Velo Cape Breton E-Newsletter

Shelley Porter took over the editorship of Velo Cape Breton’s enewsletter in February of 2014. She writes about the experience:

“For a little over two years, I had the great privilege of being editor of Velo Cape Breton Bicycling Association’s enewsletter. The newsletter is published weekly, on Thursday, and emailed to over 500 subscribers. While I was the editor, the Cape Breton Community Post  put out a call for regular submissions from community groups anywhere on Cape Breton Island. Velo Cape Breton answered the call, and our enewsletter editorial (text and photos provided by me), rides and events schedule, and activities report had to be submitted each Tuesday night to the editor of the Post. It was a grueling schedule, but great fun and a real challenge to my creativity. When I left Sydney, the Board of Velo Cape Breton put together all of the editorials from my tenure and presented the bound collection to me, complete with photo illustrations and thematic quotes, at my going-away party. I will treasure the book and the experience always”.
