Meeting?

I was just thinking about all the people on the forum that I've been communicating with, and I wonder if we'll ever try to have a mass get together. Maybe talk about our different cycling interests, go do some cycling, maybe even get newbies to riding a mentor who they can hang with and ride with and get tips on technique and form.... get together for some serious riding... and I mean all of the people from all of the different forums congregating. What is the likelihood that Joe can arrange for this? I'd be very willing to help organize and pick a site and get everyone coordinated! And I pick either Canada, Seattle, anyplace in Colorado, or San Diego as a meeting point.

?

I think you just want to get out of Chicago!

I vote for Winnepeg in Canada or Las Vegas (The bike show is in October) or Corpus Christie, TX. --but not in the summer. Spring or Fall.

Perhaps we could do a poll here, and the place with the most votes, we can make some plans for either fall (preferable) or late spring. It can be like a woodstock of cycling....

Agreed. Here on the Gold Coast right now we are confronted with temperatures in the low 20s celsius pretty much day and night. Might be best to get here before the water runs out though.

Incidentally, meetings have already happened. I went for a ride with Cabledonut here a couple of months back, and I rode with Allister (who seems to have mysteriously disappeared) last year.

I will be in Winnepeg in 2 weeks time. Toronto would not be a good place while the garbage collectors are on strike and the temperature is 25-30C. Montreal is currently covered by a blanket of smoke from forest fires 500 km N of here.

I am NOT going to the States. Won't be able to hear anyone speak over the gunfire down there.

What about Nova Scotia, east coast of Canada? We'll ride the Annapolis Valley! We'll eat lobster, pick strawberries, swim in the ocean, and not have to dodge bullets like the States.

Hey, come on down to TEXAS we'll fix
your hearing problem.
Digger, you ever been to the states, or are you just
repeating all the bull**** that you've ever heard?

Been there, didn't hear any gunfire I admit.

But my wife's cousin, who has a house here, and who was born and raised in Arizona, checks his gun at the border when he visits during the summer.

ooooo the shivers up and down my spine when I think of that place.

BUT I'd better be careful what I say, they might send up the F-18s to take this place out.

Seriously....

I spoke to Joe, and it will probably be too late to have one this year. We're thinking perhaps in the spring. In all honestly and likelihood, it wouldn't be in Australia. I've been there too, and through my sister's marriage, we have kin in Melbourne and Perth, so I know it's a great place, but the majority of people who seem to post are on the North American continent. The prices to get to Australia even in the off season would bankrupt us. So I'm not thinking that would be in the works. Europe is not that bad. Sometimes the prices to Europe from the USA are cheaper than the prices for travelling from the midwest to California, so I could see Europe. But Australia.... that's a bit of a stretch....

So I think what I'll do is do a poll on all the forums and see where the places are people would like to go for the late spring and then let's see if we can pull it off for the first annual bikeforums "convention".

South Florida is nice in the late spring.I bet you could even convince people to met here in the winter or early spring.There is a good base of members here and the rides along the coast or in the central part of the state are excellant.

Hmmmmmm..... sounds like a good idea. I will have more time to work on this next week, so let me think about it and post some dates and places for a mini-meeting. With all the people from the midwest that post here, it could definitely turn into something!
