Cali are you going 2up? I have family in town and 2 of my cousins may want to do this. (with their parents permission) I could take 1 of them but Victoria won't be comfortable riding 2 up so I would need to find someone to take the other cousin. (both girls) Would need to find gear for both as well.

I will not even ask the girls about it until i've talked to their parents. I just talked to vic and she is down with the ride so I'll be talking with them tomorrow. I have a jacket and gloves for 1 and will just need a helmet for both and jacket/gloves for the other.

I have a few jackets that should fit ok.

Helmets are as mentioned unfortunately. the small I do have I wouldnt let someone I care about ride with; so Im not even considering it.

As for gloves, I know where one extra set is; any set will do, even gardening gloves I'll look for the other set.


edit; I remember someone borrowed the third set and never returned them from a forest ride; no clue where they are now.

the groups will be broken up depending on size and riding experience. As you can see, we already have plenty of volunteers willing to help


and I already have a few other FG's on the Southside that texted in saying they'd help if needed
