Just thought I'd throw this out there. Looking for someone of average ability to ride with once or twice a week for the summer. I've been riding since '91, but haven't been able to ride very often over the last few years because of work and family obligations. Basically, my physical conditioning is lacking, so I'm not about to ride with an "expert" type rider. Just need someone to force me to get out and ride regularly! lol If anyone is interested, send me a PM or e-mail me at [email protected]
Thanks.

I hear ya, I am in pretty much the same boat. We had two kids over the last 3 years and it is hard to get the time to do anything. I am forced to ride early in the morning before everyone is up. An even then I am only getting out 2-3 a week at the most. :(

Yeah, it's pretty tough sometimes. We've got a 15 m/o and, normally, my wife and I work opposite shifts (first for her, second ['til midnite] for me) so that eats into my time even more. She's on disability right now with back problems, so I figured I'd try to make the most of my "play" time and try to get out some. Plus, I've got a friend coming home from Chicago in August, and I need to be able to hang. He absolutely handed me my a$$ last year, making up for all the times I owned him on the trails in the past! lol
(LH, if you're on here, ya know I'm f**king with ya!)

Well, wish me luck! I'll be heading out Friday morning for my first ride since last September. Terrible, I know. I guess I'll pretty much go easy, try to build up to some good long rides. If anyone sees a "Solar Citrus" i-Drive sitting on the side of the trail, say hello!

Peace.

Actually, I went this past Friday at about 11:00. Won't be out at all this week as I'm taking the family to Ocean City, Md. My next ride will probably be July 2nd, and possibly on the 4th again.
Went out for about an hour-and-a-half. Just took it easy on the bridal path, taking in the scenery and such. I'll more than likely do the same on my next ride, maybe longer though. After that, all bets (on my safety!) are off. Legs didn't feel too bad, but damn, I gotta quit smoking!!

If anyone is up for it, I'll be heading out from Bruno's at about 9:00 a.m. Friday, the 2nd. Just another easier ride, maybe a few trails. Unless, of course, someone shows up to push me a little harder.

Peace.

Bruno's is a small resturant/bistro at Germantown Pike and Wissahickon Avenue. It's right up the road from the main trailhead in Montco. That's where I usually start from.
Anywho, if Friday doesn't work, I'll also be going out on Sunday or Monday............
