    Hi,

    My name is Alex, I’m a bike enthusiast and I’ve recently been reading some articles on your site. I found your site offering quality content and I want to ask if you also accept guest posting. I love writing about biking, and I would love to compose for your site. I have already written a couple of articles, and I could send you samples if needed. I do have a lot of topics in mind, but I’m also open to your proposals.

    Please let me know if you accept guest posting, and I will be more than glad to offer interesting content for your readers to enjoy.

    Regards,

    Alex

    Hi Richard

    I plan to use a picture you took of Carlton Reid in a booklet that I am writing on behalf of the Authors Licensing and Collecting Society about new ways for journalists to benefit from their work.  I am letting you know here, in line with your request.  I will, of course, credit you and let you know when the booklet is out.

    Best wishes

    Dear Cyclelicious,

    How are you? We are currently producing a great documentary about a bunch of amazing cyclists and I thought of sending you some info in case you think you could talk about it on your site/newsletter. It is very inspirational and I think you will be interested.

    We are following a group of cyclists as they prepare for the London 2012 Paralympic games. Juanjo lost his left arm and left leg in an accident 20 years ago and then he found cycling and has since become the Spanish cycling champion. Eli just took to cycling a few months ago after Juanjo raced by her car and now she is one tenth of a second away from qualifying to represent Spain at the Olympics. Them and a bunch of other cyclists formed the “Pirates Team”, a group of inspirational, socially committed cyclists that break all barriers and stereotypes and show how much good cycling can do for so many people. 

    You can watch two of our trailers here:

    http://vimeo.com/33584769

    http://vimeo.com/41074579

    I am 100% certain that you will find them inspiring.

    They only take a few minutes s to watch and the more people that watch them will help our page hits increase and that may help us find sponsors/patrons.

    Can I ask a big favour? If you like them, can you cut and paste these links and send them on to friends and colleagues please or publish them on your facebook page or site? And if you are on facebook you could add as a friend – www.facebook.com/imparablesdocumental

    Or you can download the press pack here:

    http://www.imparablesdocumental.com/eng/press/Unstoppables_Press_Pack.zip (English)

    And finally, if you want to give me any feedback, then I really look forward to hearing from you.

    Many thanks and best wishes.

    I wanted to reach out to the bicycle community and let them know about a kickstarter that I am launching to fund a month long road trip to finish the shooting for my ghost bike project. Hopefully, you forward and repost this link and maybe even become a backer (every dollar helps). I greatly appreciate you taking the time to look at this link and pass it along.

    My name is Loren and I am looking for an opportunity to contribute articles to your site. We sell prescription sunglasses for cyclist and all sport activities, and there are some new sport-specific lenses that your readers would be interested in. We occasionally publish articles with PR Web, but the material is more suited to your readers than the general public. Our goal is to get our site as well ranked as your blog, so we’re hoping to be more visible relevant places like your blog.

    By the way, if there is a specific topic you need information on just let me know. We have done a ton of research on how polarization effects sport enthusiast, new digital lens designs for progressive lens wearers, and lens colors that work best for you.
    I look forward to hearing back from you.

    I’m a regular reader of your blog and have enjoyed the articles and tips you provide.

    I have crossed paths with a new start up called StemLite. They launched a Kick Starter 3 weeks ago at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1266057078/stemlite-integrated-bicycle-light

    I would love to hear what you think about this cool new product.

    If you would like any more information, please contact me.

    Hi Cyclelicious

    Great Blog!

    I’d like to let you know about my kickstarter project LIGHT-POST that just launched yesterday.

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/andrebrown/light-post-a-minimalist-seat-tube-integrated-led-b

    I hope it might interest you and your readers enough for you to feature it on your blog.

    I have worked on designs for some of the most iconic designers of our generation including James Dyson and Alex Moulton. LIGHT-POST is a first foray for me personally into product design (though I have patents from my time at Dyson, and I have also designed and built my own sportscars)

    If you would like any further info, please do let me know.

    thanks & best regards

    Hello Cyclelicious,

    I recently came across your site and was reading all of your great blog posts. While reading your blog I noticed how important bike safety is to both you and your readers.

    As cycling is transforming from just a recreational activity to a serious means of transportation, the need for comprehensive bike safety education is more important than ever. After all, 74% of cyclist fatalities result from head injuries.

    That is why our Outreach Safety team created “The Ultimate Guide to Bike Safety.” We believe practicing safe cycling methods can prevent most accidents.

    To best spread the message of bike safety, we hope you will help share our graphic with as many people as possible (http://jknylaw.com/bicycle-safety/). We sincerely hope you enjoy it and please feel free to add this to your blog as well.

    I appreciate your time and welcome any feedback you may have. I know bike safety is important to all of us and I look forward to hearing from you, thanks!

    Keep on Cycling!
    Courtney

    Hello !

    Adam with YEKRA here. I wanted to follow up on our previous email and share some exciting news that could be a great fit for Cycleicious. We’re releasing a ground-breaking new documentary from SONY Pictures called The Armstrong Lie. It’s an in depth look at Lance Armstrong’s infamous return to the spotlight.

    The idea is that you can share this and other powerful films about health and fitness on your website and social media pages while keeping the Cycleicious audience right there on your pages/feeds. Even better, you’ll receive a percentage of the revenue generated from every rental or sale of the film!

    Signing up is free, and embedding the player on Cycleicious and any social media pages is quick and easy. People watching the trailer will have the option to rent or buy the film, and you’ll make a portion of the proceeds from every sale through your embedded player. Share a film on your site, make a share of the revenue, and offer your audience something they care about, all at no cost to you.

    By becoming an affiliate, you can share The Armstrong Lie on the same day it premieres on other platforms like iTunes and Amazon and, if you’re interested in supporting other projects, we have a number of other films you might be interested in.

    To browse our titles, visit https://www.yekra.com/tools/affiliateconnect/enrollment/ and click SIGN UP NOW.

    Thanks again for your time. If you have questions or comments about how to proceed, don’t hesitate to ask! I am thrilled for the chance to work with you and help you become a distributor of great information and entertainment.

    Best,

    Adam

    Hi Cyclelicious,

    Thank you for advocating for getting more people riding bikes! We are a small bike company based out of Brooklyn, NY and we too want to get more people riding bikes and less cars on the road. To that end, we’ve just launched a campaign on Kickstarter. The Universal Bike is the first adjustable carbon-fiber bike that can fit 99% of the population. Feel free to take a look and share.

    Hello Cycleicio.us,

    I would like to introduce you a cool product for all those who love bikes and who love beautiful, well-designed things.

    Many people say a front bicycle derailleur is the most disliked part of their bike. We have an alternative – a 3-speed front gearbox. It makes riding a bike (and shifting gears) much simpler, nicer and quicker. And it makes each bike look much better.

    The Efneo gearbox is the only 3 speed system on the market that doesn’t require a dedicated frame design. All other systems are either 2 speed or require a specific frame design!

    Efneo gearbox is dedicated for urban, hybrid, trekking, folding and non-competition off-road bikes. It is also great for e-bikes with a rear wheel engine and a beautiful upgrade for single-speed.

    You can see a video and a lot of product details here – http://www.efneo.com/gearbox . In a “For press” section you’ll find a beautiful collection of photos to choose for your site.

    We’ll be launching our crowdfunding campaign soon! Hope you like the product and can write a few words about us :)

    Kind regards,
    Franek

    PS.
    You can find more about our story, our plans and what is so special about Efneo gearbox here: http://www.efneo.com/gearbox-description/

    Hello,

    Most of us either love to work out – or let’s be honest — hate to work out but do it anyway. While we may disagree on the extent of our love for fitness, there’s one thing we can all agree on — working out is so much more fun when you’re listening to your favorite tunes. I’m writing to you on behalf of 1 Voice, an innovative wearable technology brand based in Manhattan that develops Bluetooth enabled sports gear. 1 Voice, created by entrepreneur & fitness enthusiast Girish Karnani, is making it easier for all of us to work out and still listen to our favorite music — without having to deal with the frustration of dangling earbuds constantly getting yanked out of our ears. 1 Voice has actually eliminated the problem altogether by going wireless. In addition to the 1 Voice Beanie, which we launched at the end of last year, we recently launched the 1 Voice sports headband. This particular headband is made of enhanced performance fabric and silicone gel earbuds that stay in your ear even when you sweat and allow for up to 6-8 hours of continuous play time.

    1 Voice is a small, relatively new company, and so we’re still trying to get the word out and raise awareness and would love your help. In fact, we were recently featured in an up and coming wearable tech segment on CBS news in New York. We’ve read your blog and feel strongly that your content aligns with our brand, and are excited about the potential to partner with you. Would you be willing to share info about 1 Voice to your followers? In exchange, we could offer a promo code and provide additional images and content.

    I’d be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

    Thanks,

    Kevin Stierle
