I would love to see a section on Trailforks and even on Pinkbike where a rider could go to find other riders in their area that want to meet up for a ride. I am a climber too and use Mountain Project for route descriptions and other features like their Find a Partner section if I don't have anyone to go climbing with or am in a new area. I know there is the regional forum section in the Pinkbike forums but something a little more specific to finding riding buddies would be awesome!

I thought about doing something like this years ago, just so many potential things on my todo list!

You can kinda do this already... I have done it myself on road trips. Visit a region page on the Trailforks website, goto the ridelogs tab for that region and view the list of top riders. Then message a few of the top riders. If they ride that area that often they are most likely knowledgeable and willing to share.

For an official feature and search related to this, I think it would have to be an opt-in thing. There is also several new mountain biking guide apps just coming out this year, dedicated to this sort of thing.
