We did it again. Bike Night went over 100 for the second week in a row. That puts the three week average at 95!
Besides the large turnout lastnight it was exciting to see so many first time riders. I asked how many folks were riding for the first time, about 20 raised their hand. It was really wonderful to see so many new faces giving Bike Night a go. Thanks!
Bike Night has really grown over the past two years. A good turn out used to be 15 or 20, now we're attracting upwards to 110. Incredible. I think that goes to the word of mouth of riders. You guys are out there talking to eachother and to other people who might be interested in trying it out.
Last year a core group of riders formed around Bike NIght and like any grass roots activity it's the actions of that small group that help attract new people. I'd like to thank Rob, Dave, Carl, Randy, Libby, Tiffany and Wes, and of course Kelly. You guys have done a great job of helping out and building Bike Night. Thanks.
Change is inevitable and with that we'll be announcing something exciting next week at the ride. (June 23). I really want to tell you now, but we haven't got all the details worked out just yet. So stay tuned!
