Ridehard, Rideeasy, Rules and Mantra

The rules and the mantra have been developed by Ridehard's friends.

 

Ridehard:

What is Ridehard?

This name first came up in July 2002. At that time I can't really remember why. I only rode a few centuries at this time. After getting in serious long distance riding starting with the 500 Miles in the four days thanksgiving weekend in 2002, I kind of could see where the name came from and I accepted it.

Especially since this seemed to be so much easier for the English speaking and writing population, than using Reinhard. So far I have not seen any misspells with the name of Ridehard, while Reinhard has been:

Rheinhard
Rienhard
Rhinehard
Rinehard

Even my friends used different forms of Reinhard. So it seemed so much easier to stay with Ridehard.

At the Safari 2003 Fairlie applied the official Florida Freewheeler Ridehard name tag on to my road bike. I still carry a "Ridehard" tag today.

Rideeasy:

I use the Mountainbike for shorter rides e.g. Social rides. So at a T-ride on 23 May 04, Lyndy came with the idea of calling me Rideeasy. She immediately sent a name tag also, which now can be seen on my Mountainbike.

I also decided to use this name for my email address related to these webpages.

 

 

 

The following rules and mantra have been developed by Ridehard's friends.

 

Rules:

  1. If their are two options, always take the longer one
  2. If you liked the ride, do it again
