    I'm trying to get lockers installed here for the cyclists. Over the last couple of days I've printed a load of flyers, rolled them into a tube stuck with a small piece of sellotape, and slid them onto the handelbars of the bikes locked up here.

    The response has been great, and no-one has complained as nothing is stuck to their bike.

    Which got me thinking-

    Why don't we do a Cyclechat ad template which could be downloaded and distributed by members wherever they see fit. It could end with something like "tell them <username> sent you".

    What do you think?

    If me and Oates get it sorted, we could all learn Chinese!

    That's not a bad idea.

    A PDF that everyone could download and pass around to friends, colleagues, or club mates. :smile:

    So, any volunteers?

    Shaun, can we get a jpeg of the CC logo?

    And how would we host the file on here?

    I've got some Photoshop files of the logo, and I can upload pretty much anything to a page and place it on the site somewhere for members to find/view/download it.

    It might take me a few weeks to do something on this though as we're moving back into our house next weekend and we've got shed-loads of work to do both in preparation, and afterwards.

    I'll let you know once I've put something together then everyone can have a pick and play. I've also got Acrobat on my office PC so email me your designs and I should be able to PDF them. :evil:

    Cheers,
    Shaun

    Great idea. I see, BTW, that we have a new member who joined after seeing a jersey on "a guy in Selby". As I was in Selby that day, in my jersey, I wonder if they mean me....:wacko:

    Anything happening? With the sportive season well underway, I agree that there is a great opportunity to promote the forum.....I'll be wearing CC jersey for these, but a flyer might add something too.

    i wore mine on the macc bikathon, until the first checkpoint when i had to put the event t-shirt over the top as cycling at a 9 year old's pace does not warm you up enough for just one layer :laugh:

    Why don't YOU do it? :angry:

    Go on, you don't need anyone to help you. Just go and recruit! :sad:

    Because I'm not pc-art-savvy, and I can't host the file on here.

    you don't need to be - just right click the logo, 'copy image'. Fire up paintbrush. Paste. Add 'www' somewhere, and drag it before the word cyclechat, and similar with '.co.uk' afterwards.
    Copy the whole lot and paste it into word, add any text you want below, and there's your flyer!

    And you don't need to 'host a file', just print it off and put it on the bikes. Go on, get cracking.
