New Year’s Eve is that traditional time to look back at the year, and make plots and plans for the future – and in blogging terms, it’s always fun to remind myself what I’ve done. So, some highlights from the blog, and things you may have missed from 2014. I know it’s a bit self-indulgent, but hell, that’s what this time of year is for!
My most viewed posts of 2014
Unsurprisingly, the top 5 most-read posts were guides on how to watch live racing – in order, starting with the most views, how to watch La Course, the 2014 Cyclocross World Championships, the Friends Life Women’s Tour, the Commonwealth Games cycling and the Giro Rosa. I put all my guides to watching racing in real life in my Live cycling section. And if you, like me, are excited about the #WT2015, here’s their first video of the year:
The actual 4th place goes to a post I didn’t even write this year, but people keep finding (possibly through some of the more bizarre search terms):
Number 6 on the list was another rant/rage-post: I am so sick of reading these stories, all about the frustration of reading this article on La Bicicleta México, alleging Mexican riders on Estado de México-Faren weren’t paid, but to add insult to injury, also faced discrimination within the team and unacceptable treatment from team staff. My heart-felt hope is that the UCI works out a process to support riders in 2015, so these stories become a thing of the past.
After that? Shopping posts – lots of shopping posts! Check out the Shopping section for gift guides, where you can buy team kit, cycling clothing for women who are XL and above, and a lot more – just check out the date they were written on, because some of the links are broken.
