We’ve gone and gotten ourselves a tumblr

Stuff, stuff, stuff, stuff…… stuff. There’s just so much stuff out there now, way too much stuff in the cycling ether that it’s almost impossible to keep track of it all. Photos, videos, shiny equipment, posters, stickers, drawings, just….. stuff, gushing all over the internet.

So road.cc have fired up a tumblr to throw all the cycling stuff that catches our eye but doesn’t warrant its own feature, maybe it’s just a picture or a video or simply a nice thing. Think of it as an infinite bike shed of desire, a boundless scrapbook of dreams, a soup of inspiration, an opulence of distraction, you get the idea. Anything that makes us go “Ooooh”, gives us a smile or makes our tummies go a little fizzy.

As is the way of tumblr it will be on a perpetually rolling update so keep clicking here or go to the tumblr button at the top of the page.

Jo Burt has spent the majority of his life riding bikes, drawing bikes and writing about bikes. When he's not scribbling pictures for the whole gamut of cycling media he writes words about them for road.cc and when he's not doing either of those he's pedaling. Then in whatever spare minutes there are in between he's agonizing over getting his socks, cycling cap and bar-tape to coordinate just so. And is quietly disappointed that yours don't He rides and races road bikes a bit, cyclo-cross bikes a lot and mountainbikes a fair bit too. Would rather be up a mountain.

For all the confused middle aged men reading this, go ask your teenage daughter what tumblr is.

And on the 9th day neo was fired for gross misconduct (circumventing network security) and had to sell his bike. And car. And house. And arse. To sailors.

No proxy servers for me here... it's like fort knox (and I'm one of the sysadmins...feel my pain :*( )

Not really worth the time to view tumblr, I'll just check my phone ;P

Panic over all, you may resume your duties.  36

Huh, you think I'll be able to see Tumblr from this network? I can't even see any of the vids on this site, because they're embedded from youtube...

Shurly with your talents you can arrange a way in for the select few. There's always a back door for these things....

Oooh! Tumblr.

One of the good things about being self employed is not having to conform to some other kill-joy's internet access policies.

I have Tumblr on laptop and phone  36 4

The Hanseeno shoes are astonishing and I instantly want them. BUT, 1. the aren't for sell, all sold, out 2. Are probably not very practical or comfortable, 3. I cant afford them anyway 4. I would probably get the wrong size and have to punt them on ebay for a 99% loss.

hhuh, deep exhale, I can never have nice things.
