FAQ

  • I want to share something but where should I post it?

The posts at the top of the main page are 'Discussions' (or forum). This is the place to ask questions, seek advice, share tips, tell others about something that might affect us all or post that your bike got stolen. They are like a free-flowing conversation where members can comment on comments.

Blogs are to share a story, document a journey (physical or meta-physical), write an opinion piece or a place to explore ideas through writing an article. It doesn't have to be purely about cycling but community and society. Comments can be moderated or switched off and unlike 'discussions' are not threaded.

Groups are like niche websites for cycling groups or common interests like commuting or GPS devices. They have their own discussions and comments.

For Sale. Adelaide Cyclists has a fully functional classifieds section found under the Gear Shop menu and at the bottom of the homepage. You can sell your bikes or accessories here for free. Items posted for sale in the forum will be removed.

More info on where to post here.

  • Help! My bike was stolen. What can I do?

Post it as a discussion. Add as much detail as you can. Location, make, model, colour, extra kit and share it on Facebook and Twitter and ask members to do the same. Then look at the local Pawn Shops, laneway, rivers and drains.

Yes. Members can create groups that can contain forums, walls for posting, a text box for introduction or embedding code like YouTube videos or Google Maps to display your ride routes.

Members can send a message to all group members.
