2012 RIDE PLANNING MEETUP

2012 RIDE PLANNING!


Bring your ride ideas & appetites!


Let’s get the riding season filled with some awesome riding!


The ride can be a previous ride you were on, a ride to a place you haven’t been, a ride to a fantastic restaurant, a ride to No Where! ... (we had one of those!).  We like to ride!


Rides can be morning, afternoon, all day rides and even an overnight or long weekend ride, … or even a week long ride if that is what you want to do.


If you want to lead your ride suggestion, just say so! You lead, we will follow!


Where: Planks Café & Pizzeria
743 Parsons Avenue
Columbus, OH 43206

When: Saturday 3/3 @ 12:00 pm (lunch!)


I have the whole “Backroom” reserved for us to eat lunch and work on rides.


So, start thinking about the riding season and show up with some great ideas and your appetite! I will bring a calendar and hopefully we can pencil in some rides with a road captain.

If you haven’t been on a ride or, are new to the group, please join us!  If you need the “ice” broken, this is a great opportunity to make ice cubes!  

 
Hope to see you there,

 
~ Diane

P.S.  Please plan on eating lunch. The backroom is free for us to use, so let's reciprocate by having lunch!

    Diane rocked it out as usual. This is coming together to be the best group riding season yet. I enjoy the time I spend with everyone in this group.

    I got there late, but I was able to share my ideas on rides. Diane led the meet and was very accommodating. Most of the rides are day rides as they should be, weekends are great for most people. Event, shows, ect. Were discussed but most are not interested. Thanks Diane for your patients, time and effort you put into the group.

    It was really nice to catch up with old friends and meet new riders and make new friends. I think this will be an excelent riding season and look forward to grabbing lots of miles with you all.

    Had a good time at Plank's today. Looks to be a busy riding season. Hope I can make a lot of the rides this year. Good to see sum new faces joining in, and as always, good to see 1nze I've met previously. Looks to be a promising summer. Lets just keep our fingers crossed that Mother Nature cooperates when the rides begin!

    Diane did a great job of puting this event and getting some good rides setup for this coming season. We had a great turn out. Diane's handouts were great.

    Wow... what a turn out! We must all be suffering from "cabin fever" after this winter season! Can't wait to ride...

    Tom and I had lunch at Planks today and it was absolutely delicious! This is the original one on Parsons ave, since 1939. I checked out the "backroom" and it is going to be kinda cozy tight! They said they have had 40 in there but I honestly think 35-36 people at the most. This is where I mentioned accurate attendance comes in to play! Of course there is the rest of the restaurant to use for lunch and we can cozy up in the backroom for trip planning. Plenty of parking too!

    Yep - sold the Virago a couple weeks ago now. Sad to see it go - but the new guy and his wife will enjoy it. Perhaps even come on a ride with us! Replaced it with a '01 Honda Shadow Sabre 1100. Rides great! Can't wait to get out there!

    Bruce ~ Plan on two Hocking Hills runs! I have to feed the "lean" addiction! Rob, good to see you have rides! Did you get your bike sold? Jeff, did you get my email about bike shopping? Vicki, it can't hurt to bring a map. I was looking for paper maps too, I found an Atlas of Ohio county maps online for $19.99. Gotta check Wally World....

  • Rob T.

    I've got 4 ride suggestions I'll be bringing to lunch. Three are 3-4 hour rides and another that can be as short or as extended as we make it.

  • Bruce W.

    I'd be happy to and I'll accept that nomination. LOL! Can't wait for it to warm up and the riding season can get underway.

    Nick, I like your thinking! And..... I have the perrrrfect road captain in mind! I nominate Bruce to take us on another fantastic ride through the hills! He will take you on a ride you will never forget!

    I'm pretty new to the area, I'm originally from Cincy, but I'm thinking Hocking Hills, somewhere southeast sounds nice...

    ok, the "guest" part of attendance wasn't turned on for this Meetup. You didn't have that option to count them in to the attendance. It is now turned on!

    All, please reflect the correct head count in your attendance. If two of you are attending, please put 1 as a guest. I need an accurate count! Thanks!
