Your velobeats link opened up multiple annoying pop-up windows. I hope you didn’t just give me a virus.

Thanks to Kristi and the BikeRumor crew for highlighting our 24 Hours to Twilight ultra-endurance cycling documentary. The documentary will follow John, Mark, Holly, and now, Felix (our latest addition to the micro-peloton) as they race against the clock to ride from central Florida to Athens, GA to check out the Athens Twilight Criterium this April, 2012.

We would certainly appreciate your support for the documentary and have a Kickstarter project going at: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/drivenbypete/24-hours-to-twilight

If cash is tight (and, in this economy, cash is pretty tight all the way around), but you’d still like to stay in the loop on the latest happenings, check out our Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/24HoursToTwilight
and our blog at: http://24hrs2twilight.com/

Thanks, and happy riding!

Ricky, as far as we can tell, Velobeats does not serve up any ads. We would never intentionally link our readers to a website that would be harmful to your computer.

It is most likely your ISP or firewall not liking the site redirect I have. I am working on moving to my own full server soon, but for now I am borrowing site servers from someone…which won’t let me DNS to the subdomain.

Trust me…it is just a wordpress with some soundcloud flash widgets.

Thanks again Kristi.
