Guest Contributor Contest, Call for Prizes

Are you getting ready to become a guest contributor between January 1st and February 15th?

As I said previously, CycleItalia has sent a box of goodies for prizes that also included several Campagnolo 75th anniversary pins (and there is still more to come from them):

And there are more prizes I'll be writing about in the near future: a very nice poster from, a chamois cream supply from Enzo's Cycling Products, an Italian Cycling Journal musette from Velo-Retro, and more (I hope). By the way, Velo-Retro is having a special sale on T-shirts with this design which makes a perfect gift for the holidays:

Get those pens, PCs, iPhones, IPads, Droids out and start writing.......

To repeat what I wrote on November 12th:

One of my goals for the Italian Cycling Journal is to make it a place where people can find and read stories of cycling trips and cycling adventures in Italy.

With winter around the corner for most of the cycling world I thought it would be fun to have a contest to entice you to write a story about your cycling trip, or an aspect of your trip, in Italy. Or, it can be about a granfondo experience, etc.

The period for story submissions for prizes will be January 1-February 15, 2011.

First, we need some prizes! If you are in the cycling products business, or know someone that is, I'm looking for prizes that will be given out by random drawing to the guest contributors. In return I will list you as a prize contributor with a hot link to your site at the end of every story published (whether from a contributor or not) from January 1 to February 15, 2011, (the number of stories published this year have been between 32 and 62 in a month). Contact me at for more information and readership numbers.

Guest contributors: the prizes will be awarded on a random basis, stories will not be judged on which is the "best" one. Nevertheless, it should be a good story for the enjoyment of all readers. Photos accompanying the story are most welcome. If you have any questions email me at

Thank you in advance to everyone.

Angelo senza la o

Stories for the Italian Cycling Journal about rides, granfondos, having a good time cycling in Italy, Italian cycling history, etc. are very welcome. Contact me at There are more than 1,600 stories in this blog. The search feature to the right works best for finding subjects in the blog. There is also an Italian weather widget along the right side and a translate button at the bottom so you can translate each page. What I'm riding.
