Pays $0.05-$0.15/word for 500-1,200 words.


“We LOVE photos. They have to be high resolution, very large format jpgs, meaning we can’t use anything under 1 mg. to be considered for the cover, the shot has to be vertical (portrait) or very, very large.” Pays $50/photo for interior photos, and $125/cover photo.


“We prefer an email query. I usually don’t have time to answer phone calls or am not in the office. Really think through your pitch: Telling me that a place to go bike riding is “cool” with no real information won’t cut it. Explain the cool factor, describe the place, help the readers feel what it’s like to ride there. Make it personal: Explain why you like riding there.
