Writers Wanted: I’m looking for a few good cycling writers to help add quality content to Best Rides DC. The topics, of course, will be related to cycling in the DC, MD, and VA regions, but will not be explicitly limited to those. If you have something that you want to share, like a recent adventure to a regional or international destination, or something you deeply care about related to riding and cycling in the region we’ll review them.
Did you ride the Patapsco Trail Fest? The Tour de Fall Line? the Anne Arundel 100? Then maybe a short article on the vibe and what it was like. Perhaps you can convince others to get out there. How about why you’re training for the 2017 SM 100, or for an upcoming regional road century? What tips would you share with those on the fence about riding an event next year?
I’d like for you to share your experiences at a local trail, path, or road ride. Why cycling means something to you, and why you are out there riding. Something that shows your passion for the sport; that may inspire others to venture onto the trail, path, or road. Personal essays, opinions, commentaries, interviews, studies, and anything inspirational will be welcome. Controversial? sure – if it does not demean, insult, or degrade any one person or group it’ll be fine. Discourse fuels thought, and if it inspires people to take a stand on a topic read here the better..
I am not looking for gear reviews or why 29ers are better than 26ers; there are already many sites that do that. Perhaps in the future; but not now…
I’ll be up front with you: I have a small budget; but I’m willing to pay you for your work. If you are interested and have some good ideas please contact me first and we can, at the very least, start a conversation.
