Started the BSA A7(A10 FORUM team once again. Forum members should join this team. Your fundraising will show up for you, individually, and for the team.

I registered with the Ulladulla ride and can see you in the Chicago ride bur I can't find the Forum team! Tried a few ways of name but no listing.
Have you got a direct link?
Cheers

Muskrat,

Maybe it hadn't been posted yet when you checked. I found it by searching "forum", but here's the link: https://www.gentlemansride.com/team/bsaa7a10forum

Cureently it says "Chicago Ride," but I've requested that be changed to "World-Wide Rides." Having established a bit of relationship with the ride admin, along with thanking them, I had to admit that our 1000+ membership is underrepresented. I've come to understand and accept that that's just the way it is, despite our urgings.

Finally, I've noticed that you can no longer view the details of a ride unless you are signed up for it. This takes some if the fun and, I think, community out of it. Regardless, I expect the ride and after-party to be a good time.

Very glad to see LJ on the forum ride team. Hopefully many others will follow on. BTW, nothng comes to me from this other than, maybe, some satisfaction from getting members involved in a good cause.

Thanks Richard! but our route (Peterborough) doesn't include Chicago though...
By the way, I've recently had the old Prostate call, thankfully all clear with PSA reading of 1.3...well worth getting tackle checked out every now and then.

I've requested a change in ride name for the forum team. They did this for us the last two years. (See 2nd paragragh to Muskrat.)

G'day LJ, great to hear from you again.
Hopefully we'll have a few more members join in this year.
I'll be on the 51 A7, it's her turn. Last year was the Cafe, the year before was the A7  which ran out of sparkles half way round. Still haven't rebuilt the motor but she'll make it.
Cheers

Team page updated.https://www.gentlemansride.com/team/bsaaa0forum

Now, if only we knew a way to get a bunch of [edit: "beezer"] geezers to try something new. (I can say "geezers" because I'm probably in the oldest 5% group here.. *spider* *eek* *smile*)

I am pretty sure it was asked last year but.
I am signed up for the Bury St Edmunds Ride as I think you have to be registered to ride.
But I also want to sign up for the forum ride can you be associated with two rides ??

OK I'm in but it doesn't show me as part of the team. It's a bugga of a site to navigate. Same as last year.
I'm registered as Musk Rat, not many people know my real name! I'll donate on pay day, I'm broke after the weekend.

Happy to contribute regardless but I'll only ride if the weather is fine. I like the dressing up bit best so there's no point if waterproofs are required.

I'll aim to do the Cambridge ride again, probly on the Loop frame Guzzi  I bought late last year.

I've joined the forum team. My nearest ride would be Coventry but when I last looked it was not listed.
