i dont know if any one else is using meetup.com but i found it the other night browsing the world wide web. i joined a group called NASHVILLE-SLOW-RIDE. it seems like a cool way of finding rides in Nashville and other areas.
just thought i would share what i found it may not be for everyone but for a average to beginner rider this may be a way to put in a few more miles. you can also create your own group if you like for what ever you may want to meetup for.
