Problems with Crazyguyonabike?

Problems with Crazyguyonabike?

I'm wondering if only I'm having problems accessing CGOAB because I'm in Iran and it's blocked as a potentially subversive thing. Cycling liberates people, as they say, it's "the only chain that will set you free."

Or if it's problems with the website in general. Someone here has told me that it may be on the US side (the blockage) or maybe the site's administration is screwed up?

Anyway, if anyone can enlighten me....

In Iran I can't use Facebook either; otherwise I'd post there, too.

Neil, the CGOAB proprietor,

Neil, the CGOAB proprietor, has blocked several countries from accessing the site. He has spoken about blocking Romania and China because the vast majority of website traffic originating from those countries is malicious. Perhaps Iran fell under the same block.

What a drag. That's profiling

What a drag. That's profiling on a different level.
Maybe there should be some password that we get to circumvent that blockage?

It’s trivial to get around

It’s trivial to get around the CGOAB geo-block with a VPN, which cyclists in Romania, China and Iran are very used to using anyway.

I tried one of those VPN

I tried one of those VPN things on my smartphone but it clogged up things and kept throwing crappy messages about this or that. Had to uninstall it to have some peace. Maybe I'll try another one, but more likely (by that time), I'll just be leaving Iran anyway maybe, so I'll write my stuff offline (so much to catch up on!) and post it from somewhere else.
Thanks for the comments/info anyway!
