    Back To the Mothership

    Well, socalbikeforums.com has been down for a day with some kind of error message from the hosting company. I would have expected the site admin to jump on this right away. Since he didn't, that may be the end of the line for that site. Won't post any RIP's until we go a few more days like that.

    Socalbikeforums.com has fizzled out in the last couple of years. There doesn't seem to be enough members posting to keep the site up and going. I will most likely become a RIP.

    You are probably right. There were only about 4 of us posting regularly. The original group jumped to that forum when BF was having all kinds of issues years ago. Maybe some of the others will see this post and return back to BF.

    Still down today.

    Hey Herb, how are you doing?

    Are you coming over for Cruising the Conejo in a few weeks?

    Some of the posters on the other forum are from out of the area. I guess we'll lose touch with them now. I have no contact info for anyone.

    Sounds like fun, but the family schedule prevents me from riding until 11 this Sat, so I hope to join you all next time you're climbing again.
