I have mentioned the Windows Live QuickApps previously as I feel they're a really good way to get hold of operational source code of real working web applications to use in your own development projects.

However it can be difficult for the uninitiated to get to grips with the code and how it's been implemented so it's great to see Liveside has posted three blog entries that really get under the covers of the Bicycle Club site to explain how it works.

I've pasted below an image from the working site with information about which Windows Live Services are being used - from here take a look at the following Liveside postings to get much more detail on how this has actually been implemented. And thanks to Angus for pointing this out to me :-)
