  1. am mii de articole despre ciclism in engleza. imi placea cand era in romana. parea ca si romanii se intereseaza de ciclism. incercati sa fiti macar bilingv.

  2. Sorin A. on said:

    Nici eu nu inteleg de ce apar tot mai putine articole in limba romana. Totusi, eu cred ca cei mai multi cititori pe acest site sunt romani. In fine, nu pot sa spun decat pacat…

  3. Eu inclin spre cititorii straini care urmaresc/citesc acest blog si mai putin pe cei din Romania unde acest sport nu inregistreaza o masa mare dormica de informatii, la noi se practica privitul si mai putin detaliile de orice fel. 😉
    O imbunatatire a limbii engleze pe teme de ciclism nu strica nimanui. 😛

  4. Eu zic sa le scrie in ambele limbi.
    Propun ca pe baza de voluntariat, daca autorul le scrie in engleza cineva sa le traduca in romana si vice-versa. Apoi i le trimite autorului si el le publica. Se ofera cineva? Eu ma bag, dar nu pot promite la toate ca mai am si o mie de alte chestii de facut.

    Apoi, patronul Cafenelei sa faca doua mari categorii RO si EN pe coloana din dreapta astfel incat cine vrea sa-si aleaga sectiunea pe care doreste sa o citeasca.
