For having Cars AND Bikes, this drive/ride went very smooth. Glad everyone came out, and hope the rider that went down isnt to sore tomorrow morning.

Forest Rides FTW

Lets start planning another....

Figure out how much the gasket is going to cost you yet?

It was a great ride today. When I got home I took an awesome nap! Totally drained. Next time you plan a trip to the forest, I'm in. We could get a group of bikes to ride a section over and over next time. It would be awesome to pick up the speed each time we go through.

As long as we don't stick around for too long it shouldn't me an issue. Back and forth on a section twice is all you really need in order to get the rhythm. No need to over do it

Been my experience to never try to memorize the corners of a route. Planning on the road to be clear is not an opportunity to move out of the 50-70% riding ability to safely navigate the roads. Group leaders naturally need to know the routes.

As for running multiple sections; bikes can be heard from up to a mile away. Sounds unbelievable but its true. We've had many have to stop and could hear us coming for a good period of time before we show. Also, residence will call in to the police when groups ride through. Using the roads to 'commute' to and from vs occupy will lessen the chances of interuption.

Lastly, on certain roads if we see cops we shut it down and ride conservatively because we can guarantee ourselves a radio call was put forward. Im not a fan of supporting our tax offices over the yearly required donations.
