Welcome to PikesPeakSports.us!
Thanks for joining us. You are among friends here. PikesPeakSports.us is a social network for those who strive to live a healthful and active lifestyle. We like to say it's like Facebook for people with rocks in their shoes. The site works when you share information, photos, blogs, stories and video about your adventures.
If you have questions or comments about the site, please contact Tim Bergsten, site founder and manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Colorado Springs is one of the most active communities in the country. This Web site was created to celebrate that culture. The following are some tips for using the site.
Create an account
Click “Sign Up” to register. The "Sign Up" button is at the top of the right column on this page. Please use your real name, first and last. You may have to wait for us to approve your PikesPeakSports.us account, but it won't take long, and the wait is worth it!
There are several places and ways to add information. All of these functions can begin in the main toolbar at the top of this page (it says "Home, Invite, My Page, Members etc...") Click around on the toolbar, you can't break it ... we already tried.
Click “Photos” in the main bar. This will give you an opportunity to view and add photos. You can also click “Add Photos” at the bottom-left of the photo-scroll frame. You can add one or many photos. It's always a good idea to make a photo album. The site instructions are easy to follow. Try to include information about the photos you enter. It makes it more fun.
Blogs: Start a blog by clicking “Blogs” in the main toolbar. When the Blogs page comes up, click on "+ Add" at the top-right part of the page. The small icons at the top of the text frame will allow you to include links, photos, video and files from your computer to your blog.
You can add videos by clicking “Videos” in the main bar at the top of the main page. You can add videos from your computer. Movies uploaded from your computer may not be larger than 100MB. You can also easily add movies from YouTube, Hulu and Vimeo, by clicking those logos at the bottom of the video page.
Events: Click "Events" in the main tool bar. The events tool is easy to negotiate. The PikesPeakSports.us events calendar is a thorough and reliable source of information. Please add your events there.
The PikesPeakSports.us Groups really are the heart and soul of the site. Click on the groups you like, then click "Join Group."
Adding discussions in groups: Add discussions on the group pages by clicking “Start Discussion” (scroll down to find it) or "Write your story" near the middle part of the group page. As with blogs, the small icons at the top of the discussion frame allow you to include links, photos, video and files to your discussion. You can comment on discussions. You can also send a message to others in the group.
Build your friend network by adding friends. Click on a member’s profile and then click “Add as Friend”. You can see all members by clicking “View All” at the bottom of the “Members” area on the Home page. Your friends will be visible on your profile page. The site allows you to send a message to all of your friends at once
