Things at runbikerace.com are looking a little different these days, and along with the new branding we are working on more exciting changes to come. Yes, I said “we.” Three of us will be now be working on the site, and with that will come more of the gear reviews, race reports, and other posts you are used to finding at runbikerace.com.
The new site will have more of a website look and feel rather than a blog with a new style, new authors, and expanded content. We will provide more multimedia offerings in terms of video reviews and photography along with written content. What we cover will still mainly be focused on all disciplines of running and cycling (and multisport) in terms of gear and racing. The expanded breadth of content that will come with the addition of two new authors, will give a much broader range of experience, knowledge, and insight. Through each of our networks, we also hope to leverage contacts to share guest posts from time to time. We are excited for this to translate into wider ranging content and an appeal to many readers.
We are currently building the new website design, with a soft launch planned for late-November. The current timeline is to do a full launch of the new website at the start of January 2014.
