Computer Down

It’s been an interesting few days. On one hand there has been catastrophic computer failure at work and on the other someone very special is back from Mauritius. In between there has been bad luck, good luck and broken bike bits.

I’ve been working on the singletrack information bureau for a while now and it is now pretty much finished in it’s revised and now css-based format. There are a few little finishing touches to add here and there and I’m still not 100% happy with the bike or product tests index, but I’m not sure I can think of a simple and effective way to format these. I’ve tried to cut down on the use of graphics and move away from the use of tables. Any feedback or bright ideas will be welcome.

The first of the Manchester Revolution track sessions took place this weekend. Larry Hickmott talks to Cofidis rider Davis Miller over on the British Cycling website. There is also an interview with arguably the UK’s newest hope for international success in cross country mountain biking, Liam Killeen.

Getting published in the world of biking is no easy task as a few have found out. The general view is that several editors have killed a lot of enthusiasm. Whilst people may not necessarily expect to get work accepted, some form of response is always good. Even a thanks, but no thanks.

It motivates people to keep writing, even if a lot of the time, that writing is for the love of it rather than in the hope of getting published. For writers in this position, whether or not people stumble across these ramblings and empathise with documented experiences isn’t important.
