It seems to me that this meetup has become a completely dysfunctional one. With about 750 members this is a very large group. However, aside of BMA rides, there are basically no actual meetup activities. The BMA ones are fun but BMA has their own site. If this all we do we may as well close this meet up. Am I crazy or should this meetup group not be more than a BMA conduit? I like to solicit some input (and I know we could have used the discussions section but that is another sad chapter...). Does anybody have some ideas on why this meetup is not working? Part of the problem may be that most, if not all, of the original organizers have bailed. Are you aware that everybody can post rides? Are the proposals too vague, the rides suggested too hard/easy, the lead time too short? I am not one of the original organizers but I did organize some well attended advanced rides. More recently even these have not gathered much interest. I tend to post these rides kinda last minute. I could see that this could be a problem. How much lead time do you guys like? Anyway, please comment. Perhaps we can find a way to reboot this meet up. As things are we are just wasting everybody's time and the sponsor's money. Also, if you think this meetup is working actually quite well feel free to share that too. Maybe my perception is completely distorted.
In the spirit of this post actually being about riding: I am planing to ride Picture Rock at 12. If you have time meet at the parking.
