That sounds like a good idea, I think we'd have to come up with some sort of house rules but I'm sure that wouldn't be a problem. We'll work something out when I get back from the Cervelo trip. If anyone else is interested in contributing a blog too - add yourself to this thread.

I know it is about football, but you can see (hopefully) that I am not inexperienced in the field of blogging B) http://www.oleole.com/blogs/hunts-terras-terrasblog

 It was good - I asked Carlos your Tour patron question - apparently it's going to be him Smile

The whole thing was very interesting: Cervelo and the rest of the sponsors involved really mean it when they say they want rider feedback on their products so that they can develop them accordingly - I suppose the only worry might be that what's good for a pro might not be so good for the rest of us. 

Haven't forgotten about user blogs either.

Hey, that sounds interesting - how would the boys on the mighty Plus take it though?

You would have been anyway… we've just been formulating our user blog rules and requirements etc etc (we'll post something on that later today), but as you meet them all anyway and your blog is better than mine… Crying

Or at least very different Smile

Hi Tony,
Silly me! I've just spent a couple of hours writing a blog, thinking I could post it on your site, as I think it would be useful/amusing for similar born again pedalers. Must be invitation only then? You can read it, if you like, at http://gilboridesagain.blogspot.com/ . It'll just be a diary type affair of my progress. No worries if you don't want to use it tho.

Hi Gilbo,
yes, read it, liked it, and think it would be a fine addition to the site… as long as you can keep it up regularly. I'll stick it on later when I've had my tea Smile

Ooh thanks!
Yup, I do intend writing the 'War And Peace' of bike blogs, in easy instalments, of course.

Could I have one too please? My musings would cover different aspects of cycling, and would certainly be extremely witty.. Thinking
