After a thread last week that brought up the issue we've been discussing the issue in the office. Our very early thinking is that there's perhaps a need for a forum that deals with mountain biking issues relevant to women.
The current forum is considered by some to be a somewhat intimidating place that can perhaps cause some people to lurk instead of posting as freely as they would like. We've had it suggested to us that if there was a women specific forum that many would be posters would be encouraged to get more involved. That's one issue for consideration.
Now we don't really want to open up a discussion about it here on the forum although you are free to obviously but if you have ideas/opinions that you'd really like us to consider seriously then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
As food for thought our very early thought was that we'd create a new forum that was a place for women to predominantly discuss mountain bike issues with other women. Not a forum that excluded men but a forum where the topics discussed were restricted to issues relevant to women. It's a vague idea.. and ergo why we would really like your input too.
We appreciate it may be a topic that encourages strong opinions and so we are throwing the idea out there to see what feedback we can gather.
Over to you.
