Tallbikes says

Cut and pasted from comments (with a few spelling corrections)
"the thing that struck me about the tongue as it grew was 1; its under ground nature-standing for nothing answering to no one 2; and that it had a communal heart... especially where exposure to public was concerned, many organisations requested TOF's presence, [the main opening of the tour down under, unley gala, interviews by the Sunday mail and the Australian] all were discussed debated and most turned down, except the fringe parade crashing, and some Fear and Loathing collaboration, oh and that dodgy local movie thing...
So reading recent Bike SA posts inviting people on TOF rides is a bit out there for me personally. we have turned them down 3 times b4... id like to see the group keep the underground side of TOF alive and make these choices as a group, especially where exposure to the public's concerned.
That's what the name used to mean for me, a lot of people bled for this name, some lost bits of their anatomy because of the name... some didn't make it... We have history, lets remember it for direction as a group.
All for more building and riding always, but if people are going public with their stuff, how about we consider a public events name for those who want to peddle that path, just an idea"
