Pico’s Cycling – Tales of the Road January 2014 Vol. 2 No. 1


Wow! I am so pleased with how far this webzine has come in just one month. I am proud of this second issue. We're already working hard on the February issue as this one hits cyberspace. Still hoping to attract more writers/cyclists, who want to share their stories. Biggest news for us is that we have effectively doubled the readership this month and there is still time for more.

Dressing Up the Moncton Maniac

It's winter and this article gives tips on dressing for the season. No professional models were used in the making of this article, in case that wasn't obvious. Photo credits go to Shawn Whitelaw who has taken most of the pictures that include yours truly.

Day Trip to Bouctouche

Introducing Jack Hawkins who has joined on here as a writer. He's pretty new to bicycle touring but his articles are just what the doctor ordered. I can't help but notice one thing from my own early riding. There are a lot of pictures of his bicycle in different places. This is a day trip he's sharing for the enjoyment of our readers. Welcome aboard Jack!

Hills...Bloody Hills!


A second helping from Jack. All pictures are courtesy Jack Hawkins as well. His training in journalism should contrast nicely with my country bumpkin storyteller style. This is another of his day trips.

Scouting the Route

This is a serial story about planning, training and executing a group cycling tour with complete novices. This installment is about planning the route and laying the ground work for something quite ambitious. Because the initial scouting was done during the winter I thought it would fit into our January issue nicely. More to come on this story.

Building an All Weather Commuter

We started this issue with how to dress for the winter. This article discussing creating a bicycle built for those out of the ordinary cycling conditions.

If you really enjoyed this issue, have a look through our previous issue here: http://picoscycling.blogspot.ca/2013/11/picos-cycling-tales-of-road-december.html
This webzine is a new learning experience. Any suggestions or ideas are welcome. Time for us to get to work on the third issue. Pedal power is awesome. Expect to have the next issue ready in the first week of February 2014. See you all again next month.

Pico Triano editor.
