^^ More like it.
I've never done a GVBR, but I looked at the price a few times... which made it even less likely that I'll do one in the future.
After a few years as an active cyclist, befriending lots of other like minded individuals, it would be pretty easy to organise your own week riding bikes and blowing $1k per person (plus drinking money).

My gut instinct has been telling me that the Forums have again slowed significantly over the last 6 months and what little raw data is available tends to verify this. What do you think? As always, opinions, comments & discussion are very welcome. It's our Forum - if we don't use it, it's gunna fade away

Personally, I've never taken a interest in BNA, but I know a few members here do. In our original poll "other websites" never rated highly and I don't recall much discussion about them. Methinks issues like too many arguments and hand held devices are secondary problems. The true basic underlying cause is lack of interest in the Forums by the BV organisation.

If I didn't have the forum bookmarked, I'd have a hard time finding it through the B(N)(V) website. How are newbies supposed to find us?
