<:: East Bay Ride ::><:: Saturday 4/5 ::>

East Bay Is Pig Latin For Beast For A Reason

This will be a strictly riding weekend no fancy bbq's and motogp viewing at some posh location (is my jealousy on missing the ride coming through?)

I'm thinking East Bay, cause it easy for me, and it usually keeps the number of participants down, cause no one likes to visit the BEAST.

I think I'll be riding NEWBEE's pace from BARF 90 mins or less from Livermore to San Jose... hahah J/K! I'm not insane (that is what his ride pace is though)

For those of you looking to put some miles on your bikes before the Monday track day this would be perfect. If you want to get hardcore I'm sure I could be talked into doing a good 300 miles of twisties Saturday.

I usually start my rides early before the , tourist, bicyclist, and road racers wake up. But since the sun doesn't rise until like 7:15am I'm probably going to push the start time to 9am (I'll probably be doing a Redwood pre-ride, starting in Castro Valley at like 8/8:30am if anyone is interested)

The route is up for discussion so input please. I'll probably be riding my bike into San Francisco after the ride to get new tires so if you want to we can BBQ it up at Zeitgeist

UPDATE
HERE'S THE ROUTE -->>OMG CLICK ME<<--

Sorry, big guy. I'm out this weekend in beautiful Willows the whole time. Sounds like a good route though. I like that one.

I can't make it this time, but I hope to visit the Beast again one of the days.

I need to make a trip out to Bo's BBQ one of these days too.

Hey did you make it on the Easter ride? Didn't meet up with you a 'geist saw some monsters at the Tam but didn't know who's they were.

Re: <:: East Bay Ride ::><:: Saturday 4/5 ::>

I haven't put 300 miles combined on my bike in the last 4 months. I'm probably way closer to that on my dirtbike than I am on the Duc.

That said, I won't be doing it this weekend, either..... Obligations are the mother of all bitches.

Anybody want to come ride my bike for me. I think she's getting lonely sitting there in the garage.
