This was a great way to get even the shyest and timid of people, young and old, dancing, and from then on the spirit of the dance/party was set, and one would end up dancing nearly every dance for the rest of the evening. Sometimes it would take a bit of persuasion to draw a shy one out onto the floor, but eventually they would be up, out of their seat, and thoroughly enjoying themselves.
Getting people to get out and about on bikes could be just like that. If once per month we all made it an ambition to get just one person out for a bike ride, and then once that person discovered the "joy of the dance", if they too encouraged another out onto the floor, it wouldn't take long to fill the roads, parks and byways with people up and out of their cars and thoroughly enjoying themselves.
This month I am going to try to persuade my Niece (55) out on a bike ride with me. Who would you like to try to get to ride with you?
