reader's rides for the club mag

Postby ris » 12 Jan 2010 00:28

i'm looking for some mug... err generously spirited soul to write me a reader's ride piece for the next mag. so far we've done a boardman (with thanks to triumphant, GD01) and a vitus zenium (andy, GD02). if i don't the you're all going to have to read to read a lengthy description of my specialised allez, which will send the black bomber into a rage.

i'm pretty sure you all have bikes, some of you probably have more than one. scotty, how about a piece on that lovely pink ladies bike? ideally 800words or so and some pics, but i'll take anything i can get.

Don't forget to include detials of Ewan's ride either. We've seen some photo's of the part complete seat, but it would be good to see how it ties into the bike etc.

i'd love to see that too, but if ben is too busy... s11, how about a split-screen cringer/battlecat action?

ah someone's noticed where I got the name from... she's a split personality...lol

I'm up for it but I would love to see Ben's and Ewan in there. If he's too busy then I'll get something knocked.

Ben,

Come on mate, can you have something pulled together?

I'm happy to contribute, if required. My DOLAN TT creation started out as a Cycle2Work road bike, so might be relevant or useful to some people.
I had fun once. It was awful.

any writing with puns will defintely be included!

i've got 4 issues to do this year so having a couple in the bag would be ideal. if i am going to use the article in later issues then i will check before in case the bike is different, injured or dead.

if ben can't do it then can i have s11 and bopo's as a start? jon, you can have a bit longer but i'll be back for yours in the summer.
