A few weeks ago, while helping Knightrider come to grips with learning how to ride, I came up with the idea of getting the guys from HQ to make a slight detour and prove an escort into Friday night coffee. With the 6 or so other riders leading and surrounding her, Robyn was able to make the ride into coffee well before she probably would have been willing to on her own. She was well protected from the traffic by the guys around her and just had to follow the guys in front to find her way in. Yet she still got to feel the achievement of being able to line her bike up beside everyone else and show off her pride and joy. I mentioned the same idea to R1_Lover who liked the idea as well and once her bike arrives she said she'd take me up on the offer. Since we have a large number of riders heading into coffee of a Friday we should be able to cover pretty much every corner of the city so we can offer an escort for the newer riders where-ever they may be. As long as people as also willing to escort them back home I think it would be a very valuable thing for the learners. So this is a two prong query. 1. Who of the experienced riders would be willing to go on escort duty if a learn out their side of the city wanted to be escorted in? 2. Who amongst the learners would be interested in being escorted into coffee during the very early stages of getting onto a bike?
