  1. Hello

    My name is Desi. I am a cyclist in Northern Virginia. I belong to several bike clubs, including the WABITS Tandem Club.

    I realize that you are the contact for a Cycling Club. I am hoping that you will help me get the word out about “The Ride Connection” website. It just went live in November 2011.

    The Ride Connection is located at

    So what does The Ride Connection offer you as a cyclist? Our mission is to match cyclists with other cyclists and riding opportunities. Although cycling is a great solitary sport we have a fundamental belief that cycling is more fun when enjoyed with others. We provide powerful search tools to connect you with other cyclists with similar goals and abilities.

    Here are some of the website’s cool features:
    Automatic ride notifications by email based on your profile and preferences.
    Sophisticated search for members, rides, ride groups and routes.
    Google maps integration including feet of climbing.
    Printable cue sheets in PDF, Word and Excel.
    Anonymous email through the site until you get to know your future riding buddy.
    Create favorite ride and favorite route lists. Be notified if your favorite rides change.
    The ability to link your ride and route. Rides and routes can function separately as well.
    Create and join ride groups. Just add a ride group to your favorites list. It’s that simple.
    Ride RSVP. Let the ride leader know if you will ride with them.
    SSL encryption. Your connection is as secure as online banking.
    These are just a few of The Ride Connection’s many highlights. There will be many more features in the coming months and years.

    What The Ride Connection is: The Ride Connection is about connecting cyclists with cycling resources. In particular other cyclists, rides and ride groups. Later versions of The Ride Connection will include a section for Bike Clubs, Bike Shops and Events. These sections are under development.

    What The Ride Connection is not: Another “mapping” site like or Yes, there is mapping on The Ride Connection but mapping is only a piece of the pie.

    Please check out the site and search for member “Milano”. View profile by selecting the Detail link. This member gets the website’s mission.

    I encourage you to forward this email to all your cycling friends.

    The website will not be useful unless people use it.

    I hope the website enhances your cycling experience.

    Have fun and ride safe.


    FYI: The website is totally FREE!
