It's a new forum. A kinder, gentler Slowtwitch forum... Ask CLM about it...

If that's all this forum is is it really necessary? Seems to me I just have to check another forum now.

guywithabike - no, you're not in the wrong forum. Post away!

secondwind - not going to go there. Yes, it's necessary and we're not going to justify it to anyone. You don't have to check this forum if you don't want to.

Dan - keep working on it. You're close, but not quite there yet! :)

@ Dawn and Katy

I wasn't complaining. I just hate to see forums get split up. It's a lot easier to miss a thread that you might otherwise want to participate in. If there's a need for the forum there's a need for the forum, but apparently one can't ask what that need is.

The need doesn't matter. It was requested and Dan so nicely obliged.

My thoughts - my wife does a solitiary "women's only" triathlon every year which she says is great fun since it's all girls, but would never want to do women's only triathlons exclusively, although a certain % of women do.

As an analagy I'll guess that most of the women who post on The Womens forum will also continue to post on the main forum. Nice thing is that you now have a forum for specific women's issues and a place to go for intelligent conversation at times when the testosterone b.s. on the main forum needs a knife to cut through it.

I think it's a great idea. I hope my wife stops lurking and starts posting now.

That's my $.02. I'd better now head back to the main forum where I belong.:-)

I didn't realize there were so many womens until I read the Roll Call thread. Cool.

I wanted to post this in the thread "can we have a mens forum too" but I expect it isn't a widely read thread just from the title.

Does something that is "wanted" have to also be necessary? If so, I can't explain all my bikes as necessary.

I got a better understanding of why women want these sorts of things when I instructed at an all women's (womens to irritate iron3fit :) ) MTB camp. On day two, it was time to take the womens on a long ride deep into the trails, have a lunch and ride back. Nearing the end, one of them got all reflective and a little sappy on the experience as a whole and started discussing "womens only" thing, and how excited she was when she heard it was offered (all the stuff about riding without her boyfriend telling her all time about what she did wrong, or too slowly or whatever was going on with her ), how much more eager she was to show up knowing no men would be there, and how great it all turned out for her and her friends and on an on and on.

So she said, in all seriousness "why don't you folks also put together some men's only camps, that would be good for my boyfriend, now I KNOW he does a ton of stuff wrong that he tries to make me do...".

I reflected on my answer, and said "Go ahead and mention to any guy that he could go to a weekend-long mountain bike camp, the first thing he'd ask is: 'will there be some chicks there?' "

nuf said.
