Meeting Recap--April 28, 2018

in Meeting Recaps

Five of us got together on Saturday to discus plans for future rides and discussion of some new techniques for familiar maintenance and riding situations.

The meeting kicked-off with a selection from LHM Men's Network, that depicted some of the ways the gospel spread in the early church, even to the Samaritans, a then despised people that accepted the Pentateuch but held alien beliefs as well.

On moving to a discussion of possible routes for a May 12th ride it soon became apparent that most of those present felt there would be very few riders interested in riding on Mother's Day weekend. However, since there may be riders not at the meeting that would see the 12th okay, a ride was scheduled (called the Short Loop) that includes stops at VanZandts and TWO (aka TWoS). Addition details will be posted as the ride date nears.

Meeting Recap--March 31, 2018

The meeting opened by viewing a five minute lesson from "What They Didn't Teach You In Sunday School" that gave us interesting background knowledge about Pentecost. We'll be tapping this resource more often at future meetings.

The first order of business was setting a plan for a ride on April 14th. A possible  route to The Pocket was discussed and we settled on a route that includes a ride over the mountain on Lake Marvin Road https://www.plotaroute.com/route/586752

After The Pocket the route heads south then east to Adairsville where we'll have lunch at the Adairsville Inn. After lunch we'll continue east picking up some favorite backroads back to the starting point in Ball Ground (around 150 miles r/t)

The remainder of the meeting included discussion about riding in rain, and a look at a videoed accident that resulted from the rider being distracted.

After the meeting five of us rode up to Jasper following a round-about scenic route, for lunch at 61 Main.
