    Singles Ride this Saturday 12/29 -- Menlo Park

    Hey everybody! Velo Girls hosts a monthly co-ed singles ride and our next one is this Saturday, December 29th. We meet @ the Menlo Park CalTrain Station @ 1:00. The route is top-secret, but we'll ride about 20-25 miles at a casual, social pace (to encourage the mission of the ride which is to meet other single cyclists). Post-ride, we gather at the British Bankers Club for beer, food, and socializing.

    Hey, it's not too late to meet a date for New Year's Eve, right?

    The forecast is a bit questionable, but come on out anyways and if it's too nasty we'll just skip the ride and jump right into the beer-drinking!

    More details here -- http://www.velogirls.com/calendar.php

    Too bad I'm on call this weekend, through New Year's day, otherwise I'd be all for this.

    doesn't "on call" mean you can do whatever you want....until they "call" you?

    EV-DO card, laptop, and backpack. It's a social ride so they won't mind the backpack

    Is the ride still on? Casual, social pace means I will not be hating myself for bringing the fixed gear?
