Meeting new people is a challenge and do you ever find yourself having more than enough things to do but no one to do it with. Expect an eclectic mix of activities ranging from flea markets to movies, plays or concerts, possible outdoorsy stuff like kayaking or bicycling and more (whatever randomly pops in our heads or you suggest). Expect food of some sort before, after or during many events.
This group is for people who don't take themselves too seriously and want to meet others in small groups.
Feel free to start a discussion about the random fun stuff you want to due on a short notice.
If you want to be an event host so you may post an outing just let us know. The cool thing about hosting is you pick, the what, where and when of things that you want to do!

I hope to do the 65 mile route but I am sure several folks will be doing different lengths, and you can change what you select.
On other charity rides I have found it good to add a link on my emails, such as,
PS I am trying to raise money to fight diabetes by riding 100 km, please donate or join my team at http://main.diabetes.org/goto/schlimme
By doing so I have gotten an amazing response on other rides I have done, far exceeding my initial fund raising goal. You never know who may have a personal interest in fighting a disease such as diabetes.
So if you pay the $15 to register now, your signature request could be working for you the next five months.
