One of the New England Rider forums poster asked the question, "What constitutes a ride ? Does riding to Dunkin Donuts 6 miles away really a ride ? "
I don't know the answer to the question, however I did make a reference to going out simply to grab a TAG, which is not a whole lot different than riding to DD. For most, riding to DD makes more sense than going to get a sign with a 16 on it. For me the Sweet 16 is much better than an over rated DD coffee.
