Ride for the Feast community, I know you have stories. I’ve heard many of them. You have stories about the first time you did Ride for the Feast, the first time you had to SAG, the first time you realized you needed a steady supply of Fritos if you were going to ride 100 miles, and more. Now you can share these stories for the glory of seeing your name in print and the warm feeling of helping raise funds for the Feast! Check it out:
“TaleSpin is a new zine about bike riding. Whether you ride Road, Fixed, Mountain, BMX, or Penny Farthing, and whether you ride daily or not since the banana seat went out of style, we want your stories, essays, poetry, photography and other artwork. The theme of our inaugural issue is ‘First Times’. Tell us about your first bike ride, your first crash, your first spin class, your first flat tire, your first bike race, your first...anything, as long as it happened on, under, near, or because of a bike.
All submissions will be considered. Articles (100 – 1,000 words) should be sent by e-mail (aberrebeATgmailDOTcom) as attached Word documents. Image files should be approximately 5x7 inches, 300+ dpi (.JPG or .TIF format). All contributors will receive a byline for their work and a complimentary copy of the issue in which their work appears. The deadline for submissions is Friday, February 19, 2010.
TaleSpin is being produced by Team Atomic, a Baltimore-based cycling team that rides to raise funds for Moveable Feast of Maryland. All proceeds from sales of TaleSpin will be donated to Moveable Feast’s Ride for the Feast. TaleSpin will be available locally for purchase at Atomic Books, through the Team Atomic website (www.teamatomic.org), and at area bike shops.
