Joining VeloClub not only supports the work we do, there are some fantastic benefits:

First and foremost, I want to thank each and every reader who comes to this blog. It’s grown exponentially and I’m grateful that you have a couple minutes of your busy day to give your attention here. I know you have a dozen other cycling websites to visit while you’re supposed to be working so my goal is to not take up more than 1-2 minutes of your time.
I also want to thank all the other bloggers out there for voluntarily posting links to this site.
Another thank you goes to everyone who clicks on a Google Ad before they leave as well as the people who order their ProBikeKit stuff by clicking on the banner to the right of this page. Although I do advocate supporting your LBS, I do get 5% commission from ProBikeKit on all orders that originate from here which helps keep the site costs to a minimum. BTW, all Google Ad and PBK revenue is still being funneled to the bushfire victims.
I’ve been asked dozens of times what my Twitter address is. I’ve finally succumbed to Twittering and now I’m posting short and sweet CyclingTwips.
Click the little bird above to follow Cycling Twips on Twitter. If you don’t know what Twitter is, here’s a short explanation that hits the nail on the head
The one thing that I AM excited to use Twitter for that will be useful is to quickly post race results seconds after they happen. Of course I can only post the results of the races that I’m at, but if other clubs want to do the same thing, I’ll gladly dedicate a page on this site for Twitter updates for race results.
The CYCLING TWIP I have today is this:
Get a thousand more km’s out of your tires by rotating the front tire to the back when the rear tire starts to show signs of wear. The rear tire tends to wear twice as quicly as the front because more weight is sitting on it and all the force that’s driving the bike forward is coming through the rear tire. Short and sweet.
Have a great weekend!
