The Cyberider Cycling WWW Site

On Friday, 12 February, 1999, the Cyberider server was hacked by an individual who destroyed over 7 years' worth of work. After installing the 'FreeBSD Rootkit 1.2', this person realized that he or she couldn't get any 'useful' or 'interesting' information off of the server, and so decided to execute 'rm -rf /' to 'clean up' after themselves, thus deleting articles, photographs, maps, links, databases and various other features of the site assembled and crafted over nearly an 8 year period.

Cyberider will not be rebuilt. The cost of this act of destruction will be a loss of the public service this site worked to provide. I have restored the most recent files I could find from the site, but will not be actively maintaining or adding to it. My thanks to those who have wished me well or have helped me recover at least some of the material which used to be present here.

May somehow, somewhere, the hacker who so arbitrarily deleted 1.2 million articles that weren't hurting anything be judged for his or her actions.

990726 - A backup of my Links database has been found. :) Links restored.

This site is dedicated to providing cyclists with information about all aspects of bicycles and bicycling, including advocacy, touring routes (in the midatlantic US region), equipment, food, news, places, events, links to other cycling web sites and anything else deemed of value. My goal is not so much a pretty web site as an online databank resource for novice and serious cyclists, alike.

Although some links from this page may point to sites with commercial content this is neither an expressed nor an implied endorsement by either myself, my employer or those whose opinions I value. These are merely links to pieces of free information that some cyclists may deem of value.

Occasionally connectivity drops out. If it does, just hit "reload" from your browser and all should be OK.
