Absolutely perfect weather greeted 30 riders as we toed the line at Attitude for the July networking ride. Actually 31, as Jim Mitchell missed the launch but followed behind solo.
A great time was had by all – once again we held the speed to a comfortable chat pace. Billy O. and Bill King led the group out and we followed the route to a T, with not one single wrong turn (could be a first…).
Afterward we crammed into and outside of Seester’s for dozens of Dos XX, generously purchased by Brad Babcock. Brad works with surety bonds and has a ton of customers in the construction trades. He appears to be extremely well-connected too, so I’m anxious to talk to him more on the next ride.
We had quite a few new riders to the group as well, (Brad Kussow shot me a quick note to say he had a great time on his first networking ride) which is always great to see. This is first and foremost a networking opportunity for like-minded business-people. I am currently working on a stand-alone website for the group which will list ride info, as well as info companies and individuals that participate. I am hoping to have the website be a great “go-to” for connecting people outside of the 3 hours we spend together once a month. Please feel free to email any suggestions to me of content you’d like to see on the site.
Next ride is Wednesday, August 10th. Mark your calendars now!
