Yes! I tried to ride with the Critical Mass groupies, but always ended up stopping to talk to the patrol officers who were chasing them.  This might be more my style!

Thanks Mike! You gave me just the motivation I needed! Be watching soon, folks, for the new Meetup group, A Vote for Austin Clean Air. My goal is to chart a course where everyone either bikes or rides a bus together to set locations. If interested, hit reply and I'll set it up! Joan

Very good reply, Leticia! There are far fewer leaders than followers, but it's easy to change. I am a member of several meetup groups, and I simply say what, where, when, how, ....and I go do what I want to. Most times, people join me: Sometimes, it's just me doing something  I enjoy. And sometimes the response is overwhelming!
For those of you who have never tried this, try it soon. It might open up a whole new world for you, like it did for me.

Mike

Hello All --

For my own reasons, I am not comfortable in these places as well, but I thought I'd mention a few points that haven't been discussed. These kind of places might not be a good place for people who are recovering alcoholics, trying to watch what they eat, cannot afford to eat out a lot, etc. 

There, is however, a solution. 

One of the great things about this particular meet up group, is that anyone can place on the schedule a meet-up. So, for example, if I want to go walking on a Wednesday morning, I can put a date/time/place scheduled meet-up there and others can join me. Likewise, if I put one an hour later that says, "Breakfast at Kerby Lane" others can join that as well. 

There have been meet-ups for this group that include hiking, bowling, happy hours, and movie watching. Lately, the 'happy hour' group has been scheduling meet-ups, but that is not keeping others from doing likewise with their date/time/place/interest. 

So, if you'd like to see other meet-ups that don't involve drinking, may I suggest scheduling one about one to two weeks ahead of time and see who joins you. 

Thanks, 
Leticia

Not to be condescending, but I would really like to know way so many of you feel you have to Drink to have a good time? I do not drink of any kind, and I can have a good time without drinking. I would love to join you all some social things. But since I do not drink, I don't feel comfortable join you at bars and taverns.
 
Sincerely,
 
Kate
