Cycling organisations have been invited by the CTC and Sustrans to get involved with the promotion of The Millennium Festival of Cycling (incorporating Ride the Net)
CoBRs doing its bit by plugging the fest on its website: a section devoted to the CTC/BA/Sustrans week of cycling has just been uploaded to the new CoBR site. This includes festival background information, key dates and events, and breaking news. It also includes links to Sustrans and the CTC.
Laurie Sedman, MD of CoBR, wants all CoBR members to get involved: Because we believe the Festival should be about riding bikes and not fixing them, unlike other organisations, CoBR has launched Dr Bike type clinics to take place the week before the Festival starts. Our members are already committing to providing this service to cyclists throughout the country.
CoBRs website also includes a section on careers in
the cycle industry. It explains the various options open to would be employees and offers training packages including the recently launched Cycle Maintenance and Repair Course and CoBRs Retail Sales and Customer Care Course. Sedman says this section will be posted with sits-vac ads and the advertising of candidates who have attended the CoBR courses.
Quite apart from the public content of the site theres a members-only section, accessible by password. This contains all the agreements, details of products and services available to CoBR members as well as e-mail ordering of marketing materials and the ability to book training. online.
Sedman says the site is receiving over 500 hits per day.
