Why are YOU here?

Post by Philk » Sun Jun 15, 2008 8:30 pm

Following from the thread that justa started I thought it might be helpful to understand why we are here.

I looked at various sites, and this was the only family oriented and least judgmental of the ones I looked at.

This was important because I am now riding with my son. So biking is not just about me going out and being a hooligan biking has a new dimension now for me.

The other thing about this site was the friendly approach to newbies to biking. very helpful and again non judgmental.

Finally I liked that there were so many female members. a sure sign the neanderthals havn't taken over.

I have put up a poll as well but its quite limited. I hope it reflects the initial reason for joining this site. I take it as a given that we all appreciate a social belonging we get from this site, and am just interested in the reasons for joining.

I think one thing flows from the other and its just such a wonderful, friendly, supportive site, with plenty of rideouts and events going on. I think the fact that there are so many women on here (think its about 50:50) has a big part to play in the atmosphere of this site and why its so unique

Have voted on the last one, but I too would say the last 3 apply really.

But I agree with chic about the population of the site - friendship, help, humour etc all go towards making it kind of unique. :D

Anything else that comes out of being a member is a bonus!! :wink: :oops:
