Under contact info we need a link to the message board because we run into similar issues as with our website regarding siouxcycling@gmail... Also, ditch collegiate and make it UND Cycling Club for consistency.

Under rides we need a link to the message board and instead of "contact UNDCC" we need a link to the board. ie we don't need a bunch of new people emailing to find info when they can just goto the board... that was its purpose.

For links we need to have a link to our conference website nc-cycling.com (I think) as well as USAC, perhaps even the facebook group.

I also think we should have an about with some sort of info about the differences between the club and the team, we don't want to sound elitist but there is a distinction and people should understand they can hang out OR race.

Ted this site looks awesome... again if you need any writeups or anything I'm happy to oblige. Those are just my opinions about the work... you can change it at your discretion. The only thing super necessary is big links to the message board and little links to gmail.

I agree with Dave. Couple big things are the message board link, USAC link, and nc-cycling link. Other than that it looks awesome.
The minimum number of bikes one should own is three.  The correct number is n+1, where n is the number of bikes currently owned.  This equation may also be re-written as s-1, where s is the number of bikes owned that would result in separation from your partner.

Site looks tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

3. things.
1. Typo in the 1st paragraph "bicyclist" should be pluralized.
2. I know its on the front page, but on the contact page could we get a link to the message board.
3. Does anyone have access to cycling@und.edu... send me a PM with the deets on that one.

I agree, looks tight.  I like the picture of Dave:  totally in the zone.  Just a couple of grammar notes (if anyone cares).  I'd put a comma instead of a period in "Club and Team.  A group of"   or else the second sentence is incomplete.  Also I"d take out the comma in "website, and pictures". 
Life is complex.  It has a real part and an imaginary part.

Under Rides link, in the first sentence, the "Campus Dakota" is not in green, so unless you point your mouse on it you will not know it's a link.

Maplelag is one word (Photos)
Larry Martin is the name you're looking for (someone who was there know who the official was?)

Green text and green links is a little confusing.

Page titles are inconsistent with capitalization.

Are we charging membership now?  I know you took that off the old page, but it doesn't fit with what we've been doing.  Heck, we had trouble just getting $1 out of people last year for membership.

I would put links on the contact page on a separate page with our sponsors when we get them (currently SBS).

People who have not sent Tcb03c a photo for the profile page should do so along with your best/most current finishes and something about yourself (doesn't have to be serious).

Yar!  Yost told me to take a look.  Nice work Ted.

Keep me posted on the membership dues though.  If we're charging now, I'll be down for $10, but I don't want to be the only one who's gotta dish out to hang with this crew.

yeah,.....my eyes are bad

(P.S. why can't a girl be on the first page? it might help our membership if other guys see a chick on the page, and the chicks won't feel so intimidated- just food for thought..... and I think I'm special too i guess)
