Hi there, Les here again. Just some more ideas for rides
Saturday, January 16, 2010 12:35 PM
At the end of the summer we will have a ride to Collingwood. I would like those of you who want to be on such a ride to find a date when we can do it with an alternative rain date. And we will book it in. Like Sept. 1st
I rode to King City when I was in better shape, but if I go out on all these rides, I will be by the end of the summer. I may want to ride to Port Perry as it is a very nice ride, but there is no way I am riding back. (hehehehahahaha) So what I want to do is bring my car there with my bike trailer. I can Take 6 or 7 extra bikes but if there is an engineer in our mist, I would like to talk to you, so we can carry more. And I will bring the bikes back. This will have to be a co-ordinated effort. So for those of you who may be interested in this ride, you will have to follow me out there so I can leave my car and trailer and then drive me back so I can ride there with the rest of you. More work? Yes but what isn't?
When should we start riding? And should we go twice a week?
Location where we will start from where we will have free parking in the Yonge and Egg area where I live.
What I would like to do is start with 5 K rides Tuesday nights.
And perhaps another ride Thursday nights. (but I am one guy and may need help with this.
then in May make them 10 k rides
July 20k rides
Aug. 30K rides
What do you think???? If people who are out of shape come to all the Tuesday rights then this is possible with the right health benefits.
I have also contacted other groups like eating raw foods and other groups who may want to enligten us to eating healthy which is something I personally want tfor myself but I am sure you would want this too.
People who comes with horns on their helmets or a light or something creative, get a prize. I would love to see creative bicycles and if you just do not have it in you, I can help you make your bikes look cool. I have contacted a few bike places who will give you guys discounts on all ypes of gadgets.
The first 10 people who show up for a ride get a prize. I will try to make them bicycle related.
A prize for the newest bike and a prize for the oldest.
Please make sure that you wear a helmet, you bike is in good working order and you have a light on the front of you bike and on the back as well.
I am thinking of a Tuesday Night Right starting at 6:30 PM Ending around 9 and meeting at a place where there is TTC access and parking so those of you who will be bringing your bike on the Subway.
We obey the rules of the road
I have been asked if we are going to lear things about how to make adjustments on your bikes. I will look into this and find a store wo would be willing to give us a lesson. Heaven knows I need to be there. hahaheheheeheh
How can we make our rides really fun? What about the last 3 people get t-shorts that say DON'T FOLLOW US, WE'RE LOST TOO.
THERE WILL BE SOME RIDING IN TRAFFIC AND THOUGH AT THE TIMES WE ARE GOING, THE TRAFFIC WILL BE TO A MINIMUM, YOU ALL WIL STILL HAVE TO BE CAREFUL.
sHOULD WE HAVE A WEB SITE OTHER THAN THIS ONE TO PUT ALL OUR STUFF AND INFO. i CAN'T CHANGE THE FNTS AND PUT TEXT IN WITH THE PICTURES HERE, BUT I CAN DO IT IF i CREATE A SITE FOR IT. PLEASE HELP ME HERE.
