Re: [Boulder-Mountain-Bikers] Why not have more rides?

Hello All,

It has been quite interesting reading the responses.  I have to admit, the few times I have gone with some of the meet up riders, they were beyond my level, (intermediate and cautious) but I did not feel even a hint of snobbery.  Everyone was very friendly. I just haven't signed up again because I don't really like holding people up.  But I would be willing to try again.  I have a group that I ride with on Tuesday nights, but I am pretty open most other nights of the week.  I will try next Monday.

I'm all for having more rides. I just recently discovered "meetups" too.  I can't do the Monday rides because on Monday's (and only Mon) I work until 6pm.  Tues & Wed & Sat I coach a soccer team.  So until soccer ends (mid June), my time is limited to Thurs and Sundays.  I guess I just haven't been bold enough to initiate a ride yet. 
 
I'm an intermediate rider but have no problem riding with novices or experts (if they'll be ok riding with me).  I just love to mountain bike and would really enjoy riding with anyone.

Hi, well I can say that for me, I just recently discovered "meetups" and I thought as a total novice mountain biker this group might be able to help me learn the area and learn some basics too.  When I inquired about the Monday night rides as being a novice - I was discouraged from coming, so I have not come.  As a beginner - I am looking for a friendly supportive group to 'show me the ropes' a bit, and was about to cancel this meetup actually since it has had nothing to offer me up to now.     That is my two cents.

Subject: [Boulder-Mountain-Bikers] Why not have more rides?

Dear All,

Am I the only one wondering how a mountain bike meetup with nearly 500 members has such a small number of actual meetups? Modulo the heroic effort of Dave, lets face it, there is just about nothing going on here. Seems to me that most of the original organizers have vanished. Yes, there are other mountain bike meetups and many are significantly more active.  However, many are a bit too far away. A Boulder mountain biker meetup would seem to make sense. Given that you all have signed up suggest that there is interest in mountain biking principally but somehow this is just not working out. So far, the ride I organized attracting the most people here was the Nivot Ridge one, but this is not something that can be done regularly.

What kind of rides would you all like to do? Is there interest in more advanced rides (e.g., Hall), more exploratory rides (e.g., Sourdough network)... should we do a poll?

Please share your thoughts.

best,  Alex
