Impromptu Ride (THIS IS NOT AN EVENT)
I belong to a tennis Meetup that does this and like the ability to pick up a random match. The way it works is you RSVP YES for this non-event and make sure you are subscribed to comment alerts. (It is the default setting so if you have not muted notifications you are subscribed) When someone leaves a comment saying that they want to ride at a specific time/place etc. you will receive a comment notification. If you want to join them reply to the comment and work out the details. Best practise: When suggesting a ride please begin with the date and time of the proposed ride. Follow that with your proposal. If the thread becomes long and complicated it may become necessary to begin a new thread with the set details so that new comers to the thread can easily determine those details. The excellent CFH event organizers try and maintain a friendly, no drop, culture for this cycling Meetup. These "impromptu" rides are not organized events by CFH event organizers and shouldn't be confused with actual CFH events.

    What we're about

    Are you nervous about riding your road bike or hybrid in traffic? Well the Raleigh metro has miles and miles of paved Greenways which are ideal for giving your heart a good, regular workout! Cycling for Health is a meetup for conditioning and camaraderie among cyclist interested in vigorous, healthy activities. All levels of cyclist are welcome! These are not road races. No one will be dropped. The point is to begin with short, safe trips on one of Raleigh's awesome Greenways and work up to longer and longer trips in order to optimize our health.

    Many cycling clubs are about leaning into it and mashing some gears. (I know, I’m a member of a few and love that sort of riding:) Cycling for Health was set up to be an alternative and is as much about camaraderie as it is about cycling. It is an opportunity for more experienced riders to offer the benefit of their experience as well as encouragement to newer cyclist. It’s also about conditioning and overall health. In keeping with this ideal we will stop as often as is necessary to re-group so as to keep the group together. Also, if you want to explore other sections of the Greenway or just want to add miles please wait until the conclusion of the organized ride. I may join you:)
