AD: Scot-Cycling, list/newsgroup for Scottish leisure cyclists


David Marsh

Scot-Cycling: a mailing list/newsgroup for discussing cycling in Scotland, UK,
which may be of interest to readers of this newsgroup.

(This is intended to act as a complement to the newsgroup uk.rec.cycling
which many people find is too high-traffic to follow regularly)

'Scot-Cycling' is a group intended mainly for discussions of leisure
cycling, both onroad/touring and offroad/mountain biking. Visitors
seeking information to help plan cycling holidays in Scotland are
especially welcome to ask for advice. (However, please note this list
is not particularly intended for discussion of competitive or
sporting cycling.)

Scot-Cycling is available either as a mailing list via email:
(See: <> to subscribe)

or as a newsgroup/"forum" through gmane:
as gmane.culture.bicycle.scottish

NB: In order to be able to post to the group through gmane, you must
first subscribe to the mailing list in 'no-mail mode' via YahooGroups
as above.

(Note that gmane and YahooGroups make archives of postings to the group
available to the public. As on any public group on the internet, you are
advised to post using a 'disposable' or 'time-limited' email address to
reduce the risk of spam: eg, if you have your own domain or subdomain,
create an email address of the form '[email protected]' in addition
to your normal email address, and change this every year.

The email address you use to post to the group *must*, however, be valid
(and subscribed to the email list, even if only in 'no-mail mode').
This is to prevent spammers from posting to the group.)

There are a number of other groups related to cycling and cycle
campaigning in Scotland, please see:
