Talking Newbie ride

I'm a newbie so I wanna put together a newbie ride, I've only been riding for about 6 months. I wanna get some newbies together to ride around the woodlands... I wanna try for the 27th of December, it's a Saturday. No set time yet just seeing if there is any takers.

Maybe meet in the woodlands, but ride out to the forest or some nice back roads.

riding in the woodlands should only be done long enough to head north to the forest and some nice roads

Rule #1 always factor in weather when planning a group ride.

Especially if you're all new.

I could lead you guys through the forest if need be. Just will slow down the normal pace.

If you have a Scala that would be golden. Can tell me if I'm going too fast or whatnot.

I honestly don't mind who goes, I was saying newbies so we could keep a slower pace. I know if I put together a meet and it was all 5+ years riders then I would probably be left behind.

Also I think a couple of experienced riders would be good, maybe be able to give some pointers.

I have communication in my helmet! Never used it tho.

I just finished riding for about 3 hours. These forests that everyone is talking about, do they have a lot of twisties? I haven't been able to find a good spot to practice my leaning besides the track.
