imo, the Commuting forum is very nice too --- that's where I've been spending most of my time these days -- come and check us out (if you haven't already)

I must say I'm really impressed with the civility and common courtesy shown on BF. The boating sites get real nasty, real quick. It's interesting to watch participants slog in the mud, but after a while it becomes real tedious.

I mostly am on the Clydesdale and over 50 Forums as I unfortunately qualify for both. The Road cycling forum can degenerate into a urinating contest occasionally. I attribute that to a lot of young guys with keyboard courage.

So, just a note to say it's nice to see productive, civil, informative discussions taking place.
I think we tend to be more personable in the Clydes & Athena’s forum, most likely because we do tend to catch some grief from other cyclist and society in general, so we tend to identify with each others problems somewhat more in this forum.

As far as 50+ forum, I think by the time you reach that age, there is a certain wisdom that most people achieve, to one degree or another, that one tends to start thinking about the whole War (metaphorically speaking) instead of the Battles, or Skirmishes in life…

Personally I really like the Classic & Vintage forum, and the Utility Cycling forum, and The Bicycle Mechanics Forum as well. Commuting is nice as well, but I can’t relate to it right now, so I feel like a poser posting there…
