Guest Posting on BicycleLab.com
Bicycle Lab is a blog for road and triathlon cyclists.
Bicycle Lab is focused on helping road cyclists and triathletes get more out of their overall cycling experience. The purpose of the site is to build relationships with our readers by educating them about their chosen sport.
With these relationships they will be more interested in buying our bicycle fitting services as well as attending our online seminars, classes and workshops.
We want smart thought provoking pieces that will start conversations and educate readers.
- Voice – interesting and conversational. Eliminate the jargon and corporate speak.
- Do you leave the readers with something to think about and discuss in the comments?
- Is there a takeaway for readers? What do they get out of your post?
- There is absolutely no selling in the post. (you may provide a link you your bio but no offer)
