CyclingBuddy.com is a completely free website that allows its members to find other riders to go cycling with. The website, which only launched on 1st March 2012, has attracted close to 2,000 cyclists who between them have already logged well over 60,000 miles and shared over 400 cycling routes.
The partnership will see CRC sponsor The CyclingBuddy Monthly Activity Reports that are sent to every member at the end of each month.
Damien Duggan, CRC’s Marketing Manager said: “CyclingBuddy is a brilliant concept and one that we are proud to be supporting through our partnership. Cycling is a great social sport with great health benefits, and CyclingBuddy provides the perfect platform to get more people into cycling who might otherwise never give it a go.”
The CyclingBuddy platform is all-inclusive, whether you are just starting out or you take cycling a little more seriously. You can find all abilities, levels, ages and cycling disciplines represented on the site; from recreational cyclists to your more advanced, everyone is welcome. The site has some great tools too, some of the most popular are the ability to log and track your cycle rides, plan and share cycling routes and a rapidly growing forum.
Tony Piedade, site founder & CEO said: “CyclingBuddy is proving a great success. The level of engagement on the site is fantastic. We are determined to keep the site free and that of course means working with some great partners willing to support us. CRC offer a great range of products across a broad spectrum of cycling abilities, so it’s a great fit for our membership demographic.”
