Start Your Very Own Riding Club!

Recommended Posts

Today we launched a cool, new site feature called "Clubs"! Whether you want to create a more-the-merrier locals riding club for weekend rides & trail maintenance or a tighter knit private club, where discussion of next weekend's super-secret singletrack loop is hush hush, ThumperTalk "Clubs" have you covered!

Clubs have a variety of set-up choices from "Open", where anyone can view club content or join instantly, to more private clubs (Closed) where content is hidden from non-members and membership is either by request or admin invite only.

Clubs are not limited to riding, but might also include interest based clubs such as:

  • Vintage MX Racers
  • Custom Parts & Motorcycle Fabrication
  • CR500 Fans
  • Local riding area maintenance, management, & advocacy

Club features & functions include:

  • Clubs Discussion & notifications
  • Club Calendar
  • Club Photo Galleries
  • Club Blogs

Whether you want to better coordinate with current riding buddies, find new ones, or simply hang with fellow riders who share a particular passion, ThumperTalk Clubs is your personal platform to make it happen.

Bryan, this is a fantastic idea. So much so, I signed up for Team Thumpertalk today.

I'm assuming a person could use this club function temporarily too right? For example, a group of 10 guys going to Moab for a vacation, they use the club/group thing to organize and discuss details etc? If so, this function has some great commercial applications ... I did a trip in the spring and they used Facebook for that, and many people don't want/use facebook.

Yeah, you can use it for more involved trip planning. I'll be doing this very thing for my Colorado Back Country Discovery Route ride next summer.

To quote Grouch Marx

"I wouldn't want to belong to a club, that would have me as a member" 

But since I'm, more or less new to TT, I'll play.....

How about a group of Cranky, retired, Northern Ca off road rider, who only  .....getting to specific ?

The club I started is private, we are now at 14 members. Absolutely love the functionality of the system. We are doing a Moab trip, and being able to use the club for that is really cool and helps with planning.  After a few glitches with getting new members aboard due to iphone issues with the software, everything runs super smooth.

when i look at the clubs page that red button "start a club" doesnt exist! what gives?

NoOBs can't start a club. Post a few questions, ask a few questions and soon your user status will change and with it, the ability to start a club.
