The worldwide community of cycling enthusiasts was given a new means for connecting on the web today, as Magnify.net announced that it has been chosen by Rodale's Bicycling magazine to create the video-search, -posting and -sharing site for Bicycling.com, the official web site of the world's biggest cycling magazine. Using video technology from Magnify.net, cycling enthusiasts can now search the web and collect cycling videos on Bicycling.com. Riders can also upload their own videos, share and view videos made by fellow enthusiasts, allowing visitors to become part of a video driven community.
Magnify.net's platform provides video discovery, aggregation and organization for sites large and small across the web.
"Bringing this user-generated content to our site allows us to engage with our readers on a completely new level," said Stephen Madden, editor-in-chief of Bicycling magazine. "By working with Magnify.net, we'll be able to interact with our readers through new and exciting content."
Magnify.net provides visitors with a unique ability to participate in Bicycling.com's Internet-based "video channel." Visitors can upload their own videos directly to the Bicycling.com video channel or they can search for videos they like on popular web sites like YouTube, Google, Yahoo, Revver, and Blip.tv, and simply link them to them through Bicycling.com. Visitors can also vote on their favorite videos, creating a collection of the best cycling videos from across the web. The site has already amassed more than 800 videos, making it an extraordinary destination for the two-wheeler crowd.
"There are few communities that are more passionate or excited about sharing their sport than the cycling community," says Magnify.net CEO Steve Rosenbaum. "We're thrilled that Bicycling.com chose us to help bring such high quality and inspiring videos to their site."
The user-generated cycling videos can be found at http://www.bicycling.com.
Magnify.net powers more than 3,000 video web channels, including The Weather Channel's viewer weather reports, and has been growing dramatically since the launch of its beta just three months ago.
