I would like to invite cycling advocacy groups such as the UK's venerable CTC to join us on bicycles.se.
To do so would be a lot easier if we had a standard article in press release format that we could just email out. Then the likes of the CTC could simply post the press release to their news blog (as well as read it themselves).
If we do what other people wanting PR do, i.e. a Press Release then it makes it easy for recipients to simply cut and paste from it to get their own article together. We have to make it easy for them this way or else we won't be competing properly for their attention.
