    Enjoyed the ride last night. It was nice meeting you all and I wish we could have socialized more. I agree that a social aspect would be great too. I'm signed up for the two upcoming Saturday rides where we will have more time for meals and gas breaks.

    As for the rides on Friday night, I propose we ride some and finish with a destination for a coffee or ice cream or whatever and get to know each other better. I also propose we start a little earlier if possible. If we stop in-between I fear we will not ride much. I checked Google Maps and we only rode about 60 miles before we broke up near Crestwood. I guess this is a little far for a late afternoon ride for some so I'm open to other routes.

    Last year I went to a couple of bike nights at Kingfish in Jeffersonville and it was social alright (and no riding except to get there) but it was beer drinking which is not a good mix with riding. I'm looking for riding then relaxing with ice cream.

      I've been to a lot of those and one need not drink any alcohol to enjoy it. I never drink when I ride, so at those I just have a soda, maybe eat something and enjoy the company. Perhaps a ride/day trip to a museum/event one weekend would be nice. Did that while I was riding with Creek Riders, in Florida and we always had a blast. Just a thought, because riding is more than just riding, it is the places it takes you, both outside and within the soul.

      If there are bike nights that you all know about, or wish to plan any rides, please make use of the "Suggest a Meetup" function on the KMM home page. As for the time on Friday nights, there were a few people who couldn't make it any earlier because of work so I set the time for 7:30. I'm game for socializing after also. Next time let's make it happen.

    Most of the rides that I experienced in Florida were much shorter, by comparison to this and were usually to a particular destination, such as a bike night or a restaurant to hang out talk and socialize. This ride was a lot of fun since there is only ONE real twisty road in Florida (Snake Road) and it is flat with no hills, so this ride was far better than even that one.

      Thought it was a great ride but wouldn't mind a social part too so I could get to know who I was riding with...

      The social part is half of being in a group or club.

    Might be running a little late, but should be there before stands up time.

    I promised my wife to spend the day with her but I will try to make it. No firm commitment though.

      Definitely bring her along for the ride. I hope we see you both tonight.

  • Joy k.

    Hope to be there... Will be my first time riding in a group though

      With all of my riding experience in formations and with clubs, just hang with me, as long as I do actually make it this time, and you will be just fine. :)

      Seeing as there are only going to be a few of us, this would be a great opportunity for you to start out riding with other people. Start small then come on some of the longer trips with more people.

    I am definitely making the ride this week. I've had to skip the last couple so I'm looking forward to it. Spread the word, and let's get a few more riders going.

    Going to try this again, since I will not be working that day and will not sleep past the meetup.
