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.

Yea, but I'd have to be within 20 min of a networked PC.

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

They may be excuses, but it's true.

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

So how was the turnout? How was the ratio of men to women? 2:1?
