WHO ARE YOU?
I'm Griff Wigley, AKA the Mountain Bike Geezer. I'm an mtb skills instructor with a blog, a podcast, a free mtb skills-only Facebook group/community, and as of spring 2018, an online community called Dyrt Nation: Mountain Biking Skills for the Rest of Us. (More about me on my blog's About page.)

WHAT'S SPECIAL ABOUT YOUR MTB SKILLS FACEBOOK COMMUNITY? AND WHY ARE YOU MOVING IT TO DYRT NATION?
Participation in our Facebook group/community has been high: we typically get 800 or more comments every month from hundreds of different people. And I'm amazed at not only the depth of the discussions and breadth of knowledge evident in the community every day, but also the spirit of collegiality and tone of civility that permeates it. Maybe it's the fact that 36% of the members are women -- that's unheard of in the online mountain biking world. Here's the Facebook Group Insights graph from November 1, 2017:


But the technical limitations of a Facebook Group are sometimes frustrating.  The features we need can only be gotten from a separate, stand-alone web forum platform. We're ready to grow the community and all that it can offer!

WHAT'S PATREON AND WHY ARE YOU USING IT? 

Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for creators to get paid. Since participation in Dyrt Nation is free, I need people's financial support in my role as the community manager to lead its development as a dynamic and fun place to learn mtb skills, while adding more features, events, and experts. If you appreciate what you experienced in the original Facebook Group and/or want to see the new Dryt Nation community flourish, you can show your support by becoming a financial patron of it here via my Patreon page.

WHAT DO YOUR PATRONS GET IN RETURN?

Patrons get public recognition for their financial support, the satisfaction from contributing to the sport of mountain biking, and of course, my undying appreciation! See the right sidebar for the current 4 levels.
