Coordinating Bike Rides – Ideas?

Kai -- October 17th, 2007

A local biker just started a new message board “for people to post rides they want to organize or just to find people to ride with or get info on new trails. I hope that this can provide a service to the local biking community.”  He says, “Even though we have a very dedicated mountain bike and roadie community around here, I have not been able to find an online source for people to easily post rides they are trying to organize or to find people to ride with.”  

What are some sources, sites, and networks bikers use to find trails and link up with other riders?  I know SMBC is one.

    The time has come again for the third annual Pirate Alleycat! This has always been the biggest and craziest alleycat of the year.
