I have just come up with a brilliant idea

I went on a nice ride today the Massbug Sustainability ride (details soon). And I was thinking how much I love our customers. Not specifically the people on the ride. Don't be embarrassed. But I do some good thinking when I'm riding or after I've been riding.

So my brilliant idea is

to create a new blog covering Sydney bike culture!

Now, that is what Dave and I have been trying to do already, but there is so much cool stuff going on and so many cool people involved, that everyone should know about . And I reckon it could be a great resource and could help the cause of bike culture in Sydney. NB this will not be a Cheeky Transport blog per se. It would be a stand alone thing. I'd like to try and make it as positive as possible. Have a look at these sites for an idea of what I'm thinking
http://bicyclekitchen.blogspot.com/
http://bikeportland.org/ i love the byline "To inform and insipre"

SO, basically, I might set it up and ask people to be contributors of cool stuff (news, events, stories, thoughts, cries for help, whatever) whenever they feel like it

Anyone got any ideas ? We need a name, something sydney centric. Remember this is for Sydney bike culture. Don't be shy

latest news "velosydney" has been set up, but i may change the name if we come up with something else. Keep them names coming!

Damn that's a good idea!
