While I will still be blogging, and shooting the breeze, I am also now writing serious essays for paid subscribers to my new Patreon page. The first subscribers coming into this exclusive club are politicians, the head of an EU funded bicycling program, Holland’s top academic researcher of cycling… you get the idea. I have effectively culled ignorant readers from my RSS feed with blog posts they don’t understand, so am confident I am inviting the right people to my Patreon page with this announcement. Full access costs only $2 per month and if you cancel your subscription before the start of a new month, you can avoid paying at all. On the other hand, for $20 per month you can have announcements presented to an elite group of the bicycling world’s influentials.
