It’s back: Our annual attempt to match you with a tandem partner on the ride of life. Could this be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for? Only one way to find out: Sign up!
As in years past, this event is meant to be a fun way to connect with other singles who ride bikes. Here’s how it works:
You will go on short “dates” with each participant of the opposite sex. The dates will be 4-minute bike rides along a preset route. You’ll receive a booklet to keep track of who you want to follow up with. After the event, we’ll collect the booklets and later notify you of any matches.
IMPORTANT: There will be two separate Speed Date events. Round 1 is for those 35’ish and younger and will be on Tuesday, July 29th. Round 2 is for those 35’ish and older and will be on Tuesday, August 5th. You choose which round is right for you.
- Who: An equal number (a dozen or so) guys and gals,* first come first served.
- Where: Meet at the shop (here’s a map)
- When: Meet at 6 p.m. Ride at 6:30. Finish at 7:30 and then, if you want, join us for a drink at a neighborhood watering hole (TBD).
- What to bring: 1) Your bike! 2) An openness to making new friends will put you in the right frame of mind. 3) A few interesting questions to ask during your date rides. There’s only so many times someone wants to answer the question, “So what do you do?”
How to sign up: Send us an email letting us know your name, gender, age (roughly is fine), and which round you’re signing up for.
Looking forward to it!*In the past we’ve attempted to host gay and lesbian speed date events, but didn’t reach a critical mass of participants so had to cancel. If you’re interested in this type of event, shoot us an email. If we get enough folks signed up, we’ll gladly host a Slow Ride Speed Date for you!
