If you are available on weekdays you are welcome to come to our Geezer meetings. We get together at a coffee shop (normally in South Lyon) to solve the worlds problems, discuss the proper oil to use in whatever we are riding, assist noobs with Basecamp and GPS issues, and sometimes plan rides. you could use this opportunity to talk up some mid week dirty rides. At least 4 of the regulars appreciate a good gravel road.
Watch the forum for a schedule. I usually post it this section. We will probably do one next week. I have an email list for the regulars. PM me with your address if you want to be put on it.
