I’ve been toying with this idea for a while… to put the word out there about organising a monthly get together for Greater Manchester bicyclists, who enjoy their bikes as a mode of transport.
There are many groups out there for the bike as a sport, all of them with some lovely people! But there isn’t much to share and enjoy bikes as everyday transport.
“Bicyclists Who Brunch” is just a start, I’d love to hear more ideas on what we could call this group. I’ve chosen the word bicyclists to start off with as this gives me the feel of people, who use their bike leisurely, to go from A to B, relaxed without needing to feel like they have to race. I would like not to use the overused words of ‘chic’ or ‘slow’ etc… you know, something a bit… different.
To meet one Saturday a month perhaps, open to all, young and old, men and women, singles, couples and families! So long as you see your bike as a friend and a travel companion. And cycling in your everyday clothes 🙂
Maybe for the group to start after the worse of winter, so that more people feel they can take part and cold + ice won’t put us off?! With each monthly meeting in a different location, so that the distance to be travelled to meet up can be shared equally.
What do you think? Would you come? And if you have/think of a better name than Bicyclists do say!
