We’ve been running our Monday night #MTBMonday Twitterchats for nearly three years, and after much deliberation, we’ve decided it’s time to hang up the cleats.
We’ve had some brilliant conversations, covered all manner of MTB topics and given away a pile of prizes from companies that were good enough to sponsor the chats– Broken Riders, RaceFace, Healthy Nibbles, Skratchlabs, Selle Italia, Trail42, Seriously Silly Socks, Velotastic, The Sufferfest, Anthony Oram, Rude Health, MBR Magazine, Bristol Butter, Kaboodle Bags, Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery, Emma Cornes, Hookit, Fibrax, Muc-Off, Lucas Bike Lights, MTB Batteries, Juicy Lubes, Od Designs, Flare Clothing, Atomic Burger, Greasbugs and Ducksmart to name but a few….
But don’t be down-hearted, Twitter folk, we’ve come up with something new to keep you amused on those lonely Monday nights. We’re calling it #MTBMoment.
We found that some of the best #MTBMonday chats involved you sending in your photos – pics of your bike, pics of your bike injuries, your best bike bodges, the best trails for your bike, and… your bike. Each Friday, from now on, we’re going to give you a theme for your photographs – you’ll have all weekend to take a relevant snap and tweet it to us - and then on Monday night at 8pm UK time, we’ll pick the winner. There’ll be prizes – we hope - and possibly retweets from a big MTB name…. watch this space.
Kicking off the prizes for our maiden #MTBMoment is Cranked – a year’s subscription to their new MTB magazine for your best photo. This week’s theme is ‘Animal’ – we want a pic of your bike plus an animal. Be creative, be inventive, be original!
To recap then: a photo of your bike + ‘animal’, tweeted to us by Monday at 8pm UK time, with the hashtag #MTBMoment. You have your orders, MTBers – let’s go!
