Colorado Springs, CO, June 21, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Terapad.com and USA Cycling have partnered to offer free websites to cycling clubs across the United States in addition to a 10% discount on all premium services.
Terapad.com is the next generation of online publishing solutions, developed by SiteJourney Ltd. Until now, only corporate businesses could afford to build and own websites with all the latest web 2.0 features integrated, but Terapad.com allows anyone to set up their own website in a matter of minutes. Terapad has taken the world of website creation by storm and, despite only being around for a year, already hosts over 100,000 websites.
Cycling clubs across the country have been searching for ways to get a professional and affordable online presence. USA cycling took up its cause and searched for a partner in this arena, and chose Terapad as its partner.
"We are delighted that a prestigious organization such as USA Cycling could see the potential for partnering with Terapad,” said Justin Dean, CEO. “We’ll do everything we can to bolster this exciting relationship. We believe we have an excellent product that will bring many cycling clubs into the online world and are proud to support the efforts of USA Cycling in doing so. Our design team has created five templates specifically for cycling clubs, and we intend to produce more. These act as a great starting point and are easily customizable. We are very much looking forward to working with USA Cycling and its members and will be listening carefully to feedback from the cycling community."
Any club signing up using the unique code (given to all USA Cycling members and affiliates) will get a basic but fully functional website completely free of charge. If they choose to upgrade, then USA Cycling has arranged for a special 10% discount off all upgrade costs. Withthis special discount in place, it simply isn't possible to get a Terapad website cheaper anywhere else.
A free Terapad website can provide cycling clubs with a vast array of up-to- date features including:
1.) Organize a cycling team or club – Use the forum, blog and events calendar to arrange meetings, training rides and races.
2.) Sell bike related equipment and merchandise – Terapad comes with a free shop that you can use to sell anything, commission free.
3.) Accept donations – Receive donations to support your team or a good cause you are raising money for.
4.) Engage an active online community – Join hundreds of cyclists setting up Terapad sites and monitor cycling posts in the community section.
5.) Discuss cycling news and events – write news bulletins that will be sent out across the internet and link to other cycling websites.
All of the websites are powered by Terapad's unique content management system which means each website is fully customizable. Personalizing your site is easy. You can upload images of your bike and cycling team, plus you can use the web pages to attract new members and offer handy training hints or bike repair tips.
