Can we have a "local" forum for

"Glorious Ride" threads?

Thanks.

I may get it added to the censor list. How does this sound: "Did anyone get a ******* ride today in DC?"

Alternative proposal: Can we send all the "Glorious Ride" threads off to the triathlon or some other forum I don't read?

I find the phrase Metro Area most objectionable.

How about "Did anyone get a ******* ride today in DC *********?"

Better yet, "Anyone get *******, anywhere, today?"

It might be more interesting to a wider group than the regional "glorious stuff".

Almost like a "How was your ride?" thread.

it sounds so familiar.

Think about how many regions that would have to cover. It would be beyond insane to maintain.

We could put those threads in the mountain bike racing forum. There have only been two posts in the last 10 days.

Thinking out loud. Impossible task for BF moderators. But they could sanction other sites to do the local thing ... like craigslist. Give 'em the phpBB template kit (graphics? censor list?) so they're set up to look a little like BF, and provide a link forum or page to link to all the affiliates. A disclaimer at the top so people realize that the local is run by different folk. Keep it strictly focused on local rides, events, conditions, stores ... so it doesn't get out of hand. SoCal, for instance, has a lot of computer savvy guys/gals ... there must be someone interested ...

Here's an idea, thread consolidation:
Anyone else carry a gun that smells like weed on their glorious ride in the * metro area?
