Ok, not had too much success so far in getting the South and West Midlands Area off the ground (first FoD ride was snowed off but there was not a lot of interest, first road ride there were two of us, no one is up for FoD tomorrow but the road ride next weekend has half a dozen so far and hope springs eternal) but we may well not be offering people what they want..

So it's poll time to see if there is something we're missing..

I'll do either as long as the off road is reasonably relaxed and not incredibly difficult.

FOD is great for me as it's on my doorstep but it does depend on the week as to whether I'm around on a Saturday or Sunday.

Anyone work flexi and fancy a Friday ride?

I run a small informal group that cycles around Ross and I've tried asking for free dates, setting dates months ahead so that people can diary them, sending lists of when I plan to go out and suggested routes - and last time just circulated people with "I'm going out this Saturday - fancy coming?"

Net result - somewhere between three and five people each time! Strangely each time I say I won't orgainise any more there's a clamour!
