Weekly weekend rideout?

Anyone on for getting a weekly rideout going? Now that its coming back into the good weather I know a lot of people will want to be getting out on their bikes more often. I was out for a good few hours on my own on Saturday and really enjoyed it!

Unfortunately Sunday's aren't good for me so I'd be much more on for a regular Saturday spin if anyone is on for it.

Any takers?

I was out on Saturday with a few lads myself. It was a great day for it!

I'm on a few bike forums and I usually go for a Sunday spin with them as it just suits better, but there HAS been occasion when I would have preferred to go on the Saturday as Sundays tend to be busy with MotoGP, road racing, Mondello etc. so if there was a regular Saturday rideout here, I'd be more than happy to make an appearance at a few.

I'd be up for it. Still a bit new to biking so it'd be nice to have more experienced riders to cruise around with.

Is there anyone interested in this around the Clare/Limerick area? Don't think my modest 250cc machine would fancy regular trips to Dublin.

I only went on my first spin two weekends ago with the IBF guys. I loved it.

I'd definitely head out with you on a Saturday. I'm in Dublin so I think Clare/Limerick is a bit of a stretch for me.

Actually it might not be a bad idea to team up with them if they would be on for it, might not be enough of us on here to warrant a weekly one of our own...

What if we tried a once a month ride out.
So, for example, the second Saturday of the month.

I used to go out with them too, but the whinging got a bit much. Some of them are nice folks though.

That'd be worth trying. I see my kids every second Saturday but if the rideout falls on a day I don't have them, I'm there!
