A few weeks ago, plans were made for an Oct. 4th 120 km ride from Gretna, Manitoba down to North Dakota over a scenic route and back to Gretna. Paul Krahn and Merle Hiebert are the organizers. The following is an e-mail I sent giving cyclists opportunity to join this ride. If interested just e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hi fellow (and girls) MIT’ers,
Over breakfast on our ride this morning, we discussed plans for the can-am ride. So far, weather permitting, the following have indicated an interest in going: Val( in an e-mail), Jac, Neil, Glen, Hans, Merle and Jim. We thought car pooling was the best idea with the following offering rides for cyclists and bikes: Jim (room for 3 passengers), Glen( room for 4 passengers) and Neil (room for 2 passengers). Obviously, we may not need to take all 3 vehicles. The plan is also, that we would return home, very shortly after the ride, in case people have other commitments. We would leave approx. 8:00 A.M. sat. and probably be home by 5:00 P.M.
The purpose of this e-mail is first to see if there are any other riders interested in participating (just reply to this e-mail) and second to let me know if you want a ride. By Thursday, I think we’ll know enough about the weather to confirm our plans, and be able to finalize who goes in what car. I am also planning to buy $200 US from the bank on Friday, so you can buy your US $ from me if you want.(same exchange rate as bank). Also remember to bring your passports or picture ID with birth certificate.
Merle, I checked on the route description and it looks like we meet at HWY #30 adjacent to Gretna at 10:00 A.M.. Could you get back to me on this.
Looking forward to a great ride,
