It’s shiny new feature time again – our new Events system has just gone live.
There’s two sides to the system. If you’re a potential participant, you can search for events by location, type, distance and all sorts of other things. Once you’ve found a suitable event you’ll be able to find full details, prices, entry forms and anything else that the organisers have seen fit to include.
You can bookmark any event you’re interested in entering to come back to later and you can do the usual forum discussions around events, and even rate them once you’ve taken part.
The organisers? Yes, the new system is designed to let event organisers or promoters add details of events themselves. If you’re running an event, hit the “Add an event” tab and follow the instructions. It’s relatively quick and (we hope) easy, and a great way to reach thousands of event-hungry mountain bikers. Plus, once you’ve added one event you can use that as a template to add others, so you don’t have to keep adding your contact details etc.
There’s about 90 events in there at the moment with more being added all the time. So get your diary out and head for the Find Event page…
Any comments. post them on a forum thread below this article.
