road.cc is a finalist in the BikeBiz 2011 awards!

Will we win for a second successive year? Plus, what should we do to make the site better?

BikeBiz award on white

We're dusting off our glad rags and putting the champagne on ice, because we've been announced as a BikeBiz awards finalist for the third year in a row, and we'll be hoping to pick up the Best Consumer Website award for the second year in succession. Not least because it's a faff changing the logo on the site.

It's not a done deal by any stretch though, because our good friends at Singletrack are also nominated and we'll be fighting them tooth and nail on the night to nab the prize. That's 'fighting' as in 'chummy socialising round the buffet'. They're also nominated for the Consumer Print Media gong which they won last year. It's also great to see young, fresh upstarts cyclistno1.co.uk in the final list, because we like them. Listing and news site The Bike List and the behemoth that is BikeRadar make up the finalists.

You can't vote for us, but you can wish us luck. And you can also comment below to let us know what you do and don't like about the site, what new stuff we should add and anything else the comes to mind. Because we like what we do, and we always want the site to be the best it can be. Your input counts. Get suggesting!

Well good luck, like you need it Wink

There is only one suggestion i can make, that would be to make the forum page slightly more mobile browser friendly or get a m.road.cc, i just find it a hassle the amount of time the ad's take to load on my phone Big Grin

I'd like to see the content use the whole browser window rather than a narrow strip down the centre. This would reduce scrolling and make everything feel less cramped.

Hoop-la. Fingers crossed.

You know all that questionnaire stuff at the end of reviews - "tell us who the product is aimed at", "I normally ride" etc? I never read that and would prefer it to be in a separate link or popup. This would make it much easier to scroll down to see if there are any comments.

Good luck to my number one surfing site, even if I can't afford most of the stuff, it's good to flatten my nose against the window.

Good luck!

I wouldn't mind seeing a dedicated racing section - would complement the fantasy cycling well.

Yep, a Blackberry friendly version would be good.
