That old fashioned style
Cranky Sundays and Sugar Spokes would like to present:
The Bike Mixer
The idea is simple... taking a cue from the sockhops and 'mixers' of the 50s where young ladies and gentlemen were introduced in an informal situation we thought it'd be great for the two rides to get together and actually meet one another properly (rather than the sideways glances across the room etc).
The basics of the plan are for the two rides to meet up at an agreed location for a bbq/picnic. We go for a variation of our normal sunday ride, we meet the ladies who will do their own ride there. We have an old-fashioned good time...
It'll give both rides a bit of a social crossover and it'll give a few of the crankys boys who have 'better halves' a chance to encourage them to come out. It's unfortunate they know us, but maybe they'll meet some other ladies who like to ride?
I'm chaperoning so be on your best behavior ;)
The date is Sunday 1st November [original date now confirmed again]
Location will be suitable for all parties - and will suit picking up ladyfriends/wives if they dont join us for the main ride.
Shine your shoes and slick your hair...
