<:: North Bay Ride ::><:: Saturday 5/3 ::>

After a Joyous ride last Saturday in the Southbay I wanted to get back on track with my Ride Calender and schedule up a North Bay Ride this weekend

It's been sometime since I've ventured North and I've only been on the roads that the Marin County folks have been nice enough to lead us on in the past. So if it's left up to me that's where we'd ride again... Mt Tam~Pt. Reyes~Tamales~So On and So Forth... A more organized route plan to follow. But I'm open for suggestions.

The Meet-Ups:
Right now I'd say Tam Junction Starbucks at 90 Kickstands up at 9:30am
SF/East/Sout Bay Pre-Meet at Chestnut St. Starbucks at 80 Kickstands up at 8:30am
East Bay Pre-Pre-Meet at Peidmont St., The Posh Bagel in Oakland at 70 Kickstands up at 7:30am
Obviously you don't have to meet at any of the pre-meet spots, and can go straight to Tam Junction if you'd like. But please post up for those that plan to "Pre-Meet" so we can decide to cancel the gathering

Ride Rules:
Also please do a "once over" on your bikes before coming. Do your tires even have wear bars? Is your chain dry and kinked up? Is your front rotor pitted and destroyed from lack of brake pads? Are you brakes soft and mushy? Do your tires even have air in them? These things and more can make a great day a very bad one for you and everyone else. So to keep from having to ask you to join us another time please check this stuff out on your own.

I'm also going to be setting a 5 person a group maximum. Too many people becomes too big of a concern for monitoring group progress and getting around obstacles (ie -minivans, etc...). So those somewhat experienced on these roads it would be encouraged to sweep or lead.

Some Pre-Ride Reading:
The Pace 1
The Pace 2

So who wants to put the rubber to the pavement?

The Roster:
CharliesAngel
Jaman
*TCK!*
Vindingo (I'm pre-signing you up so you can't back out now)

Legend:

* indicates pre-meet at Chestnut St. Starbucks in San Francisco


* indicates pre-meet at Peidmont St., The Posh Bagel in Oakland


indicates Wussed Out And Isn't Riding With Us.

M'boy and me is heading to see my future in-laws in Reno this weekend. No riding for us. It's still too "iffy" to risk riding over the passes until later on in the year. Be safe you guys. If someone decides to do some low-earth orbiting while I'm away, there will be hell to pay.

My computer beeped letting me know a new reply had been made, then a little windows popped up saying "CADUCMAN HAS REPLIED TO..." I thought, "Finally he's going to make it on one of the weekend rides..."

haha tricked me! Enjoy the family trip I bet it's going to be fun.

Do you still ride during the week much? No job has conveniently left me with a lot of free time!

I still do most of my riding during the week so when I get back we can cause some trouble. Although after 22 days on my 1098, I may need a day to rest! P.S. TCK, I will make it to a weekend group ride one of these days!
