You decide this weekends ride days....

Since its Labor Day Weekend you probably have far better plans than to ride with us....if not i will be happy to post rides either sat, Sun or mon...post up which days you would be able to ride and i can plan accordingly...

As much as i dont want to do this i think it may be neccesary to limit the amount that we have each ride...my opinion is it would make for a better ride experience...its very difficult to keep up with a large group and i dont like splitting groups...any opinions you have are appreciated...im thinking around 8 would be a good number...please feel free to comment...

What?! Noooo...don't limit it! I've ridden with you in various sized groups and have enjoyed each one equally. I understand it might be a different story as the leader to keep track of everyone, but as a rider I've never had a problem. If you really feel it necessary, you should do groups with specific skill levels and rotate through them. One weekend do a ride for newer riders, the following weekend for intermediate riders, the following for experienced riders, and the next for jimrad, bevo and your son. LOL

I have out-of-town plans for this weekend so won't be able to join you for a ride. I had a blast yesterday, as always, and loved the bonus ride to lake Somerville we took after lunch. It was beautiful. Going around that circle was SO MUCH FUN. I was laughing the whole time. I'm laughing right now thinking about it. Can't wait to do it again. Hope you had a happy and memorable birthday hanging out with all of us.

As long as everyone is happy with larger groups thats fine with me...as for the skill levels ive tried those and they dont work very well...saw threads about people wanting newb rides so i make one...none of the ones who were interested ever posted...as for Jimrad, Bevo and my son there out of my league...i might be a good sweep rider for them...lol
The all skills levels work very well as long as everyone finds there correct spot in line based on there comfort zone...i know i mention that alot but it really is the key to the flow of the group...
Isnt it funny that a simple little circle is so much fun?...you wouldnt believe how many riders want to do that each time we ride...
Yesterday was great...i was in awe of the group that showed up...we really enjoy riding and socializing with all of you...we look forward to each weekend ride...
