although there are several rides/ events organised off forum which makes people feel excluded when they are subsequently discussed on open forum: Case in point: "break of wind tour".
All these comments about "Sven" - which is a private joke I would assume?
Sven is a very public figure one can even read in the European press about his exploits involving goats, large cheeses, and jacuzzis
That aside, he is the Directeur Sportif of Team Flexorcranks, who recruit solely from the Maling Road Ride!
You're just not reading the right threads Search for posts by Bowi including the word Sven going back at least 2 years
Then come and join the ride one day I am happy to ride whatever pace if you do! (except fast, I don't do fast)

I generally still find the forums interesting, useful and informative... as long as I can ignore the strangely compelling 'soap-opera/car crash' that is the MRR thread. Sometimes I ...just...can't...look...away.
But..... there is a fair bit of general bitching, moaning and (often ill-informed) bush-lawyering that is fairly off-putting.
It's not a personal Facebook page here either, folks....
Apart from that I reckon a bit less on-line traffic in recent times has actually lifted the average quality of the posts.. And a few new threads eg. Bike Touring have been quite interesting.

Why YES, of course we can - but you will need to stop making your posts so logical & enlightening, put in more rude words and make them personally abusive and confrontingly aggressive
