    Triathlon Topic/Forum?

    Joe,

    Had any more thoughts about starting a triathlon topic? I had at one time thought it would be a good idea to have it as a sub-topic under road cycling, however with the additional emphasis on nutrition & training, it might make sense to give it its own topic.

    I've tried dedicated triathlon forums but I can't find any that are as well organized and helpful as BF.

    Count me in too! I agree with Jim that BF is much better organized than any of the tri-sites I've visited.

    Adding a Tri-Forum to the site would be awesome. I think that there are a lot of people on the site that would get a lot of use out of a forum like that.

    this idea was brought up a while ago but it never went anywhere.... I don't think it will go anywhere untill we speak to Joe directly...

    I agree, it would be a good idea to send Joe a PM in addition to posting here.

    I've noticed that a lot of new members get on BF and introduce themselves as interested in triathlons but end up not staying active perhaps because there is no tri topic.

    Kind of off the topic, but not quite-

    You may want to contact Purple Hayes via PM. He has a running forum, and he may be able to help you all out.

    Tri forum is an excellent idea. There is already a excellent complimentary forum `training and nutriition'
    Triathletes need to be dedicated, focused and usually very well informed about a lot of subjects and I think they could offer much of value to the community and visa versa the community has a lot to offer Triathletes.
    Guess that's basically a yes then :thumbup:
    I'm ready for something , but I don't know what!!..

    I think the tri forum would be a great idea as well.

    A tri forum is a great idea. I hope we can get one off the ground.

    I am a keen triathlete as well as a qualified fitness instructor and nutritionist and would welcome the opportunity to exchange ideas

    Done, if you find any threads that should be in the tri forum, report them, I'll get them moved over.
