Announcing the new London Cyclist eBook

For the past couple of months I’ve been working on something really big. I’m very excited about finally announcing it to everyone and lifting the curtain on this because I know a lot of people will be interested.

Early next week I will be launching an eBook with 25 amazing cycling routes around London. I have to admit something to you. When I first set out to put together the eBook I thought what on earth have I got myself into?

A couple of my friends gave me that worried look you occasionally get from friends when I told them my plan. I mean I love my cycling but I thought about how much time this would take and how I didn’t want the blog to suffer due to putting time into the eBook. However, I decided to dive right in and go for it. After completing the first couple of routes and writing them up I actually began to realise how much I was enjoying this.

I’ve loved discovering new parts of London and in the past couple of months I’ve been having the time of my life. Instead of the worried look my friends are now giving me the look of "wow I never knew that about London". Some of them have even recruited me as a tour guide to show them round! I find myself unable to stop telling people about how much fun it is cycling around a certain part of the city that no one had ever told me about before.

This is the reason I’m so happy everything has come together (There have been a couple of moment where I’ve not been sure it would!). Now I’m able to share all the great locations I’ve found with you. Whilst I love cycling around the busy streets of London I do occasionally find that after a while dodging taxis and buses gets a little bit tiring. You may have experienced the same thing?

When I picture cycling I picture empty roads, plenty of room to breathe and enjoy cycling the way it is was truly meant to be. I think I owe that kind of great cycling to my bike!

That is what this eBook is about. Amazing cycling routes that anyone can do to discover parts of London you didn’t know existed.

What on earth is an eBook..

At this point I’ve been babbling on about eBooks and not even taken the time to explain them. They are basically an electronic copy of a book. The great benefit of this is that it is instantly available and you can print off any pages you need to take them with you. Perfect for cycling routes!

The good news…

The good news is that I’ll be giving away three of the routes next Monday. However you’re going to have to join the newsletter to get all three. Luckily doing this is easy and you can use the form in the sidebar. Of course you are welcome to unsubscribe at any time if you don’t like the news I’m sending.

This will be a great way to take a look at the routes and see if it is the kind of thing you might be interested in.

At this stage you may be thinking one of a few things…

The first is "awesome, I can’t wait to find out about some great new places to go cycling and experience new things in London." Fantastic! You are the reason I put together this eBook and I know you’re going to love it.

The second is "this isn’t for me". That is absolutely fine. I recognise this eBook is not for everyone and neither was it ever my intention to be, otherwise it wouldn’t be amazing for those people who are interested.

The third is "I’m on the fence". No problem at all, over the next few days I’ll let you know more details and I’m sure you will know enough to make the right decision.

It feels great to finally get this announcement off my chest and the next few days will be very busy putting together the final touches so I’ll let you know how things are coming along.
