I think Facebook has a lot to answer for. There are a number of SV-related "Groups" on there that seem to naturally attract the interest from those new riders.

(Personally I find the FB functionality not a patch on this forum space, that is one of the best on the web. Such a shame.)

The problem with Friendface is that some of us don't have and don't want an account. And WhatsApp is only OK if you don't mind relative strangers having your private number and you have to be invited to the group so its difficult to grow. Sorry, sounds negative, but web forums are far more open and inclusive in my book.

Hellllllloooooooooo - looks like there has been a little resurgence in visitors on the site. I hope you guys are well, I certainly miss the meets at Nero's. I didn't realise they weren't really a thing as when I have visited London I have managed to catch a few familiar faces there - perhaps that's because it was pre-arranged.

Hello stranger, long time, hope all is well, Had Filipe come up on one of those "birthday reminders" things just recently, but to be honest I'm not on there much.
