I have a few of reasons for asking.
1) It would be good to network and find out about good rides in our region.
2) It is always good to increase your riding buddy list in case your mates can't make a specific date for a ride. ( like this weekend because it is my wife's birthday and I am missing out on a ride- weather is wet and cold anyway)
3) Having an e-mail contact list is a great way to advertise rides to the target group, rather than relying on them seeing the ride posted on a forum.
4) When a ride comes up that you want to communicate information to the group; you can. Such as last minute cancellations, starting place /time changes.
So if you are living in the region of the "long grey cloud" please reply.
Couldn't agree more, doesn't hurt to have a yarn!
