new project: charity rides blog

This is my new project:

Charity Rides: Central NJ

It's a blog that will show listings of charity rides local riders might want to do. The rules are:
  • Close enough that I might want to do it (I live on the border of North Brunswick & Kendall Park, NJ);
  • Some amount of the cost of the ride must go to a charity other than a bike club (which is why the Gran Fondo makes the cut, and the Princeton Event does not);
  • There has to be some information about the upcoming ride (not just last year's ride), even if, at the time of the post, it's just a date placeholder.

It's not going to be a complete list, and, frankly, I don't expect much traffic in the first year. I figure it won't really be until summer of 2013 that it will get much traffic, and it won't be until after that that the rides themselves will show any notice.

And if it doesn't go anywhere, I can drop it.

I'll spend part of this snowy weekend sending emails to the bike clubs asking for links, email blasts, and ongoing mentions in their ride listings.

  1. You'll be happy to know that the Ride For McBride organizers have already checked your blog for potential conflicts with the date we're planning for 2012. We'll let you know the date as soon as it's set.
