After a short, two-year lifespan, word came this week that the akspokes.com bike forum is shutting down this month. It has been an active forum with more than 1,200 members, so it’s sad to see it go. Efforts to save it, however, aren’t showing much promise.
Plans are being made to establish a new forum if akspokes can’t be saved. So, if you’re a forum member who has been directed here for updates, stay tuned. As soon as information is available on the final fate of akspokes, or the address of a new forum, I’ll post it here to make sure it’s available after the existing forum goes dark.
Anchorage has a small but devoted cycling community, and an online forum is a great tool for staying in touch. With any luck, we’ll still have one in February, regardless of which server it resides on, or what its name is.
