BigGee I am going to carry a couple of litres in my backpack for my 300. A 2l coke bottle works fine.
Pounce after 6 months of dust I am looking forward to getting bogged. :)

Jacko I was thinking local, so maybe sawyers to the central area single tracks near where we camped out at a couple of years ago. Around the 100klm mark. Those tracks will be needing some action before they get too overgrown.

After all this rain, if some of you don't hit the hills you'll bring shame upon your ancestors & family name.

The Crusty’s have to keep going for at least another 20yrs so Tiger can get his 100 up heehee lol.

As for number 1, weather looks good down there lately so hopefully more will make a call for a ride & there’s always been heaps of people to guide you in the right direction when lost or confused on where to go next etc especially for me when lost or heading the wrong way, so yeah from my experience of leading only a few rides this help you get from others gives you more confidence to get out there in front instead of waiting on the fence & seeing if someone will call & lead rides this also tends to make people join & look at other groups to ride in the packs which is fun don’t get me wrong but it would be good to see the normal leaders we are fortunate to have in this group to have some fun mid pack.

Well done Inver & Dazza great ride bugger about TP.

Good post TigeR. I checked out that meetup.com site (Perth) you mentioned and now I think I know which group some of our members have gone to :-)


Perth - Mens Midweek Naked Sausage Sizzle ????

WTF this sounds more dangerous than a man in his fifties riding a dirt bike!!!

On a serious note I think for now we could keep it simple and maybe just post rides on here and FB and see if anyone actually joins up via FB. If it becomes a winner we can migrate, if not we stay the same.

Interesting discussion on integrating Fakebook and the CQ website.

My 2c, with any riding group what’s required is:

1. People to call & lead rides
2. People to administer the group (add people, events, etc)
3. People to join the group and rides
4. Technology (app/website) to support the group

With any group, 1 is the challenge. Who’s doing it now and who’s going to do it in the future. That’s the make or break of any group.

2 is generally not an issue.

3 call it and they will come.

4 is normally Fakebook Groups, but could be sites like:
https://www.meetup.com
https://advrider.com

or a custom websites like:
http://www.perthtrailscene.com/
http://crustyquinns.com

The challenge with custom websites is they become dated over time if not upgraded. Facebook has a valuation of US500 billion and 35,000 full-time employees. For Crusty Quinns that’s US 500 (1 billion times less) and no employees, so FB has a slight edge with resources. :0)

Facebook started in 2004, Crusty Quinns started in 2001 – so that’s a win there. It's a piece of WA internet history!

See http://crustyquinns.com/cgi-bin/ui.pl?ui=hi for the original site.

Pounce has outlined well below the pros and cons. If somebody wants to set up a Facebook group and link back to crustyquinns.com, go for it. That could help more people to find Crusty Quinns. But then somebody would need to administer the FB group. It doesn’t make sense (to me) to try and integrate the two by writing a whole bunch of new code to automagically put posts (as an example) from Crusty Quinns to FB or vice-versa.

Eventually the custom website crustyquinns.com may cease to work or become too cumbersome (it was built and then rebuilt before the mobile phone was the main platform for accessing the ‘net). In that case it makes sense to move to another generic platform or find a young nerd to rebuild the current functionality as a phone app or whatever the latest tech of the time is.

The site is custom for now (with some unique features and a unique history) but can join the masses in the future on another platform (and lose the unique features) if need be.

Bottom line is 1 is the problem.

Inver and Dazza both finished Finke ok - well done. With 550 odd bikes and a load of DNF must have been a hell of a ride.
