I'll ride the noob ride, I've only done one other group ride.
I'm on a 250 so on the more experienced rides, I get left behind.

You might get temporarily left behind if we get separated at a stop light, but we'll stop and wait for everyone to catch up if that happens. The group will stay together.

I know we're five pages deep here, so I hope all you folks see this.

1. We will be on our bikes and rolling out at 8:30, so don't be late.

2. Fill up before the ride. There are two gas stations a stone's throw from Panera. For those coming up/down 288, the Shell station will be easiest to get to. For those traveling west on 518/Broadway, the Raceway will be your best bet. If you go to the Raceway, cut through the shopping center parking lot when you're done and circle around to Panera.

3. Check your tire pressure before the ride, especially if you're going to be 2-up.

I was scared of corners too... Then I finally got gear! I slowed down a lil before I got to the corner leaned an gave it a constant steady throttle all the way through it. The machines we ride are designed for corners!

Loosen the nut, twist until comfy, re-tighten said nut. Also, make sure to check lock to lock clearance. Sometimes adjusting brake and clutch levers can cause clearance issues.
