Alexander, if you did mind me copying your post, I would have removed it. If you peruse group Look For Cyclists, you will notice that I am putting together reference material for cyclists regarding collisions and near misses, which unfortunately seem to be too common.
Hi Alexander, If you're still willing to help with the crankshaft for my trek, please let me know what details you need to check whether you have something suitable for my bike. You may need to step me through what you mean by things like square taper bottom. I can send photos if that will help. The temporary fix by dad's mate is kaput and I'm off the road at present :(. Really appreciate your offer.
Dude! I haven't been on my bike in almost 3 weeks, let alone a long ride on a mtn bike and you're out telling people that I'm super fit! You have me scared shitless for this ride, and I'm very much considering piking! :P
It is a funny thing that when I set up the site, just after the TDU, I thought the roadies would really be in it. I started a few sub-groups to kick things off but the Road Riders (and even the MTB riders) are not that busy. The popularity of this site has been in the advocacy, long haul, cargo and urban riding.
I ride roadies and do the hills and will be riding in the TDU. Beefing up the road element if you are into it would be great. You could do it as a regular blog (do you read cyclingtipsblog.com) You could also start your own 'group' calling it training etc so you can catch the TDU and Amy's ride people as well as the triathalon riders (there are a few).
Maybe the best thing might be to do a forum or blog post (there is not real difference except blogs are more editable later) talking about your interest and that you are thinking of a group and what it would cover and go from there. You can show maps and pictures etc in a group. Once a group is set up if someone posts into it it automatically sends and email to all group members so they stay connected.
Let me know if you need any help.
Thanks for your interest. We are planning a meet up very soon - hopefully in the next few weeks.
I/we hope you get something from the site and you can contribute with some posts or by adding some pictures or videos (you can add interesting YouTube clips easily). You can join, or create your own, subgroups. Actually, surprisingly, we haven't had a lot of activity in the road riders groups so some action in there would be great.
Thanks for answering the sign up questions. The beer one is simply about filtering out the non-Adelaide people (spammers).
