Visiting Bourg d'Oisans (at the foot of the Alpe d'Huez) any time soon? Prompt.cc (https://cycolo.gy/31917) both sell and hire bikes there, and even have their own bike range...

Some nice Merckx World Champ shoes I found in Belgium, wonder if Cav has a pair yet?
Merckx 525 world champ shoes You didn't know Mercx had a line of cycling shoes? Neither did I, and he doesn't really, they are just for those times when you can't ride... I found them in a normal sho...

Probably the most frequently requested feature has been a mobile version of Cycology. Well, we went one step further, and made the entire site 'responsive'. This means the site will display in a way appropriate to your screen size, from a smartphone all the way up to the huge TV in your lounge.

Various elements like logos, images and columns scale in proportion to your screen width, whilst other less vital parts of the site even appear/disappear when space is at a premium. Noone misses out - everything you can do on your PC you can do on your phone (with the exception of uploading photos on iPhones/iPads - sorry, blame Apple!). Try resizing your desktop browser window, or rotating your phone or tablet to see what we mean...

We could bang on about media queries, HTML5 and various other technologies we have used, but most of you probably won't care - just try it out!

Here's a sample - viewing your Stream and posting updates, in this case from an iPhone:

Fancy promoting something cycling-related? We will today start highlighting Cycology Pages created by interesting cycling-related organisations, clubs, blogs, businesses, events and more.

If you'd like yours to be featured, just make sure you have created a Cycology Page (you'll need your own personal account first of course). Make sure you have added a profile image for the Cycology Page, complete the profile with as much information as you can and start posting...

One more new feature before the weekend... Calling all cycling bloggers and cycling websites with an RSS feed!

You can now update a Cycology Page using your feed, taking the leg work out of publishing the latest news or blog post from your club, event, blog, business etc.

To create a Cycology Page, create an account in your own name first, then once you have logged in, choose your Page type from the list under 'Create a page for your...' in the main menu.

Once you have created your Page, click the 'Edit Settings' button at the top of the Page profile, then 'One-Click Accounts'. It sounds more complicated than it actually is... You should see an option that looks like the image below...

We've created a few example Cycology Pages for a number of cycling news providers, so take a look at a couple of these to see how this works in practice:

CyclingNews.com: https://cycolo.gy/1791

Velonation: https://cycolo.gy/1800

If you need any help, don't hesitate to ask!

We've been on the quiet side recently, adding features to, and improving, Cycology - but now its time to let you know about some of the changes...

One of them will help you let us know what you think about the others, so let's start there! We'll let you know about a couple of others before the weekend too.

We've made changes to how you make suggestions, tell us about bugs, and ask for help. You still access this in the same place - look for the bright blue 'Help & Beta Feedback' button, top-right on the site - however, there's now a complete support site that is really easy to use.

So, don't hold back, let us know what you think, suggest some great ideas and ask away!

Now that parcours doesn't look so fun immediately after Christmas, but May is a long time away...

Good luck to anyone participating in the Raid Corsica - if you are taking part (or even if you're not), why not follow the Raid Corsica Page on Cycology...

The cycling social network.
Introduction
Cycology is the social network dedicated to cycling.

Create your free Cycology account...

We're currently in beta, but don't let that worry you, it just means you'll be one of the first on board! It also means we're polishing things, not everything we will offer is yet available, and you may see the odd bug or two.

Integrated with your mainstream social networks, Cycology allows you to post once, everywhere*, provides a single location for cycling clubs, events, blogs, organisations and others to be found and followed, and allows you to focus on your passion - cycling.

* When Google+ launch the required API features you'll be able to post updates here too.

Why?
It is now common to have friends, and other sources of information you are interested in following, spread across the several major social networks. Nowhere is this more true than in cycling, with countless websites, blogs, riders, clubs, events, magazines and companies located in various places around the internet.

Cycology is there to help you bring all this together around cycling, and to add some extra, cycling-specific goodness.

Why not link your personal Cycology and Google+ profiles? You can add Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn too if you like.

Cycology Pages => Google Pages
You can also create Cycology Pages which can be linked to Google+ Pages (as well as a Twitter and Facebook Pages).

Many different Page types are supported including Club, Blog, Event, Retailer etc. If you don't fit an existing type, sign up anyway and we'll create one to suit!

Use your Page to drive more traffic to your website or blog, to communicate with new or existing customers or members, to promote an event, product or book, its up to you.

Cycology also provides Pages with an easy to use social Discussions app - a new take on the traditional forum, making a Page a useful tool for managing a group or club using the latest social networking technology.

You can currently post to Facebook Pages and Twitter to save you time and effort when getting the word out, and when Google+ support this, we'll add their Pages too. We're currently working on enabling RSS feed import from your existing site or blog.

Once you have a personal account its easy to create one or more Cycology Pages.

Where are we going?
Its early days, but Cycology can already be used as a social communications platform in its own right, and as a tool to help you publish updates once, yet reach the major mainstream networks (for both personal profiles and entity profiles like Facebook Pages and soon Google Pages).

Stay with us, and support us by joining in. We've got all sorts of plans, so watch this space... Even better, circle it!
