I need to vent a little:
I started riding only a few years ago. In the beginning I rode alone and I struggled. So I made the decision to ride the same route every Saturday morning until I got comfortable and I posted the information on Facebook in case anyone might wait to join me.
The first Saturday a couple of people joined me and it was fun. By the 4th or 5th week I would have anywhere between 12 and 25 bikes show up. It was awesome.
In the years since then it’s become normal for me to post rides most weekends. Unless I have a specific request from someone I choose what I’d like to do and post accordingly. I have no problem going alone if there’s no interest. Usually I have at least 2 or 3 show up.
I love doing it don’t get me wrong but I am human and I need to get these complaints off my chest:
People that: never plan a ride but want to tell me how to plan mine.
Show up and then complain the ride is too ________(fast, slow, long,short,etc)
Ask questions that are answered(sometimes more than once)in the event posting.
Want to make changes less than 72 hours before the ride is scheduled to start.
Show up late.
Confirm as coming but never show.
Thanks for giving me an outlet for my frustration. I feel better already.
