Hey all, I'm a single chick in my 30s who is keen to meet some other singles and I was thinking about the possibility of an Adelaide Cyclists speed dating/cycling event. What do you say? Or am I just crazy for even thinking about it.
went to the link and 5 members whose names and privacy protected. so perhaps more interest than when someone tried to start this before. i suggested ideas like meet for picnic in the park and cheap meals like fasta pasta.
looks like I need an invite to join this group.
Sorry Katie...my wife doesnt want to get rid of old broken things :)
Would some sort of singles social ride be a compromise.
As for non singles attending perhaps they could wear a wedding ring or some electrical tape on the visor of their helmet or some other prearranged but reasonably subtle sign.
Could electrical tape on the visor be a new sub culture.
Equally by just signalling you intentions ( have I spent too much time studying business) to a community of 1900 members and however many lurkers.
This may just be enough to fix the issue.
A person once said to me it is a lot better to be unhappily single than unhappily married.
Many single people I know seem happily single.
I think it's more about meeting people who have more disposable time, not just for cycling but for spontaneous events. I love my friends who have girlfriends, boyfriends, wives, husbands and children, but when you want to do something at the drop of a hat, it can be hard to find someone to do something with. Thanks for your comments Don, I think that just posting something here will be enough to start a singles/speed-dating social riding group.
I'd rather be happily single than happily married *wink* *wink*
Is that from experience as I am happily married and its great! *Nudge* *Nudge*
Say no more
Maybe the married people could glue those plastic bride and groom figures to their helmet :)
Catering for the event could be wedding cake :)
Any licensed marriage celebrants coming along :)
Do they keep off magpies ?
Nothing other than not wearing a helmet keeps off magpies http://youtu.be/9wHreVKgOT4
Or we could wear a flower behind our right ear!
How to announce ur single??? From what i've heard, placing a hand of banana's in the baby seat of the trolley in Woolies on a Wed night is supposed to be the "signal".
Maybe single cyclists could hang a hand of banana's from the handlebars???
