I wonder if any of you folks ever took a loved one out on a date using a bicycle?

If so, where'd you go?

I think it'd be really cool to go to a drive-in movie theather. It'd be my way of capturing a dying culture...

Try a progressive Bike & Dine ... Pick 3 or 4 cool eating places and bike to each one for a different course. Bike & Dines are usually put on by bike clubs, but you can easily design your own . Here is a description of one that was organized by Chicagoland Bicycle Federation this summer

Try a credit card tour over a long weekend. Leave from your driveway or transport your bikes to a convenient starting location. Ride a comfortable distance to an interesting place on the first day. Stay in a good motel (a place with a jacuzzi is nice) and eat at a good restaurant. Spend the next day seeing the local sights via bike. Ride back on the third day.

[edited to add this:]
E.g. recent trips my wife and I made were Freeport, IL to New Glarus WI, and home to Chesterton and Michigan City, IN.
