Long Island, New York - May 24, 2005 – Pedal Pushers Online (http://www.pedalpushersonline.com) started life as a cycling club on Long Island in June of 2002. Harnessing the energies of its Principles, the club soon grew into one of the premier Web sites for cyclists. As more content and features have been offered, the Web site's traffic has exploded from a scant few hundred hits in an average month, to over 300,000 hits this month.

"With the kind of growth in readership we've experienced this past year, the sky is the limit!” said Daniel Neuburger, Vice President and Creative Director “And we are definitely setting our sights high."

The site has grown into one of the premier Bicycling e-Magazines on the Web. Flush with ride stories, anecdotes, and articles on training, fitness, events, gear reviews, and more. It has quickly become the best source of cycling info for everyday cyclists and elite athletes alike.
