Today’s RBR Newsletter is Issue No. 700! For 15 years now, we’ve been bringing our readers a weekly dose of How-To Road Cycling Info.
There have been a few constants over these past 15 years:
- The Newsletter remains a monumental undertaking. Gathering, writing, editing, working with authors and reviewers to keep a steady information flow, posting articles to the site, creating and sending the weekly email, etc. – all of that and more takes a load of time and effort.
- The Newsletter remains the work of just me and a very small band of dedicated contributors. All of us work at this because we love road cycling and want to help promote it to other recreational riders like us.
- We believe that what we do has value, and our fervent hope is that in every issue, you find at least one or two pieces of useful information that can help you in some way as a fellow passionate roadie.
We Need Your Help to Renew the Resource
I’ve always viewed RBR as a resource for roadies. Before I took over, I was a long-time regular reader, and I constantly learned and grew as a cyclist from what I read. (I learn more every week, without fail.) I was turned on to RBR by a cycling buddy of mine, and I in turn told many other of my cycling friends about RBR.
All these years later, I still regularly meet roadies who’ve never heard of RBR – which I really think is a shame!
So I’m asking for your help in “renewing the resource” by spreading the word about RBR in whatever ways you can. There surely will be some overlap here, but if you are:
- An individual rider: Tell all your riding buddies and cycling friends about RBR – by word of mouth and/or by social media. Be sure to mention the free weekly Newsletter (the link is to the sign-up page) and that RBR also has both a Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/RoadBikeRider, and Twitter feed, https://twitter.com/RBRoadBikeRider
- A club member or officer: Tell your club leadership about RBR, and share with them the toolset we’ve developed for clubs: https://www.roadbikerider.com/tools-for-cycling-clubs
- An organized ride director or staffer (or you know one): Take a look at (or share with them) the toolset we’ve developed for organized rides: https://www.roadbikerider.com/tools-for-organized-rides
- A coach (or you have one or know one): Take a look at (or share with them) the toolset we’ve developed for coaches: https://www.roadbikerider.com/tools-for-coaches
- A tour company operator (or you know one): Take a look at (or share with them) the toolset we’ve developed for tour companies: https://www.roadbikerider.com/tools-for-tour-companies
You have my thanks for anything you can do to help introduce RBR to more passionate roadies!
We’ll see you again next week.
