As someone who has fallen for a fellow cyclist, I have to admit there are a number of benefits. No fights about where we’re going to fit another bike in our small apartment; total agreement that weekends and vacations should be spent trying out new places to ride; and, most importantly, someone who likes how I look in spandex. So I’m a huge fan of the work that dedicated Cascade volunteers Terri Iverson and Mary Remoaldo are doing to connect single cyclists looking for that special riding buddy.
Last week was the first Cascade Single Cyclists (CSC) Happy Hour of the year, and it was a blast. 100+ attractive (great calves!), interesting (they love to ride!), and all around awesome (they came out for this sweet event!) attendees filled up the upstairs room at the Balmar in Ballard. There were great prize giveaways, bike themed drink specials, and an automatic icebreaker – “Are you thinking about riding STP? I just started training…”
Were you there? Did you meet someone special? Let us know!
And if you missed it, don’t worry! The CSC matchmakers are already planning their next event for April, location and date TBD. You can also join them on Cascade Single Cyclists group rides – keep an eye on the Cascade Daily Rides calendar for dates to be announced!
