We’ve come to the tough decision to close the RAGBRAI Forums. As valuable as they are to the RAGBRAI community, they’re a massive vector for spam and bots to enter our website.
They aren’t closing immediately. We’ll remove the forum in tandem with a RAGBRAI.com update, and I’ll post as soon as I have a more specific timeline. But now’s the time to connect off-site with those you’d like to stay in touch and save any info that you’d like to keep (I’m looking at you T. Gap Woo and your joke thread).
It’s impossible the replace the irreplaceable but I do have a few suggestions and welcome yours as well.
