Is it worth it? is in its 7th year. Traffic and usage has grown year-on-year, but for a few quid or goodies donated by businesses for banner ads, its net value is in its users. It is a labour of love for me - I do love cyclocross and wanted to see some central place where we can go and share things, sell things, say things, ask things... but I'm not sure it's worth it.
