WTC members live in a wide swath of territory, including regions near Delaware of Maryland, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Visitors are welcome to take part in two activities before deciding whether to join. A single introductory copy of the bulletin may be obtained from us by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

There are a lot more of them. It is just a question of getting them online. If all those ride leaders who either place or have saved their rides on word or other documents would send them to me as an e-mail attachment, this can be done more easily. I also want to give credit where it is due as to who originally came up with the ride. If you have info as to that I would like to know.
