Re: [bike-252] Need your inputs for my first mountain biking in Leh

I don't have an answer ready. I could answer it to the best of my knowledge but there are some members on this forum who have been to YHAI's expeditions and they will be able to tell you better. In the meantime let me think of some people to connect you with. When is your event?

You said "first of all sorry to broadcast this message to all.,". I'm writing specifically to tell you that you don't have to be apologetic at all about mailing the whole group! Contrary to belief, bike-252 is NOT just for announcements or shouting out achievements. It exists also for people like you and me to exchange notes and help each other out from time to time.

Dear All,
We do not want anybody to feel overwhelmed by the number of emails. Use your judgement to decide which mails you want to send to specific members and which mails to the entire group ([address removed]). Although no action has been taken against members/spammers in the last two years, I'd like to remind everybody that it is very much possible to ban members if they cross the line. This is an un-moderated group. This means posts/emails are sent without being screened by an admin or moderator and any email you send will go to thousands of HBC members. As of today, HBC has 3,862 members registered on meetup and 3,172 of them have signed up to receive mails via bike-252. The rest have opted out and so can you if you think it is unnecessary. Yes, there is an unsubscribe option and you can continue to be a meetup member without having to receive email. You can also choose to receive ONE digest email instead of mails as they are being sent.

I understand how some members think they are being "spammed". In my opinion as long as it is not off-topic, it is not spam. We are all sensible to know what is relevant and what is off-topic. If by "spammed" you mean "flooded" please go to and change your email/notification Settings.
