You've volunteered to lead a ride and posted it to the Pedal Patter and the website. Now there’s a new way to promote your event, the Potomac Pedalers MeetUp page. PPTC recently launched the MeetUp page to bolster membership and already has 330 subscribers looking forward to joining you on a ride. Most subscribers are experienced cyclists--approximately 50 ride at a B pace or faster--but some are new riders interested in riding at a more moderate pace and distance.
I encourage you to give the page a try. Using our standard promotional methods, the ride schedule and the Pedal Patter, a leader never knows how many riders to expect. Riders on MeetUp actually sign up. So far, enrollment has ranged from a few as four to as many as 30 for a ride.
Social media, such as MeetUp, are extremely effective at helping people connect around shared interests. Please support our MeetUp by posting your ride. To do so, join the group by clicking here
, then contact me, Denise, at firstname.lastname@example.org
(an address used exclusively for MeetUp related matters). I will make you an event organizer and will write back with instructions. Feel free to drop me a line with any questions.
Thank you helping our club thrive!
