Other (Gasp!) bicycling forums or sites?

Anyone have any good reading at other bicycling forums - mostly interested in recreational road and bike path type stuff (i.e. not MTN - too old for that )

A more reasonable and well rounded forum than this one is hard to find. But in the interest of fairness try-

I like this forum a lot - it's just not as busy as some of the other forums I read in my other hobbies so I get a little withdrawl every now and then, especially since it's still nice enough to ride down here in Houston

The Cyber Cyclery at cyclery.com used to be a very active forum, but they suffered a major outage and most of the regulars drifted over to here. Its been pretty barren at the cyclery ever since.

Not as busy? My god! The other forums you visit must have an incredible amount of posts per minute. This is one of the busiest forums I know of.

This is by far the best. Here are some others I visit once in awhile.

www.cyclingforums.com
http://weightweenies.starbike.com/phpBB2/
http://www.serotta.com/forum/

and roadbikereview.com as noted above.

It took me three weeks to find this forum. By far this is the most complete cycling forum I have found online.

Occasionaly I will visit biclying.com's community board to see what people are talking about buying. Mainly so I can learn about parts (i'm new)

One of the best things about this forum, aside from the people is the way it is put together. Very easy to navigate. If Joe ever changes it, I would likely like it a LOT less.

Hey CRUM, I like that "Keep it 'tween the ditches".
I'll have to use that on my wife next time she thinks I'm drifting in the car. I usually tell her "horns mean right, gravel means left".

That motto is a tip of my hat to the many years I spent driving tractor trailers. Back in the hey days of Citizen Band. It also has come to reflect my basic mantra for making it safely from cradle to grave. And it works in the woods on a bike too.

I searched the net for weeks for some kind of forum that had people like me who liked bikes, i found some other forums but none of them were anything amazing. Then one day i was typing in bike keywords and all of a sudden as if by magic there was this search result at the very top, "bikeforums", and it called out to me "ChAnMaN..ChAnMan click on me, click on me ChAnMaN". so i did and my life hasnt been the same sence.

I've found that ,to some measure, bike path & rec cycling is not the focus of most forums. These are
family and senior activites. So if it's bike path info you want/need contact your state's transportion
office for info as I did. My state (Illinois) has great bike path maps of trails and activities for family/path
rides along with a strong cyclist organisations (found on the web) to promote cycling. They will be your
best resource for the kind of info you seek.

Sadly, most forum dicussions will, in time, degenerate into discussions about equipment and which bicycle
is best/better for given activity.

All the best.

This forum is great because it is not dominated by roadies in $3,000 bikes riding $300 biking clothes. You can actually have rational discussions on department store bikes, stealth camping, commuting with clunkers and such. It is a great forum.
