Kind of an accordion effect, that really messes with noobies like me.

That being said, I'm in!

1. NewRider (leading)
2. Rykoson (sweeping)
3. Jimrad (Experienced Helper) [maybe]
4. Chris_5.0 (Noob) [maybe]
5. af05941 (Noob)
6. Morphish (Noob)
7. Joeybaila (Experienced Helper)
8. Smart Shark (Noob)


If I messed up what role you're taking, or if you're a maybe or not... Fix your own !

I agree, since this doesn't allow anyone to fall far behind and out of sight when it gets twisty. I was the last rider on my first group ride, and it didn't end so well.


Will we be getting back at 3:00pm or earlier? Just wondering, since there's something else on my plate at the moment.

Don't worry, this is not one of those rides. Ivan is a safe leader, and Rykoson will not leave anyone behind as a sweeper. The pace will be comfortable so that you're able to LEARN stuff on this day.

Ivan is designing the ride after this thread:
http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=213475



I've spent over $730 in the last 10 days to get my bike going, I can't wait to be out there helping you guys out again. There will be more of these between the "Safe Leaders" in the coming weeks, but get as many of these as you can in.

Sweet. Thanks for the info, Senator. Didn't know there was any other information aside from "The Pace" article.
