I need a rider to ride with
« on: June 04, 2007, 08:00:03 PM »
I've been always wanted to ride with someone on the trail but don't really know alot of people. I usually ride intermediate and enjoy hitting steep hills and jumps. I live in the Plant City area and liking riding Alafia and Boyette and other areas like Santos and etc.

Now that I look what I just typed, it look like I'm trying to find a date!! :D :D

I won't date ya', but I'll meet for some rides.  Although I am a bit busy of late.  The next two Saturdays I have trail workdays, but Sundays are either group rides or rides anywhere.  My work schedule puts me home late in the afternoon/early evening.  Hah, so I guess you're SOL....LOL  Kidding. 

Anyway, hit the group rides Sunday; Tuesday evening Hole-In-The-Fence rides; or Thursday evening Boyette or Alafia rides.  Meeting those folks you will probably find other opportunities to ride as well.

Hey KJ,

I ride almost everyday these days, always open to riding with new people. Hit me up with a PM we can swap phone numbers.

Thanks for all the reply and offers. The deal I have is my only day is Saturday in the morning till mid afternoon to ride. After that I go out and spent time with my family since that is the only day I have to do so. Then Sunday, I have to watch my 2 year old little girl while wife work in the morning and the weekday I work then come home and watch my little girl again while my wife work the mid shift. Crazy schedule but this is the only way it working out for me. All I know is I don't like riding alone on the trail and seem to enjoy riding with someone instead.

KJ
I'm not sure if I will be out at Alafia or not this Saturday.  I sometimes like to get together with a small group on Saturday mornings.  Let me know if your interested and I will see if I can get the group together for this Saturday.

Is it alright if I join you guys on Saturday?  Still sort of a newbie, but I've been riding at least once every weekend since I started riding 4 months ago.  If OK, PM me time and digits.

Right there with ya.  Those are the only 2 trails that I haven't done either.  I walked Moonscape a couple of weeks ago.  There is some pretty gnarly stuff in there!
