This is a request for anyone and everyone who loves bicycles, no matter your rep, experience or cycling type, to come join The Velodrome chat room. I would love to see this chat room accumulate some regulars and grow into an active room.
Here are some of the major reasons why this will benefit the site as a whole:
- It is a good place to discuss questions, answers, and/or comments that need reviewing, answering, editing, etc.
- It is the perfect place to talk about questions that are deemed too opinion-based for the site or will likely solicit debate/discussion (ie what type of bike should I buy?)
- It will be great for discussing things that are too broad for the site like riding gear, specific builds, routes, rides, etc. (ie how did you complete the CDT?)
- If its anything like the SO chatrooms I am active in, it will likely grow your meme/funny pictures collection :P
- It is ideal for discussing upcoming and previous events
In my personal experience of being involved in an active SO chatroom, I can see this site stand to gain so much from people coming into chat and sharing their wisdom in a less formatted way where you don't stand to lose/gain rep based on your opinions.
