Re: [RC] Endurance rides and rising costs - Gary Fend

I look at it this way.  The price of diesel has gone up $1.25 since last year.  A friend and I went to a ride up by Redding last weekend.  The total round trip distance was 440 miles and we used about 30 gallons of fuel.  That means we spent about $40 more this year than last or about $20 each.  That's the price of a large combination pizza and less than dinner and drinks at a restaurant.  I will continue to go to rides and cut back on dinning out.

There's an interesting discussion on the AERC ride managers list -
Patti Stedman asked if we (ride managers) anticipated a change in
attendance due to the rising fuel costs.

What do all you riders think? Will you be going to fewer rides? more
multidays? car pooling?
