- Riding friends. Where have they all gone?
Used to be out in groups of 10 or more, now lucky to get 3 people together…Posted 9 years ago
Just seem to be riding more by myself these days.
The rest are now abroad, or have found new hobbies. A couple of friends are repeatedly pulling out the hangover/children card, I only ever see them in the pub now. Anyone else finding the same?WorldClassAccidentMember
I am having to limit the Big Bike Bash to 500. You can come to that if you want to meet lots more people.
I ran the STW Southern Festival last year in my back garden and that has evolved into 30-40 riders who ride together regularly. Not all at once but normally in reasonable size groups.Posted 9 years agoLardLoverMember
We’ve seemed to have drifted apart too, not sure why.
I now just go out on my own, when I want. If I don’t feel like going I stay in, or if I want a lie in I have one. I’ve also lost a bit of interest (connected? probably) and now find myself drawn to the dark side.
Miss the company though 🙁
Any fancy a Billy-No-Mates STW meet? You must come on your own (although shared lifts, arranged pick-ups of “strangers” is allowed 🙄Posted 9 years agosofatesterMember
I know the feeling as all my old racing/riding buddies have faded away. I suppose they might have realized there where more important things in life than riding a bike in the mud/ice/snow/rain*. Can’t think what though. perhaps we should start a thread on that?
