My car parts didn't come in this week. Would anyone mind giving me a lift to the trail?

Wherever we ride, we will meet at 0930 for the ride, rolling promptly at 1000. That gives everyone a half an hour to get their back reassembled, get dressed, etc., before we move out. Standing rule now is rolling at 1000, unless you call an organizer (John, Steve, or me) to request a delay.

Too many rules makes this not fun. Hard to get new people on board when we start to establish rules for things that ought to be fun. We already have many that strayed and do all their riding on their own. I have been late to a couple of events, but I have also waited on many people myself.

I only brought up a plan meet and start time because I don't like to stand around the start site (i.e. someone's car) ... ... [edited by moderator]

Bobby,

I read your message before the moderator graciously stepped in. I have no issue with rules. I have followed rules for a long time. However, at this age I like to relax a bit. I have been riding with the club for about two and a half years and believe me I know I have been late to many rides, especially on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I get off work at 1730 and still try to make a ride that starts at 1800 after a half-hour drive; it was either that or not ride at all. I know I was the butt of many jokes, everyone knew I would be late. Up to now I did not think people were really bothered by it. Well, back to the point I was trying to make. This club has a hard time recruiting and maintaining new people. It might be the fitness factor, might be fear, lesser riding skills or it may be something else. What the exact issue is, I do not know, but I do know that people are scared off by rules. That is not to say that you cannot establish rules for your rides, and you are right you should not have to wait on me.

Dan
