Betasso Mix & Mingle successful despite (fraking weird) spring weather!
Although the rain threatened to stop the Mix & Mingle ride before it started, surprisingly enough, the ride went well. Thanks to the people that showed up anyway. We had 12 or so riders and, I think, everybody had a good time.
It was raining HARD on the way up Canyon but by the time we all got saddled up and ready to ride, things were pretty good. A light sprinkle followed us some of the ride but the trail held up well. One figure eight around Canyon Loop and Benjamin got things going and then Back Country Pizza was nice enough to clear a whole room for us for dinner. Sorry, no pix. The rain kinda keeps the electronics safely tucked away inside my pack.
Here's a question for ya. How's the best way to let people know about social rides esp. Mix & Mingle? Last nights riders (and runner) unanimous answer was the BMA newsletter, so I'll make sure the newsletter is updated with info about each ride. There is this blog, the BMA calendar, Facebook, Twitter, direct email, and the Mix & Mingle BMA web group. Let me know (via your method of choice) so I can put my effort into the most efficient contact method.
