There’s definitely a change to a more journalistic and professional style of writing. That’s not the same as ‘better’.

It's not the editor writing the articles it's the riders. I don't think there was anything po-faced in the last article I wrote, I always try to celebrate the events and the helpers above all else

I've been enjoying my copy today. A good variety of voices, and even though I'm not planning to do PBP it was interesting to read about it.

Probably because my article didn't get in ;)

I feel your pain.

I had an article rejected about this time last year, I.e. in the run up to the AGM, on the grounds that it 'might be read by non-members'.

That was not an editorial decision...

I don't often wish I was 70, but I was rather curious about the call for audax volunteers aged between the ages of 70-80 to take part in a study at Nottingham University.

"Participants well be required to cycle while lying in an MRI scanner".

Water off a ducks back for recumbent riders. Probably not great in numbers though!

Anybody interested?

Have you had confirmation from Ged that it was received?

In some of my early copies riders sent poetry in.  Rather different to self-depracating, more intentional whimsy.

Be careful - I might submit my "Ode to a Stronger Rider" (distantly related to "Ode to a Nightingale") !

Yes! I'd be up for a go in that, but a while to wait yet.

Mine arrived earlier this week. In my pile to read  with the BMC summit magazine.

Funny you mention that ...

I've just got my 1st issue of Summit. It's like a different world! Totally unfair to make comparisons, but a MUCH more interesting read.
(and it has a lovely cycle-touring article  O:-) )

I don't know that magazine. Is it also written entirely by readers and designed and edited by members working for considerably less than their professional rates?

I think the articles are written by us - I think the editor works with what he's sent.

Started the ball rolling a couple of days ago.

So far, I qualify for all their criteria. But if things move forward, there is a lot more information that they're going to need details about.

Cycling criteria includes being able to ride 100 km.
I don't want to grow old gracefully. I want to grow old disgracefully.

intrigued by the idea of cycling while having an MR scan;

Having indirectly been present at a few scans my understanding is that the subject has to stay completely motionless while the image is taken (several minutes) in order to get a good result. But this might be a moving scan

I'd guess fMRI, so low-resolution scanning in near-realtime in order to track changes in blood flow, rather than the high-resolution scanning used to look for anatomical whatevers.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...
