We love to receive guest posts! We try to give guest authors as much exposure as possible. We use social media heavily for publicizing.
Requirements for Guest Posts
We request the following from guest posters:
- That the post is on topic and has some information of interest or value for our readers. Our readers tend to be average people like us, who love to ride bikes (that is, they are not competitive or professional cyclists). They are of all ages, and live all over the world, with the majority being in the USA, Canada, and the UK. Many of them are interested in getting fit with cycling, and in commuting by bike.
- That the post be a minimum of 750 words (up to as long as you like).
- That the post is well written. We strive to maintain very high standards on this blog, and unfortunately cannot accept posts that require heavy editing. We just do not have the time to edit them.
- That the author if at all possible supplies us with some graphics, at least 750 pixels wide. And that the author gives us full permission to use those photos as we like (with appropriate credit if requested). Please note that if you cannot supply graphics, it will take longer for your post to be published, as we will need to find some.
Credit for Guest Posts
- We are happy to publish your photograph and bio, if you wish.
- If you are a blogger yourself, we are happy to publish a link to your own blog in your bio.
- Under some circumstances, subject to negotiation, we may provide up to three links to URL’s of your choice.
We reserve the right to do some editing, for example to improve the grammar, or to add a link to one of our previous posts, or to add extra researched content for our readers, if we feel the post as submitted is a bit “thin.” Our goal at all times is to offer our readers posts that are useful to them, and provide them content that has substance.
We look forward to receiving your guest post. Please send it as a Word document, using this email address. Please expect to wait a while for a decision, as we receive guest posts every day and are a small family business.
