Very Creative... User 1! How do you come up with a ride like that? Are you in Kahoots with the owners of these houses?

I get a load of crap from environmental groups licker, and sometime I like to throw a bone out there and see if anyone is interested. :-)
Looks like there's at least SOME interest in this ride, that's encouraging! Any ways there's a map made up for the ride. I'm waiting one owner to see if we can stop by an hour earlier. If they say yeah, then there will be nine stops and the mileage will be under 22 miles.
Here's the map without the ninth stop. The one we're waiting for will be between the start and the first stop, and without any extra mileage added.

I got word back that we'll be able to stop at that ninth house in question. So there's nine stops on this tour.
People are so surprised and happy to hear there's a bicycle tour on their solar tour. LOL Hopefully this sparks a larger effort to showcase what's possible.
I don't have spoke cards made up yet. If there's anyone that can do a simple design, that would be great. I have pouches and Mr. Chicken Leather said he can bring his laminator. So we can do the final production on Saturday.

Dooode, I could help with the design, but I won't be home to work on it until later tonight. Will that be too late?
You guys are gonna be the early morning egg pluckin', rooster catchin', assembly line spoke card engineers. Dang!

This ride was awesome (what I got to see) you all missed really neat things beautiful houses, yards and views.
I couldn't understand why people don't want to come out to these rides USER1 puts on??? then I realized it was because USER1 was putting them on.
Yes you all missed some great things, but to balance it out, you didn't miss USER1 hurling insults at you. Lets just say I took one for the team
on Saturday. WOOT WOOT

Hey did I hurtle any insults at you when you made a slob of yourself while eating? After you not only got catsup on your shirt, but managed to dip your sleeve in some hamburger muck? No, I just pointed out that you did so. I was actually on good behavior yesterday!
Yeah the homeowners we met at stops were freakin awesome people. I was REALLY impressed with the enthusiasm of what they were doing and wanting to share that drive. And at just about every stop we were given MAJOR props for doing the tour on bikes too. They were so excited to learn that there was a group of people doing it on bikes. Even with our small group, we left an impression.
I would much rather have friends that want to be there, than someone that's just hanging out and checking out the scene. So I don't mind the small turnout. I do the rides cause I want to share my enthusiasm for a ride. I'd do it if there was two ridazz showing up or two thousand.
I'll be getting out the spoke cards alter this week to everyone that rode the ride. Ended up the friend that I was working with on this sent the files, but I didn't get it cause of the size of the file. Dave if you're going to Taco Ride Thursday, I can give it to you then. Otherwise I can send it in the mail. Same thing with your friend.
