Aaron, over at Steepclimbs, had a great (and cheap!) idea for the new blog name – change the url address at the same time. I tried to get ‘viciouscycle’, ‘theviciouscycle’, ‘vicious-cycle’, and a few others, before resigning myself to the fact that I am not that creative after all, and in fact, it’s a pretty popular name. The best I could do was:
Incoming links should redirect to this address, but it would be faster if you updated your links (if you have any – on your blog, for example) to reflect the new name. Until life takes another turn, I promise I won’t be making any more changes!

And you could keep your format and content, presumably without weeks of work. Is this because you use a wordpress platform?
Maybe, Suze. It was easy and only cost $18/year for the registration and mapping. Thinking about making a move over here…?
Well done, Gerry, and I’m not just saying that because I planted the seed (wink). By the way, did you notice that Haute Route tweeted your website?
The idea was very timely, thanks again. Yeah, I did notice that. They must be hurting for content 😉
And there I was just congratulating myself on the fact that your change of name wouldn’t mean that I ought to change my link. Are you sure you aren’t going to change it again? There are all sorts of possibilities: ‘spin cycle’ for your winter training,’economic cycle’ for your less expensive tours, ‘unicycle’ for any research projects you might get PhDs to do on your behalf, ‘water cycle’ for posts about going out on a pedalo or in bad weather…..etc etc etc. I don’t want to keep on having to change your link at my age. I’ll get confused.
I apologize, TP, but on the up side, thanks to you I have the next 20 years or so covered for blog names!
And recycle if you rehash all your previous articles….sorry.
