Video: Dan Milner Rides Through the Winter in 'Chill Time'
Glad you made the show, and enjoyed it. Its a nice thing to do, sharing those anecdotes and photos — so many stories, so little time eh!— and even better when we can raise some cash for a worthy cause. That quick whip around raised 450 Euros for Save the Children's Ukraine appeal, thanks for coming along.

The indomitable Michel has led me through Annecy's forest before - you have some great trails! I'm game. And then after pedaling we can go add some work out by renting a pedalo on the lake for an hour..:-))

Video: Dan Milner Rides Through the Winter in 'Chill Time'
I am well known for my dislike of people generally and my non-social attitude. But I do like people coming to our valley - they give jobs to all the people in my community. But 2.5 million tourists per year do comes with a cost. But anyway, any disruption to the tranquility of the forest only came through my panting heavily as I pushed back up through the snow each time to press "record" and "stop" on the camera. And you are right, I am weird.

I tried pumping my tyres up until they bulged to 3" wide, but then they just popped off the rim FFS.

People have tried to say that, but I usually just talk over them :-)

Behind the Cover of the Beta Spring ’22 Issue
I fail to understand the Beta hatred here. Is this "Behind the Cover" post not interesting (and it's free right?) ? Is it the fact that the Beta team are highlighting the kind of content their mag runs, in case you missed it, and letting you decide if perhaps you might be interested in either diving in deeper or passing it by? How else do you get to see what the magazine has in its pages? Go to a library, browse it in Barnes and Noble perhaps? I cant see what the problem is here - the two media (one free and paid for wholly by advertising, and the other paid for advertising and subscribers) occupy different places in the media world — they offer different content, different types of stories, and a different experience (one looking at a screen, the other a physical item held in your hand). We are at a point where making a living as a freelance contributor (you know, we people that have filled the mtb media with interesting stories for decades) is almost impossible thanks to the low rates offered by online media (due to ad spend being spread too thinly across hundreds of online media), and the fact that the world now expects endless free content. But we have to ask who pays for that content to be produced in any quality way, or do we just settle for brand-backed content that is shared across every platform? I for one am super chuffed (or 'stoked') to be working with Beta - they have given over serious space in this latest issue to my story that could never go into such depth online on a site like PB. We are what we make, so we need to be careful about the beast we are creating by our choices. In years to come, I wonder if we will be lamenting the absence of deeper, thoughtful, inspiring stories after insisting that we want everything for free.

Behind the Cover of the Beta Spring ’22 Issue
@thingswelike: The reason for lack of substantial stories and features on online media is that generally they don't pay enough for freelancers to make a loving from, whether that's Vital or any other, so the amount of content is much dependent on staff resources. It's why most online is full of much the same content, supplied by the brands —it's just the model we have all helped create, by turning away from print (that paid contributors properly), to ever increasing demands for free content.
