Changes to the website, the newsletter and other things.

Due to few moans I be getting over past few weeks, I have decide that in the future, the weekly e-newsletter that I send out on Thursday will only publicising  South Lakes Group events, if other local RSF groups or cycling clubs wish to have there events advertise in the Where the cafe? e-newsletter they must agree to have these events added to new diary of cycling events section on the Where’s the Brew stop? website as i have decide that Diary of off-road local group events website is not generate enough hits so I am going move information about the Autumn Meet, the Easter Meet, the National Committee  and joining information back on to South Lakes Group website, it may take me a few months to do but once it as been done the Diary of off-road local group events website will be close down.

To reflect these changes and put some distance from what Rough-Stuff Fellowship does on the web, the banner on the South Lakes Group website will be change to ‘ South Lakes Group, your local off-road cycle touring club, for cyclists who enjoy off-road leisure in  the South Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales’. This again may takes a few months to do but hopefully raise the sites rank in search engine rankings.

As there good core of local riders coming on South Lakes Group rides over the past 12 months, its time that some of the work I do in running the group is share out, Chris as take over maintaining the South Lakes Group Area on the Rough-Stuff Fellowship Website, I looking for someone to write bimonthly report of about 250 words of what the group as been doing over past two months for the Rough-Stuff Journal and e-mail to the Editor, as well as having me as Secretary, we should have group chairman, and other group officers your ideals would be welcome on this.

You may have notice that there runs meeting on the Saturday 10th November at 8 Beech Road, Halton starting at 7pm to plan forthcoming events of the group in December, January and February. So get thinking about some routes and maybe volunteer to a lead ride (You need to be member for a year before you lead a group ride).

My self and Ian plan the South Lakes Group rides for September, October and November at end of July to meet Rough-Stuff Journal deadline, these were e-mail Journal Editor on the 26th July it seems that he never receive them due he was having problems with his new e-mail account, so it look like the forthcoming South Lakes Group events for September and October will not be in the forthcoming journal, which I am unhappy about as I only found about it this week, its not major problem as most folk look at the South Lakes Group website or that the weekly newsletter. 

You do have the right to rely if you agree or disagree me by writing a comment at bottom of this post.

    All sounds good work to me. Shame about the forthcoming rides bot being in the magazine, as I think the readership of the magazine would have liked to se the events published. The magazine, I assume goes out to a, wider readership than the weekly newsletter? I think the mag may also get passed onto none members and encourage new ones to join our rides. What is done, though cannot be undone

  • The readship of the journal is around 600 mark if every member reads it and the newsltter goes out to 146 e-mail address and the South Lakes Group website gets between 500 to 1,000 hit per week depending how well its get promote on cycling forums.
