We have at least three questions involving bikes and skiing; see the first few in this search. Should we create a ski tag, or perhaps a tag for other outdoor activities?

Also, this question has a lift tag, which I don't think we need. Should we remove the tag, or replace it with one relating to transporting bikes?

  • skiing sounds like a really narrow category, maybe something to indicate downhill riding though? The tag "downhill" already exists. Alternatively, the "transportation" tag exists also.

I think a tag on transporting bikes is fine (which will almost totally be on car racks). As for a ski tag, I don't think its worth it. The questions are too niche and rare to merit their own tag (note that there's no coherence between the 3 questions which come up -- ski helmets for biking (should be under helmets or something), carrying skis on a bike (luggage/cargo would work for this) or taking a bike up a ski lift (I think thats the only question of the sort this site will see for years)).

The lift tag should also be removed since I don't think anyone will need it.


How about a "biking and" tag with a tag wiki entry along the lines of "Questions about combining biking with another activity – such as how do you carry your dog (or skis) on your bike? Please include the other activity in the subject of your question."

    Too complicated, and too peripheral to the site in most cases. A lot of these questions would likely be better for Outdoors.se or something, or would come up so rarely that it doesn't merit a tag.
