Women’s Cycling Weekly, Issue 12

A quick editor’s note 😛 TAGEND

Each week, Amy Jones attracts the best women’s cycling material in all regions of the Internet( and sometimes beyond) into an humorous, easily grasped newsletter. In the 12 weeks since the launching, it’s become a staple of my Friday afternoons. I have a suspicion it will soon be a staple of yours.

Some sort of newsletter like this is an idea we’ve thrown around for a while, but never perfectly dove into. That turns out to have been a unforeseen decision, because what Amy situates together every week is already a superb example of the category. Preferably than reinvent the pedal, we’re proud to partner up with Amy to wreak Women’s Cycling Weekly to the CyclingTips audience.

Why do I cherish WCW? Precisely because it draws content from all over , not just from us. We’re proud of our women’s cycling coverage here at CT, but with so much good stuff coming from shops like Rouleur( check out their latest matter ), VeloNews, CyclingNews, and more, restriction a newsletter to merely our own content doesn’t do the sport right. So though we’re promoting it, Amy retains terminated editorial power over WCW. It’s important that it retains the feel and enunciate she’s already built.

The best way to substantiate Women’s Cycling Weekly is to sign up with your email at the lower end of this page it is therefore shows up in your inbox every Friday.

I hope you enjoy.
