Dennis The Cyclist on YouTube

Maybe you heard it (and watched it already!), maybe it’s breaking news for you: I started my own YouTube channel.

YouTube is a great platform to share my “everday” bicycle life with everyone around the world and thus, reach even more people than I do already through my blog. I’ve always been interested in making videos about cycling, but I only did short clips for social media and stuff like this.

Most of the videos so far are short three or four minute videos, about my favorite roadbike spots in Dortmund. I’m spending a lot of time everyday working on new ideas for upcoming videos and at the same time, I’m learning a lot of new things with every published video, for example I would’ve never thought I’d catch myself talking in front of a camera.

Right now though, my channel is as small as it could possibly be and I’m struggling to reach barely anyone at all. I know there’s small progress already, I can see it in the data – which is ablsoutely awesome in YouTube Studios by the way – but just like starting up this blog three years ago, starting something new always take time. Trust me when I say, that this was a tough lesson … again …

But I don’t let small numbers discourage me from sharing my bicycle life. After all, this is a free time activity, it’s my hobby, it’s part of my recreation, if you want to call it like this. I don’t necessarily need to be successful in order to have fun. But of course, I do like to get a bit of approval from time to time, you know…

So, what I’m trying to say is: If you’re into watching videos about cycling and you’ve got a spare minute or two or three left to spend, I would appreciate it a lot, if you would check out my YouTube channel:

Hope you enjoy watching this video!

Dennis The Cyclist is still alive

Hey everyone,

here’s just a quick reminder, that dennisthecyclist.blog is still alive. Over the last couple of weeks / months, I spent a lot of work developing a new layout regarding the content as well as the design.

The plan looks something like this: I’m going to focus on displaying my photography a bit more than I used before, because personally, this is the most fun part and something that I really like to share.

However, of course there will still be blogposts, just like this one, to make sure everyone of you will not miss out on new content and the latest news…don’t forget about your roots, right?

I’ll be posting about the new categories on this website in the following blogposts. In the meantime, I’m really curious to find out what you think about it. What’s your first impression of the site? What do you think should still be added? These are the things I’d like to know more about, because I can’t answer them myself. So, every feedback is welcome and appreciated!

Oh yeah, before I forget, I wanted to credit Laura from Squaremeat a lot. Your reaction to my first comment on one of your articles after months of absence inspired this title. Thanks for that, Laura…
