Help! the Daily Peloton
An open letter to our readers and friends... The Daily Peloton needs your
Celebrating our tenth year!
The Daily Peloton comes to you free every day. However, our current
advertising revenue is not sufficient to cover our server and other costs that
make the site possible. We would like to continue creating the DP as we have the
last nine years; with your support it will be possible.
To be completely frank it's been a tougher year than most; not surprisingly
due to the current economic conditions. We hate to ask; but when big races like
tour of Missouri have to ask for donations and others disappear from the pro
calendar. Our server rents, and other expenses are due July first, so we need
your help today.
If you would like to support our continuing efforts to bring you unique and
entertaining coverage of races like the Tour de France, please click on the
Paypal link below to and send a donation to support the Daily Peloton. We
appreciate help and support. (More below)

About the Daily Peloton: The Daily Peloton
was launched in Spring of 2001 in England as: thedailypeloton.com on the Rivals
sports network. Abruptly losing our home there we re-launched the site in March
of 2002 as dailypeloton.com with a core of writer-owners driven by a
passion for the sport with the intention of bringing a fresh look at the sport
from writers on 5 continents who are long time fans and racers. Over the years
we have published over 19,000 articles and many more photographs and photo
galleries in our continuing coverage of the sport.
Our goals were to bring timely coverage of the breadth of the sport:. the
organizations, teams and races and riders that create the drama and spectacle
that inspired us to ride and become devoted fans. We also sought to enlighten
new fans and help the sport grow to achieve greater prominence. We also
endeavored to be interactive on the site, being one of the first to offer a
message board, a forum and chat room so fans around the world could meet and
discuss the sport and keep an open ear to our readers to deliver coverage they
We grew and became one of the top 4 sites on the internet, well placed on
search engines; each year for the first 7 years we had to upgrade to faster
servers and greater bandwidth. All of this takes time and money to create. With
this growing popularity and success we hoped we might actually earn enough
income through advertising revenue to cover our expenses for servers,
photographs, and some allowance for travel expenses.
As a group we always are open to add new writers and photographers, providing
a framework and help for them to sharpen their talents and add their unique view
of the sport. All and all, it has been an adventure. one we hope continues long
into the future with your help and feedback.
