Cypress riders unite!

Has anyone ever thought about getting together with a small group for last minute rides after work or just whenever?

I'm hooked on the group rides but during the early months of the year I work seven days a week and won't be able to make a lot of them.

The idea behind this thread is for all the riders in the cypress 290/249/1960 to sign up on a facebook group. When one of us wants to go for a ride post it on the page meet spot and the time you plan to leave the meet spot. If it's in your favorites and you have automatic notifications on your phone you will get the post immediately.

I think it's a good way to turn a short random solo ride into a nice small group ride.

Surely I'm not the first one to think of this. Maybe some more experienced riders can chime in and let me know if something like this is already going on, or if for whatever reason this is a bad idea.

Here is the link to the page if your interested in participating:
Edit: I changed it to a group page, so that everyone who joins gets the notifications. https://www.facebook.com/groups/269527659867527/

The idea behind this thread is for all the riders in the cypress 290/249/1960 area to exchange phone numbers. You could save all of the numbers to a separate contact list in your phone. When one of us wants to go for a ride you send out a blanket text to the whole contact group with a meet spot and the time you plan to leave the meet spot.

I think it's a good way to turn a short random solo ride into a nice small group ride.

Surely I'm not the first one to think of this. Maybe some more experienced riders can chime in and let me know if something like this is already going on, or if for whatever reason this is a bad idea.
Large group texts get annoying. Find a couple of buddies with your schedule & send a PM.

Or start the Katy/Cypress meets again and everyone will know everyone in the area?

Man, those were some good days?

Chris_5.0, Rykoson or HalfFast, where you is?

Page has been created. I've edited my original post with the link.

Thanks for the idea newrider.

Don't worry about it...

We used to have a Katy/Cypress meet at the BWW on hwy6 by West Little york. It was one of the bigger meets and went on for a while. At it's peek we had about 80 people and a steady 30-40 riders would show up every week.

It slowly died though after a few people got lazy and didnt post it. Don't wanna name names but it's Chris 5.0 and Rykoson

Seriously, those were some fun meets back in the day...Brothers Pizza and then a "slow and steady" ride to PP1....oh lawd...
