Northern California Bicycle Racing Communal Blog

Original posting on

Okay, after a little prodding (not much really), I've put together a communal blog for Northern California Bicycle Racing. Basically, what we're hoping to accomplish with the site is to provide a place to capture the incredible bike racing scene here that is neglected by the media. Yes, does a great job with the National and European races, but what about us little guys? There are tons of regional events that don't even get mentioned.

So please include content to the site - in most cases, your race reports are more interesting than what the media puts together. If a bunch of people contribute, it should really represent the cycling community well. The site is moderated by me, but I don't plan on doing any editing of content or anything like that. It's just a control in place that prevents wackos from posting non-bike related stuff (i.e. Viagra sales). Anyone can post, from the beginner to Pro. The more content, the more interesting the site. You can even simply post a link to your existing race reports (as I mention on the site, no sense in duplicating your efforts). Don't forget some photos!

Please forward this message to other bike clubs/teams/riders, etc. If there is demand for it, we'll get a fancy website and domain name. Right now it is very simple and lacks major bells and whistles - but it is effective (and free!). If you have some ideas for improving the site, forward it to me as well. Suggestions are definitely welcome!
