Just another idea I had last night. Not that I will ever show up because it involves riding bikes but I was thinking since our team rides are so awesome and so many people attend why don't we try something a little different. What I was thinking was we meet somewhere every Thursday night or a different night but it is that night every week. For example Thursday night we meet at the Optimis fields at 7pm and ride the dump loop. This has the same fit and feel as the team rides. The point is to ride as a group. If you decide you want to go hard on a hill that is fine but wait at the top or ride back down and climb with someone the second go around. So for a good portion of the ride we are together.
Just a thought.
