The men and women who built them, by and large, also rode them, as their primary means of transportation.
Most modern bicycles are designed with the primary intent to catch your eye on the sales floor, and persuade you to buy.
If we don't think a dater is someone that fellow daters would get on with - we'll respectfully decline service and reserve the right to do so. We think 'Meet-Up' is a lovely free service that gives those of similar interests the opportunity to connect. Also, it is a good idea to keep checking back on our website as sometimes reservations become available at the last minute. Please try to avoid doing anything unsafe in your attempt to arrive to the event on time - we do like to wait for all participants to arrive.
We do question businesses that promote their events through "Meet-Up" groups - only to redirect you to their own website. This may cause an event to start late but we feel a perfect opportunity to chat up the hosts, have a lovely refreshment and settle in. You checked each other on your scorecards and your email address will be exchanged with this person 24 hours after the event.
Much like a private club, not every dater is for us.
Those that tend to see the good in everything and everyone - are just what we and our daters are looking for. You can email [email protected] information as to the process of being added to the wait list. Published start times can be found in the event description.
Note that the serial number information below is fragmentary and incomplete, and many bikes have proven to be much newer than the serial numbers would suggest.
Online registration closes 5 hours prior to event start time.
Contemporary bicycles have many parts made of aluminum (or "aluminium," if you prefer) for lightness, strength and corrosion resistance.
Contemporary bicycles that have steel rims, or cranks, or handlebars, or brakes do so as a way of cutting corners and saving a little bit of money, for a low-end bicycle.
If you need to cancel you may be eligible for a refund or event rain check, based on our cancellation policy, provided you contact us before the event day.
Upon successful registration we will email you a confirmation with the event details.
