"How many riders are you expecting?" I got this question posed to me twice on Friday. I always find this question interesting, since most of my rides don't require registration. How am I supposed to know how many people are coming? Sure, I can get a few people tell me that they are interested, but… Continue reading Ride Report: Sunset/Moonrise Ride, 13 Sept 2019
