Noob rides? Those still a thing?

I used to be on this forum a few years ago when I got my first bike. I remember there were a bunch of noob rides posted around here, but I don't see them nowadays.

Does anyone still organize these? I just got back on two wheels a few months ago and I'm trying to learn how To ride better. I could definitely use the advice of more seasoned riders out there. Ironically, my first crash was on a noob ride, so I'm trying to be more careful this time around.

I used to, but too many non-noobs started showing up and acting like idiots mid-pack, so I quit. PM Morgstang.

Used to be a once, twice a year thing. Had one noob to one helper/experienced rider ratio.

if texas has dried up by then, july 24th or july 31st is good for me.

i feel no shame in saying that i prefer to ride like a noob. i have ridden like a madman and it has bit me in the . i'm lucky to still be able to shitpost and occasionally ride when the weather isnt being so biblical.

check out the 1ST ANNUAL SUMMER MOTO MEET.

Just getting on the bike and putting on miles will make you a more confident rider.

I have a couple good routes...Brenham route has 20, 30 and 40 mph corners...Waller route has 40 and 50 mph corners only...either one is good riding out in the country with no traffic...
