how to discover cycling website tags

October 3, 2011 | 8:00 pm

I know empirically that there is a tag cloud for the Cycling website and the forums, because when I make a post I am asked to enter relevant tags. I can also make nifty URL-based queries, such as http://cycling74.com/tag/expo/, which resolve to a nicely formatted set of permalinks.

My question is: is there a way to easily discover the tags that are in the cloud? Folksonomy works best when we folk are able to see the tags that other folk are using…

(And thanks in advance for pointing out the location if I am simply clueless and this is a FAQ.)

Self answer: http://www.cycling74.com/forums/tags.php

If you want to check for other posts on a specific tag, add "tag=" to the end.

This is forums only, and on quick inspection does not cleverly link into the main website tag system.

Also, since I’ve not been slapped with snarky "look here" posts, I am going to conclude that this is not easily discoverable. The only link to it that I could find was generated by the Google spider, which was also kind enough to enumerate the existing tags for me.
