. Next month we will introduce you to our next three ambassadors. You can say hello to them and ask them questions about cycling on our facebook.
