When meeting up with another biker that you do not know for a ride it is best to bring your own bike.
If you do not have one, ask a friend to borrow one, rent one or arrange a group ride so you are not put in a position of being under someone else’s control. This will give you the advantage of deciding to end the date if things are not going the way you hoped they would.
It also means your date will not have to drop you off at home.
Meet in a public place and after the ride plan to sit at a restaurant or other public place for a while so your date cannot follow you home.
If you are riding as a group, decide upon a destination that is not near your home to end the ride and go your separate ways.
Make sure it is a well populated, well lit location. Riding during daylight hours is also a good idea because it allows a clearer view of what is happening around you and allows others to see you easier.
You could also arrange to meet at a pre-arranged biker function that will have a ride or at least allow you to be in a group situation.
