The Post Challenge

For the past week I’ve wracked my brain for something interesting to write about and the only thing I could come up with was my hatred of little green balls of poison. My lack of writing isn’t due to a lack of riding but I’m guessing that not many people are really interested in my trainer ride monotony. Unless you’ve been out riding in the latest arctic blast you probably don’t have much to write about either.

So here’s my idea. I’m going to throw out a writing topic and ask everyone that is interested to write a post on it sometime in the next week. I’m sure you’re really busy at this time of year but hopefully you’ll be able to find some time in the next week for a post. I will also write a post on the same topic and post it next Friday.

If you choose to participate in this assignment your efforts will not go unnoticed. Nosiree! If you paste a link to your awesome post in a comment to me I will consolidate all of them into one post with a short synopsis and link of your post. That way the 1000’s of people (OK, maybe a little less than that) who read my blog will check out your post and take note of the incredible writer and rider that you are. Also, if you don’t have a blog (I’m not sure how could that be) and still want to participate just email me your post and I’ll post it on my site for all others to check out. My email address is mikeonhisbike1 at gmail dot com.

So without further delay here is your post challenge.

Your favorite ride/adventure of 2009

I added adventure to the topic in case you don’t ride and still want to participate. This topic could be on just about anything you want from a great race, excruciating mountain climb, incredible wreck, interesting tour, brush with fame, trip to the dentist and the list goes on.

I went on a lot of rides in 2009 so I’m not really sure which one I’m going to write about but I’ll have a good post up by next Friday. Don’t be shy about taking up this challenge, I’m excited to hear of your greatest adventure moments of 2009.

As with any good assignment here’s a stretch goal for you. If you work the word interdigitate into your post somewhere I will give you extra credit. So start thinking about what you can write about and get your creativity going on that extra credit word.

Have a great weekend and be sure to make some time for writing.

Oh good challenge! I haven't written in a while so I'm excited to give it a go.

I may have to interdigitate my fingers as I contemplate which adventure makes the cut.

Great idea, Mike! I hope you get lots of responses. I will be sure to be one of them.

That'll give me something to think about on my next ride. I'll take your challenge!

My favourite ride is always the one just finished or the next to come. LOL

Can I submit my Tour of Bright race report? If I had to choose one race/ride than this would probably be it!

Groover, you can submit anything you would like. The Tour of Bright is perfect.

I have been strugling with the idea of coming up with my own riding blog and after reading this, i now have an answer. Watch this space.
