    Surprised no MTB clubs.

    I have been riding broward/dade area trails for a while. I m 32 so by now most of my friends are lazy. I can't drag anyone to do anything physical. So i typically ride solo. I have always wondered why someone hasn't started a mtb club the way motorcycle clubs have gotten together. I used to ride a motorcycle and it was a good opportunity to meet other riders. It would be nice if someone with initiative and some knowledge on organizing something like that would start a bike club. Typically there are events, group rides, charity events raising money for good causes. Ie. bike trails or what ever. I think this would be a cool way to get together with other riders. Anyone have any thoughts on the subject.

    Is there a SORBA group around you? Google it. I'm in Jacksonville. I ride all over. I'm 32 also and I rode solo because my friends are to lazy. It must be the new trend.

    I am new to the area (South Florida, in Parkland) and am happy to meet up with anybody to ride. Don't mind driving to the trail -- but with three kids and a busy job, I am a little time limited to early morning, night rides, and Saturdays.

    I am a couple of weeks out with a repair to my bike I am finally taking to a shop to fix (indexing problem I can't solve... five miles into my ride my read derailleur is out of index).

    Ran in to some cool guys on the trails at Amelia Friday and they told me they have a club called Bobbers or Bobers, I'm not sure. They told me to google them but can't seem to find them on there. They told me they have a nice size group of riders. If anyone knows who these guys are and they have a site please feel free to post it. I've been out for 2 years almost and lost touch with the guys I used to ride with.
