Why do you join BOB? Select 1 or more: Train for an event , which event? Make friends. Start exercising. New riding routes. Other (please specify)

My home is in Rock Creek and I usually start from there and I want new vistas. It is also more fun to ride in a group where everyone likes to ride.

How often do you ride? How long do you ride? At what speed do you ride?

Two to four times per week at a 16mph average. My wife and I share a tandem and we do a lot of riding together.

What has been the longest ride you have been on recently?

60 miles in the country is just fine with me.

Which type of rides will you prefer? Short (easy 10-20 mile) casual? Intermediate (12 mph or so, 35 mile plus)? Challenging (40 mile plus with hills, 16 mph)? A mix or other (please specify)

I'm from Vermont where there are hills everywhere - so I like hills and challenging rides.

What areas would you like ride ?

Wherever the road is dry and there are new routes.


Hi, With over 30 years riding under my belt I still find the pure enjoyment of the sport. It's one seat I like to be in but don't like getting out of (that is when it hurts). See you on a ride.

What Jim E. is saying about this Meetup Group

Fun. More miles - more smiles.
