    Okay, so how do we do it?

    We're getting a steady influx of 6 to 10 new members a day - which isn't bad - but I'd like to see us hit 2000+ active members!

    Any SEO gurus out there that could get us listed in lots of search engines?

    Anyone edit a cycle mag that could give us a mention?

    Anyone edit their local council web site that could give us a link - or any web site for that matter?

    Any ideas at all really. I just feel it would be good to get the cycling part of the chat going, if you know what I mean ;)

    One thing a guy I know does is put a link to websites at the bottom of any e-mails he sends.

    human nature is to be curious and he gets many hits from this.
    Not saying this will def gain new members but it give a little more exposure if all the members did the same?

    I hope you're not one of these Sects/Cults?

    Shaun, I think it will naturally snowball anyway, just give it time.

    You could always take out an ad in C+ ;-)

    Most national papers have a cycling column now. Send an email to the guys that write those columns, mentioning that most of the knowledge from C+ is now here, and we might get a mention. C+ forum used to get mentions, so don't see why we shouldn't.......

    6 to 10 new members a day seems not too bad to me. It's getting people to post regularly that's the hard bit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Get a list of all the cycle clubs in the uk and send them a promo e mail asking them if they would paste in a link code to this site in their own sites...you could offer them a recipricol link on here somewhere?

    I've bladdered off e-mails to my (now) LA and my ex LA asking them to put a link in to here on there "sustrans page", stating also that it's ad free so they wouldn't be endorsing companies/products
