Man, this site really has little value if I can't even *give* it away.

Um, where do Austin bike activists hang out these days online?

Facebook. Most of the folk I personally know who are heavily involved all coordinate through Facebook or google groups, or in person over beers.

I'll leave sharing the details to Doug, but I did want to quickly assuage folks worry. I spoke with him online earlier this morning, and he is in good spirits and recovering.

I second what the folks above said. Though oftentimes behind the scenes I know you've been active in your way for decades at this point. Pre-Myspace/Facebook your site was the place folks went to find all sorts of otherwise esoteric and obscure information about local bike events, laws and happenings. Similarly, your listserv has been a handy resource in getting people talking to each other who otherwise may not have.

Personally, your site is one of the reasons I started ATXBS a decade back. I had a great time doing that while I did it, and for a part of that I have you to thank. You also did a lot to up the exposure of Critical Mass at a very pivotal point (in my opinion) in the Austin bike community timeline, and backlash against the in-your-face destination unknown ride style in turn spawned other big local ride organizations, namely the Thursday Night Urban Ride, which became Social Cycling Austin.

I'd say go for it.
