Everybody needs friends - even cycling magazines.

When I spent some time as a freelancer my entire 'career' seemed to consist of writing 'witty' status updates on Facebook. You know things like 'Rob is unemployed/broke/desperate to get a job on a cycling magazine.' Now I have a full-time job I, of course, never look at Facebook.

Okay, I sometimes look at Facebook but, if you're reading this in the Future IT department, it's purely for work purposes. Cycling Plus, you see, appears to have a 'Fan' page. And it's making me a little sad – as I write we've only got 68 fans! And one of them is me, then there's my  father-in-law, brother-in-law and a former CPlus marketing lady! So that leaves just 'true' 64 fans.

So come on, cheer me up over Christmas - become a fan of Cycling Plus. Swell the ranks of CPlusites...Let's catch Bicycling magazine – it's currently looking down on us with a mighty 240 fans. And what's in it for you? Erm, nothing but a warm glow....

Rob Spedding

Editor-in-Chief, Cycling Plus, Cycling Plus Magazine
Editor-in-chief Rob has been pedalling Cycling Plus since 2007. His first proper road bikes were a Raleigh Sprint in the early 1980s and then a Trek 1000 in 1999. A former competitive runner, Rob has repeatedly threatened to become a competitive cyclist in every discipline from time-trailling to hill climbing to bike polo. We're still waiting.
  • Discipline: Road. Mainly commuting but with the occasional mountainous sportive that he'll complain about/fail to complete. Enjoys cake stops. Will never, ever do another triathlon after a bad experience in open water.
  • Preferred Terrain: Gently undulated roads – he's more of a rouleur. Likes gravel.
  • Current Bikes: BMC Alpenchallenge, Viner Perfecta, BMC Granfondo GF0, anything shiny that Warren Rossiter will allow him to ride
  • Dream Bike: Bianchi Specialissima, Raleigh Banana
  • Beer of Choice: Innis and Gunn Original
  • Location: Bath, UK
