10.04.09 Forest Gnome Ride

Last one till Mudbug's Noob ride later in the month.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When: Sunday, the 4th. Mandatory new rider meeting at 930am KSU 10am

Where: PP69(shell/mcD's at 242/i45)

untitledmapcopy

What: Ride through the backroads, up the National Forest and onward to Yankees via 3090

Gear Req': Helmet, Jacket, Gloves. Strongly recommend boots, knee guards and protective riding pants or more.

PreReq's: None. We have track riders to those w only a couple days of experience. The ride adjusts to the riders involved. Just be honest w your abilities and ride at a recommended 70% your ability or below. Come to the meet w a full tank, good tires and bike condition.

Da fk is a Forest Gnome Ride?: If you havent heard of our group crawl back into the hole you came out. LOL JK!

There are many roads up on the Northside that have been outridden but still offer a great opportunity for newer riders or those wishing to cruise to improve their skills. What we do is offer an MSF/Roadking designed ride w a dedicated Leader/Sweeper leading a manageable group through these roads.

We are one of the most organized, long lasting and dedicated ride groups consistantly concerned about the well being of our riders. There seem to always be mishaps or riders riding over their head, especially on 3090. We have mandatory meetings to warn riders and recommend riding in the Group C on your first ride through 3090 regardless of your skill level.

Above all, we never leave anyone behind and ask all the riders have the same respect for eachother on these rides.

The ride does officially end at Yankees, however I will be the last one leaving and will stay no matter how long necessary to make sure everyone has a way back. This way you and your friends can ride at your own pace on return or go back a variety of different ways.

If weather doesn't allow the ride, we can visit Dennys one block south of 242

Some of the Forest Rides we documented(when the busa had the cameras on it.)

First and most amazing was Cdill's video for CoachDave's Memorial ride:
