It’s time to bring this particular cycling adventure to a close. Bunch Rides is shutting down.
Adrian and I have spent the several years working with the local cycling community. We, with others, created Beeston Cycling Club and saw it through it’s early years. We’ve shared the joys of two blokes, who are in truth a bit past their prime, trying to make it in racing through our videos and blog.
The application seemed like a natural progression for us. Everything we’ve learned from being cyclist and club officials could be shared with everyone so their cycling lives could be better. Unfortunately the time has come to accept that we’re not able to produce something that the community really wants or needs.
The primary reason we haven’t made it is time. Neither of us have been able to give it the sufficient focussed effort to make it successful. We can’t quit our jobs to make it happen so we’re just not able to build and test ideas quickly enough to create something that people value.
We’ll continue to run the service until June 30th 2013 so those of you who need to can transition to alternative web sites.
We’ve already pre-warned key people at our most active clubs about this announcement so they’re probaby best to advise you on what is going to happen with your site going forward. Though feel free to email us email@example.com with any questions, queries or requests, eg if you want the discussions and comment data from your club area.
We’d like to extend a huge thanks to those old and new friends that supported us and wanted to make this work. Sorry it didn’t happen.
See you on the road soon.
Adam & Adrian
