From London Cyclist
If all goes to plan London Cyclist will have a brand new sexy look in less than 10 days. Alongside with this I will also be starting a newsletter that will provide a weekly roundup of London Cyclist updates and a few more bonuses such as a free eBook. I’ll let you know as soon as all is ready!
I’m very pleased to say November has been a very successful month here on London Cyclist with a record breaking 15 posts and over 100 comments. Thanks everyone! This month also marked the beginning of reviews and I’ve had nothing but positive feedback from you so I’ll be continuing it into next month. I know for certain one of the reviews will be on Alastair Humphrey’s books.
