Southern California Ride Group Thread

OK so I'm starting one for you guys to use. Just for the So Cal Ride group - you have your own thread!!!!

Would be great to move all your discussions here so easy to find... in the jungle of all the other threads.

Feel free to report any threads that are in the Road Cycling forum to the moderators, I'll move them here as they are reported to me. I don't have much free time to hunt down the old threads.

You have a bit too much free time on your hands, huh?

We should try to make sure to get the original OC BikeForums ride (last Nov, I think) in here.

Found it. Here is the OC ride thread that I spoke of, that to the best of my knowledge is the ride that started it all off. How did I find it? Easy. If you sort by number of replies, a lot of the SoCal ride threads are on page 1.

[EDIT] The above link was the planning thread. Go down a few more pages (sorting by post count), and the ride reports and pics are here.

[EDIT 2] The Sept 2 ride thread started this afternoon is already on page 7 by post count despite being fewer than 12 hours old!

Cool! I see the mods are starting to populate our little corner of BikeForums with our glorious historical documents!

here, here is one to be moved here... and Jason is dead on with that search method... because here, here, here, and here are all in the first half page.

and Cali, I believe that the talk about a regional forum started here..

but did anyone actually do anything (any begging!) to get it done!????

we'd even been talking about it recently in other threads! i was just showing that it didn't all the sudden POP UP.... it was being discussed and those of uw online earlier yesterday knew it was coming and were looking for it!

Cali - go back to the CB thread - I put a note there that the thread you and Brandy had been asklng for is now available - then Chimvee and Voltman beat me back to it!!!!! Well maybe I beat Voltman back.

PS - shouldn't the CB thread be moved over here as well?

Others can come visit our section of the universe. I figure we can occasionally post a short thread in the roadie forum with links to all our glamorous events that other regions lack. Just imagine... "First week of winter SoCal ride reports" for a thread title. Post a link to a bunch of pics of sunshine and beaches as we ride by midday in short-sleeved jerseys. They'll want to kill us.

Or, if we continue to dominate the scene, people might just lurk around the SoCal subforum all the time anyway just to see what's up.

By the way, I think the Hawaiians will have an identity crisis. They've been placed in the "Pacific Northwest".

I feel our ride report/pic threads should initially be posted in the main cycling forum due to the tremendous amount of interest and traffic they generate .......just look at the number of views they receive....lots of members outside of So Cal must be viewing them.
And if the mods feels they should be moved over here later on, so be it...

That would work with me. I'm going to move quite a few of the old ride report threads from the road cycling forum to this one, but leave a re-direct behind.

I have no problem with you starting a ride-report thread in the road forum, then asking it to be moved to this one 2 - 3 days later.

As a non-SoCal'er, I love checking the threads about your rides. If only the group of lazies that live in my area ( ) would have the same organizational skills, life would be a blast.

Oh yeah, I have no problem looking into the regional sub-forums to find out what's going on, either. Plus, with the search functions back on, clicking on View New Posts at the top of the screen usually gets me to the threads quicker.
