Okay, I'm now inviting any Mod who would like to comment to explain why certain threads are moved from So Cal. I received notice yesterday that my "Fluid on the Bike" Thread was moved to the Training/Nutrition forum. I put it in So Cal as an addition to the "on the bike food" thread that dealt predominantly with food/gels. Yet, the "fluid" thread was moved to Training/Nutrition (and I was told someone asked it to be moved) and not the other thread (not that I'm advocating that it should be. I feel neither thread should be moved).
So, going forward, since this region has formed a community (I think it's safe to say that now with the numerous rides that have and will take place as well as social get-togethers), ground rules should be explained. I was under the impression that we were no longer being monitored to ensure that we only stick to subjects related to southern cal (which is pretty much impossible) or bike related (in which case, I think fluids while riding is a valid thread topic). As I explained in an email back to the Mod who emailed me, when I post topics in this thread it is to get advice specifically from other so cal riders with whom I have ridden or may ride, and who understand the climate and rides in this area. If I want advice from all cyclists on Bike Forums, I go outside the So Cal regional forum (e.g. Road Cycling, Long Distance Cycling, etc.).
I've asked that the Fluid thread be returned to the So Cal region as well. I think it only fair given the numerous topics in this region, that my thread remain here as well.
So, is there someone who would like to weigh in?
