I threatened some months ago to organize a Tweed ride and it is indeed moving forward as a "soft" fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity Flagstaff, whose Board I am a member. Our first planning meeting is schedule for Monday, March 8 at 5:30 p.m. at The Green Room. There, I've written it so I must follow through. Isn't putting it in writing half the battle?
As I await the meeting, I'll be reviewing other blogs researching Tweed rides. I am particularly interested in first-time events and any Tweed rides tied to fundraising. I've never organized a fundraiser before so I need ideas and inspiration. Asking people for money during economically challenging times isn't easy so first I want to invite people to have fun.
My husband worries that my Tweed ride "audience" might be very particular, already bike commuting enthusiasts like me but I wonder if other Tweed rider organizers or participants have found that to be the case?
So, three short paragraphs begging my readers to PLEASE SEND ME YOUR COLLECTIVE WISDOM to make the first Flagstaff Tweed ride and Habitat fundraiser a pedaling success. The future of bike commuting in Flagstaff, Arizona could depend on it. Speedy progress toward the next Habitat home could, as well.
