Well...not much to offer here. I know our club struggles also. Here is a sample of a recent email request:
"I am now requesting for STBC fall ride leaders to take a moment and pick a date in the months of September, October and November to lead your favorite ride. Please send me all of your info and I will get it scheduled as an official Southern Tier Bicycle Club ride and be able to get it in the fall newsletter and on our website calendar. With limited time available to get organized with fall rides, please act, as soon as possible and you will get first choice of available dates.
Now that you’re interested in leading a ride, Or have any other questions or concerns,
As far as favorite club rides which draw many riders? I think a lot of that is simply a matter of the stars aligning such that there aren't too many competing activities going on (holidays, local festivities, etc.), the weather is good, etc.
One feature I enjoy about our ride schedule is the "grading" system for how fast to expect the ride to be or how hilly. Here's a link to out latest newsletter so you can see how we do that: www.southerntierbicycleclub.org/images/STB
I think we've mustered a pretty nice schedule of rides!
