1) To familiarize new riders with the Loop which includes riding thru twisties.
2) To familiarize new riders with group riding.
3) To meet other riders and have some fun.

Who should join:
1) If you have about 3000 or so miles of riding experience (exceptions can be made).
2) If you have very little or no group riding experience.
3) If you have very little or no twisties riding experience.
If you are looking to connect with riders for future rides.

Newbie groups of 5 riders per group Including lead and sweep are what we are hoping for. This number of riders depends upon how many lead and sweep volunteers we get. If the newer riders learn from the more experienced people, perhaps some of the accidents we commonly see in summer will decrease this riding season.

This is a great way to get our riding community together and meet and help out the newbies and others. You don't have to be a newb to attend but you will have to abide by the rules.

All riders will be listed upon sign up. The groupings will be posted from time to time, but are subject to change.
Friends are encouraged to ride in different groups so that you meet new riders to hopefully enjoy the mountains with in the future. If two people need to be in the same group, it can be arranged for a fee..

Please only post if you are definitely attending.

In past year's we have always had a large turn out so Sign up soon!, to be sure of a spot.

Please notify me asap if you need to cancel so that others may fill your spot on the ride.

If you wish to Volunteer post up in the Volunteer thread, not here, so I can keep from being too confused..(( not up yet but soon over on South bay ))

Picture is from last newbie ride:

Keep an eye on this thread on BARF for future info and updates.
