Default Spontaneous Rideout Text Alerts??!

Anyone interested in sharing mobile numbers so we can make others aware if we're going out for a ride and looking for company? I know we can post on here, but who logs in on Sunday morning?!

The weather forecast said rain today so I didn't bother posting any plans for a Sunday ride, but in fact this morning was okay - no rain at all. So I hopped on the bike and hit the road from Woking to Newlands Corner & Box Hill. It got me thinking that a quick text to local riders an hour before or so and we could've got a group together.

Box Hill / Newlands Corner is easy for me, but sometimes I head for Basingstoke and the A33 up to Reading. I'm sure you guys have got some good routes too.

Thoughts???

Great idea.......
But may be 2 hours plus notice would be better.
it takes me roughly 1 hour to get to box hill.
may be a next day notice ? .......

Sounds like a good idea, but I don't really know any good local routes.

If I am not busy I am usually up for mooching round on the bike - and yeah two hours might be better.

I'm about 1/2 hours ride from boxhill, but like Tony, it takes me a while to get all me gear on and get out the door, but I'm allowed being female and all, whats your excuse Tony

my excuse is..
Inner gloves, outer gloves velco put into right place,
helmet put on over head scarf,
Making sure my ipod head phones are in a nice and comfortable place,
ah and checking to make sure I have the right play list and the volume is ok.
And last but most important I have my chewing gum I my mouth.
Last time I ended up stopping on the motorway to lock my helmet and ended doing 3 figures to catch everyone up.
After this check Iím happy to ride for the next few hours without stopping..
or it could be, i'm just slow.............. ha ha ha

Good idea, I do most of my computing at work so I tend to drop off the planet at the weekends.
