We have listed all the rides on the Meetup site:  http://www.meetup.com/Bicycle-Riding-Velo-San-Antonio/

It is free to join meetup.  You should join up today, just click the link and sign up, it takes 2 minutes!  If you RSVP for a ride, the system will send you an automatic reminder.  How cool is that? And don’t forget, you can schedule your own rides!!!! If 3 or more say they want to join you, the system notifies everyone about it!

We would like to see lots of you join up through meetup so it will be easier to know who is going to which rides.  It’s a really great system, we spent many hours getting it ready for you.  I think you’re going to love it!!
