Forum Closing – Feb 2

It’s really happening – for real this time! We will be closing the forums this Friday, Feb 2nd, in an effort to keep scammers and bots away while we update plug-ins, and in working on transferring our content to the new RAGBRAI website.

It’s impossible the replace the irreplaceable but I do have a few suggestions and welcome yours as well.
Non Facebook: Reddit’s RAGBRAI Subreddit:
RAGBRAI Newbies:
RAGBRAI Wristband Transfer Page: (currently closed to comments for the season)

I look forward to the new site!

It’s too bad RAGBRAI hasn’t provided a reasonable alternative for the forum.
Facebook is awful — many, many people avoid it like the plague it is.
The Reddit site is one spam advertisement after another.
I guess there will be a lot of desperate people soon, with no way to attend RAGBRAI.

Texting with the people here has been very nice, and very helpful, .
I’ll miss you all, once we’re cut off. :-(

So long, everybody.  Smoooth roads and tailwinds to you.

Testing … testing.

It appears the forum is still here and functioning, although I see that the powers-that-be have removed the link to it from the menu on the home page.  Maybe it’s an oversight, or may they’re following a policy of benign neglect and intend to leave it up and running, an orphan in cyberspace, accessible only to the cognoscenti who have been here before.

Yep still open but hidden.

Yea, I see it too. I always get here from a saved “favorite” so I didn’t even realize much had changed but it appears it is here if you can get here :)
