D list rider

Posted: April 17, 2017 in Uncategorized

Recent events have caused me to conclude that I am a D-List (bicycle) rider. I became aware that there have been at least two events attended or to be attended by other cyclists, friends of mine, to which I received no invitation. To clarify, I am not talking about a phone call, e-mail or text invite to a daytime or evening ride. I’m talking about a group trip.

This causes me to be curious as to why. I have hypothesized answers to the two instances but they are just that. I could dedicate several paragraphs to guesses but one point is fact. Neither of the two originators of these plans/rides contacted me to see if I had an interest in participating. Compounding this, in my opinion, is the fact that I didn’t receive a shout out or a “hey did you know” from any of the riders (friends) that did or will participate.

I have tried my best to make this a “water under the bridge” thing but it continues to nag at me. Other than this writing I do not plan to bring this up to any of those who were passively involved. I did contact one of the planners who provided an explanation but did not directly address my primary question, why wasn’t I contacted? I will acknowledge that I am not the center of the universe to be consulted on all matters cycling but WTF?
