    Joe Gardner, the Man

    Joe Gardner, "The Man..."

    Joe has brought together all these cyclists from just about everywhere. None of us knew each other. Now we all are very well acquainted. Like old friends.

    Not too long ago, the only commuting cyclists I knew I spoke to only at a red light. And that was very rare.

    I knew very little about all the varied folks on these forums, now it seems I know so many I can't do them all justice.

    Thanks.

    I agree, Pete. What a fantastic forum this is! It has given me the opportunity to learn so much about biking, and help me to get more enjoyment out of my rides. And, I found out I have a lot of friends who share their considerable experience with me, and to my surprise, they even take the time to listen to me once in a while! How cool!

    I heartily agree about the support and friendship. Another thing I really appreciate about this forum is the ease of posting and navigation. Anybody who's tried different forums on the Internet knows that it ain't always this easy! Thanks to Joe and to the Jelsoft people for that!

    P. S. Not that some things couldn't still be improved...

    Thanks everyone! However this forum would basicly suck, if it was not for all the great members here, so a big thanks goes out to the almost 1300 members of the forum

    Joe's right, it's the memebers that make the Forum...

    Here's a tip, posters--take it from a "Sumo Champ:"

    What does fishing and biking have in common?

    Let's keep it interesting, folks, the next best thing to being there is talking about it!

    Well said Spankys The best thing about these forums is that Joe keeps the flamers and spammers away. Not every forum on the WWW can manage that!

    That's all I can manage, I'm on holidays and am having trouble keeping up with all the posts, not having as much access to a computer all the time.
