Different Pedal Strokes

"Different Pedal Strokes". Hey, that sounds like a good name for a book! And you could be one of its authors! So here's how it will work. Write a completely original 2000 word (approx.) essay, advancing some argument about cycling that no one could have even imagined, then email it to me (behoovingmoving AT gmail DOT com). You won't plagiarize, will you? I'm an academic and I will catch you :) And as such I might get in big trouble myself if I made improper use of your intellectual property. So let's agree trust cuts both ways in this little deal.
This could be us, my fellow cycle buff wordsmiths!

If anything decent comes in, I'll package it up as a book and pitch it to a few agents, in New York of course, or at least agents pretending to be in New York as I know some of those little rats do. We'll split the royalties according to word count. Actually, make that character count, so of you and me, I can use bigger words and thus maintain my moral claim to editorial credits.

If you don't have it in you to write, would you mind terribly posting this newsflash all over the web: Dr. Behooving seeks contributions to book about cycling. The most pseudo intellectual and unpredictable book of its kind.  Thank you so much.
