    The purpose of this forum is to give boardsie cyclists somewhere to share their cycling training goals, track progress, help and support each other.

    For examples of how similar forums are used elsewhere, see:

    boards.ie > Rec > Fitness > Fitness Logs
    boards.ie > Sports > Athletics / Running / Triathlon > Training Logs

    These guidelines will evolve, but for now just try and be positive.

    I'm not sure what to do with this place.

    Me for example.
    I am moving towards establishing goals for next year. Options presently include (in no order) Dublin Marathon. The winter duathlon series in the park. A number of middle distance running races. A few triathlons. And I'm considering joining Orwell, to gain access to club league I last raced 12 years ago.
    I have the beginnings of a log in a/r/t.
    My background is exclusively cycling, albeit nowt in 8 or 9 years.

    Is this place for cycling only? can it support runners? Cross trainers?

    it's like the cycling forum as against the fitness forum as against A/R/T - a lot of threads are in common - HRMs, etc, etc.

    I'm a member of the cycling forum community, and therefore should my log be here, irrespective of content, or should this be reserved for cycling ambitions?

    I think that's question only you can answer... look deep within yourself and ask solemnly: am I a cyclist?

    Well are you?

    If the answer is "I am!" then log here and we can all agree to treat your non cycling activities (spit) as some sort of cross-training for what really matters: the bike.

    seems a fair assessment. There are differing expertise's in the various fora, so it'll be a question of where you feel the log will sit best.

    Anyone else have a view of what this forum can be?

    Hope it will be an interactive forum for training/support group. At the very least it may help to filter out the RLJ/helmet/taxi threads
