We need riders - Saturday May 8th

Hey ya'll,

My local (Atlanta area) riding club, The Georgia Rollers, committed a while back to get 20 riders for the Ride to Live - ADA Diabetes ride. Right now, we're at 14 bikes and we're about 1 month out from the ride. We need riders or at least people willing to sign up to ride.

If you're in the Atlanta area and could join our team - we'd sure love to have you join us. If you're not in the area, but would be willing to support the ride, go ahead and sign up as a rider I'll be more than willing to pick up your shirts, pins, patches and mail them to ya at my expense. I'll even toss in a "Lung Cancer Sucks" patch and pin from the lung cancer ride I put on a few years back.

I don't really think I need to hard sell anyone on the ADA and the good work they do for diabetes. It's a good cause and they go to a lot of effort ever year to put on this ride so we've been trying to help them. If you could see your way clear to help us help them, I'd sure appreciate it. The ride is May 8th.

You can help in a couple ways...either join our team as a rider or you can sponsor me (Jeremy Whitehead) as a rider. Either way..we appreciate anything you can do.

Anyway, here's the link.

Many, Many thanks guys!

Im gonna try to be there, but I can't commit yet. I don't know for sure. As soon as I do, you'll be the first to know!

BTW, good group of folks! I think I might just hang around. I enjoyedthe meeting yesterday. Thanks (1 more time) for the invite.

Hey man...in your position...I definately understand. Trying to make the ends meet, if you get the opportunity to work, you'd better take it. Being between jobs sucks. I'll keep my eyes open for you in the way of jobs. Networking really helps. It was Gumby, 4 years who passed along some info he heard about that helped me get my current job, so I understand the value of networking.

Thanks for coming out to our meeting yesterday, we enjoyed meeting you and getting to know you a bit. You're welcome to come ride with us anytime.

Yeah...there's actually a couple ways of doing it. I realize that guys from outside the Atlanta area won't be coming to this one, but if you'd care to join our team as a (ghost) rider, I'll be more than happy to pick up your T-shirts, patches and pins at the ride and mail them to you at my own expense.

OR

If you'd rather, you just sponsor me as a rider, just click on the link in my original post and you can send however much you like direct to the ADA.

This one is a great cause and our club decided to try and help them out this year. We've done this ride before, but I think we're maybe pushing a little harder this year than in the past because with the economy being down, their numbers are down and not as much is coming in.

Anyway...thanks for anything ya'll can do to help us with this.
