Over the last decade, we have seen new cycle product trends duel in head-to-head battles, including those relating to wheel sizes, brake choices, and alloy versus carbon. And, despite historical referencesto electrically-assisted bicycles dating as far back as the 1890s, over the last three to four years, the industry has really seen the e-bike emerge as a serious category. .
In 2018, the Dragon Tour will take place at a brand new venue, the Glanusk Estate in the heart of the Brecon Beacons in South Wales. The Glanusk Estate is regularly used as a backdrop for TV shows including Top Gear, and this new site will now be home to a weekend of technically challenging cycling. An exclusive group of 750 riders will explore the quiet roads, tackling 100km-140km per day, and between 300km - 500km over the three-day period.
The e-bike market initially grew very slowly as a direct result of limited technology and clunky, poor-looking designs. A typical e-bike would weigh in excess of 30kg, assist you maybe ten miles (if you were lucky), and would, more often than not, be unreliable with very sketchy warranty support – all these things made bike dealers and consumers run a mile.
Don't worry everyone, the majority of the blokes who have been outed as sexual predators "won't forgive" themselves, so we can just pave over the whole thing. Because of course it's all still about them, so, case closed. Everyone go home now they aren't forgiving themselves...
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
