We are a group of riders who seek to socialize with other riders in an enjoyable and safe environment. Our mission statement below and motto of "No Bonz About It" succinctly reflects what our group is about and will continue to strive for throughout our existence.
MISSION: In the 1400s, people were "making bones about it" when they wanted to raise a fuss, cause discord, create dissension, promote gossip, or had difficulty with accepting something. "No Bonz About It" means avoiding "bones" and respecting the privacy and decisions of each member of our group, the group, and others, and, when necessary, holding discussions in a respectful and clear way which leaves little room for dispute or "bonz". As social riders, we will promote a safe, stress-less, and fun-filled environment for ALL riders at all times; ensuring no one is endangered, stranded, nor left behind during our rides.
No Bonz About It SRG will not collect dues nor any money except when "individually" agreed on for specific occasions such as a party or benevolent offering; as presented. Donations to church and charitable organizations are considered private contributions and, with limited exceptions, will not be collected by the group. Although there are no mandatory meetings, we will, periodically, host a face-to-face gathering of family and friends or a conference call for vested members.
Our social rides and events are as open as our membership and will include:
- church, charity, and social rides;
- local and out-of-city/state rides;
- breakfast/lunch/dinner rides;
- rides to entertainment, outdoor/indoor, and sport events;
- and other rides as presented by our members and friends.
There will be a discussion of the route, a safety briefing, and a prayer before each ride and a prayer at the end of each ride before going our separate ways.
No Bonz About It SRG is comprised of vested members and non-vested friends. Our growth will never cause us to depart from the core principles and guidelines presented above. To this end, a committee, consisting of vested riders, is in place to provide oversight for maintaining the structure and basic principles established for NBAI SRG. Although a committee is in place, all meetup members are encouraged to bring ideas and concerns before the committee and the family at any time.
NBAI SRG is truly a group for people who want to ride and interact with fun, mature, and safe people and then go home with smiles on their faces.
You "Choose the Ride!" You "Ride the Ride!" No Bonz About It!
NOTE: ONLY MEMBERS WITH VESTS CAN POST MEETUP RIDES FOR THE GROUP. However, we will support all worthy events introduced to NBAI for participation. Events must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org for discussion among NBAI vested members and placement on the meetup calendar by NBAI Co-Organizers.
