    I'm American living in Wales...Yup...there definitely needs to be a UK section. Wales is SICK for riding. Especially, all the unmarked 'local' trails. I use singletrackforums (dot) co (dot) uk for everything I need.

    There is only a handfull of UK specific threads on the Europe forum. Would that tell the mods that there really isn't a need? Perhaps, start posting more in the Europe forum and there will be a greater need to have a UK specific space?

    Bang on, imho.

    Nothing says "subforum needed" more than a huge messy thread full of (relevant) tangents and multiple topics linked to a single core issue.... Except perhaps too many relevant, small threads clogging up existing boards.

    Get a "UK thread" going full of uk related trail news, videos, advice/recommendations and just general stoke... if it gets big enough, they might consider giving us a seperate board - and even if they don't, it'd still be nice to have that thread going.


    As things stand right now, there isn't enough UK-relevant content on this "Europe" board for it to be worth browsing regularly to check - so I don't (is this the same for others?).
    If we start up a general-purpose "UK thread" and post whatever we think is relevant, then we get notifications (in the UCP) that there's something relevant here to look at - imho, that's probably the best way we could get some more UK-centric bike conversation going (short of checking/browsing the europe board regularly, which we probably won't do because we know there's nothing much here that we want to see).

    I'm in the UK too and often frequent these forums as a guide.

    Going to start posting more and hope to see a UK section soon :)

    Chicken or Egg?

    If we want our own sub-section, we probably have to post more in the relevant section (europe).

    Until/unless the "europe" board is so full of UK-related stuff that it becomes difficult to find threads about elsewhere in europe (necessitating a split) there simply isn't much point in them giving us an independent board.


    Personally, I'd favour a big-UK thread purely because notifications would make it easier to see that things have been posted that I might want to see, but if UK threads actually start getting made I might visit the europe board more often.

    My two penneth, for what it's worth is that the UK should have their own board with the necessary sub-sections for the major riding areas i.e. Wales, Scotland, South Downs, Dartmoor, Lake District etc.

    Organisations such as IMBA recognise the quality of the UK riding across locations such as Wales or Scotand. We have also held some very successful racing on these shores...

    Anyone else agree? And how do we go about getting a 'subsection' posted?


    I agree but I think it is not necessary to focus on a country or groups of countries according to the language spoken as someone wrote. It might be interesting to divide threads for each country so everyone can easily find what they need.
    "main sub-section in this forum" is a good idea if it applies to everyone, not only if it is worth to someone. Traveling you will have seen, I hope, that every country has something beautiful.

    Would be great to have a UK only section, however there's very little activity in the Europe section , build it and they will come? perhaps, suppose it all depends on wether the admin think it's worth the effort of creating and moderating just incase, any Costners in the admin crew?

    As for the language thing, we took the English language across the big pond and left it there, it was us ourselves the changed it/ French-ified many words, Like color/colour, color is the original word in the English language, not colour.

    As for aluminium, 'A loo' opposed to 'Al you' is fair enough, but there is another i in there my American friends , and it's not silent, try and keep up ;-)

    I lurk here a lot but would probably post more if there was a UK section.
