Yeah, not so much. As stated in the "Overview on Posting
NOTE: Be prepared for public scrutiny and criticism of your posts & threads, it comes part and parcel with posting on public message boards.
If you don't want people disagreeing with, or commenting on, your plans, the ePlaya isn't the place to post them.
Yea, not so much Eric:

Yea not so much, there is nothing critical posting animated pictures of a handful of cyclists in Italy getting plowed over by an angry driver is not meant to be critical or examine the situation. Rather, I'm left with a range of interpretations about the meaning from I might be run over too to its ok and maybe even funny when people on bicycles get run over.
You are correct about one thing however, this is a pubic forum, and while it may lack scruples it has brought in interest. And that's a good thing from my point of view. And as the interest grows so will the camp. The funny thing is that its not a problem to get cycle tourist to want to tour, the challenge is to let them know what a week on the playa can be like.
I have one suggestion already for a bicycle repair zone. This makes some sense, but its also one of those things that's already done. Cycle repair may become so ubiquitous that you'll be able to get your breaks adjusted next to every bar if we're not careful. I'm thinking that a bicycle advocacy might be in order for the camp. The idea is appealing because we have all the components already on their way: people who love to bike, in our case, very long distances, some very well designed and built bicycles, and most likely a ton of photographs and stories, maybe a map or two.
On another note, can I ask that who ever moved the thread kindly put it back in theme camps for 2013? While getting there is a component of a cyclists experience its not the point of the camp at the burn. I'd really appreciate it if we could get some scrutiny
from other camp organizers as well as drum up involvement from the correct location on this board.
