    Ok there need to be a midwest representative here!

    How about a Minn/Wisco/Iowa/Ill-noise forum? There's plenty of riders in these states that need a place to vent. Cali doesn't need THREE.
    Just a regular guy.

    I'd love to see that LR. I think a Mid Atlantic and Midwest at the minimum would be good.

    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Let's get regional

    [size=3]The Great Lakes[/size]

    [size=3]The High Plaines[/size]

    [size=3]The Bible Belt[/size]

    [size=3]Olde Dixie[/size]

    [size=3]I'm really ok with being 'the others' because we allready have a great discussion board for illinois. It's ok that the staff at MTBr thinks we are unworthy. I've visited many of my neighboring states bulletin boards and they are quite lively. Right now most of these boards are commercial free. No pop ups, no 'hot deals' just mountain bikers posting about mountain biking.[/size]

    Flatlander's unite

    I am all for a midwest, great lake, open prairie, flyover or whatever you want to call it region!
    I love Biking but I'd rather chat with those that ride the same circumstances as myself, I don't have the same interest as our multi-geared brethern who desire unlimited travel bikes.
    I want to hear about tight twisty single track. what trails are open which are closed how to's and how not to's all within a tank of gas from my house!

    Another vote for a midwest forum. I'd really like to see a Wisconsin forum, but I know that would be pushing it. I do 100% of my riding in the midwest, and would like to compare trail notes with other riders without having to scour through a huge "other" database of posts. Thanks MTBR!

    Or lets just all take over Michigan.

    I'm literally 5 min from the border, so I'm close enough, really.

    IL, IN, OH, WI, KY, etc - are pretty similar riding. Heck even the style of riding around Northern IN and Northern OH is more alike than riding the southern parts of the same state.

    And there will be plenty of news for the Indiana peoples this year. I'm looking forward to it.

    Agreed! How about a thread with links and descriptions to all the groups that are discriminated against by MTBr cause they do not provide equal representation! Fight the establishment that is MTBr...Power to the people!

    Peace, Love and Just Ride!

    Wisconsin Trail Work

    Don't pass up the opportunity to help improve the trails around Madison, Wisconsin. I'll be leading work days on April 3rd, May 8th, and June 6th. Not sure which trail yet, check out:

    http://www.worba.org/

    for more details. I'm hoping we can make the Expert section at Blue Mound into a loop instead of an out-and-back this year. There will be at least one work day at Cam-Rock too.

    How can you propose a greatlakes forum if you don't include the greatlakes state- MI? Thats too bad riding in your states are this unoticed to where you have no representation. Start a revolution! I come to feel left out sometimes too because I live in the UP of MI, which is seriously like another state, and most people on the MI forum (and MMBA forum too) are always talking about riding in the LP, which isn't half as good as in the north country, or even N Minn, or N Wi. In a way I am actually happy that riding here isn't as overpopulated like in CA- too many rule/regulations and environmental problems come into play with that many people riding. CA is one of the most beautiful states, but way too many people- try to go to Yosemite, you will have to wait in a line for hours on most occasions just to get into an National Park. Now I'm just getting myself mad about our sustainability crises. I better go for a ride soon.
