I am out in Leesburg, Va.

Shoot me a PM if you're ever looking to ride! I will have a beer every now and then but won't touch it when I am riding.

There is a meeting near me that meets in the park. We all stand in a large circle at least six feet apart, three times a week. It's the only noontime meeting still happening in the area. I'm about to head out to it now.

We have been meeting around here outside at a church, and at a member's house in his backyard. He has two acres.

Really intense how I need these meetings!

Also zoom is better than nothing

7 years down still who knows how many left in front of me. when my journey started i hadn't realized how many people i would meet on my journey not just independents but clubbies as well that are on the same road that i am. i hope that yall are doing good and maybe one day we will run into each other. until then keep up the great work.

Where in Ohio are you? I'm in Cheviot (just outside Cincinnati). There are quite a few other forum members in this state.

I'm just north in Lebanon area. Just moved here from out west. I like it besides all the rain as of late.

Get used to the rain; it does that a lot here, compared with the western states. Once this Lockdown is over, I'm going to try to get another Meet & Eat organized. Then, you can join a bunch of us for a (Hopefully) good meal and some good conversation.

Yeah I'm down. Hopefully I have my sporty done by then. Lebanon just closed down one of the main roads for people to eat on the street from the local restaurants. Where there is a will there is a way.
