We like to ride. But sometimes we need a destination...somewhere interesting to go, where there will be interesting people to talk to. This group is NOT about organizing group rides, but rather to give riders a place to ride to. We'll pick times and places in the Baltimore/Washington area where riders can be sure there'll be a friendly face to chat about our bikes (or whatever), and maybe grab something to nibble and drink.
Some destinations may be interesting landmarks, some may be as mundane as a local Starbucks. We may stop at area motorcycle dealerships and perhaps some motorcycle events hosted by other groups. The point is to give riders a destination and purpose rather than just riding around.
Unlike other Meetups, joining Ride-In and Hang-Out doesn't commit you to a membership in a motorcycle club or riding group. Attending our Meetup events is as easy as showing up and saying "hi."
It's all about adding a social component to our rides and making them even more interesting. I have no doubt that new friendships will spring up, and you may even find a new riding buddy. But that's all up to you.
