Katy Noob ride

So I've been informed the wife has to work that weekend... and with the recent issues with the complete noobs on group rides and twisties I figured I would see if anyone wants to get together for a toddler twisty ride...

Something basic, easy beyond relaxed pace, and hopefully a couple seasoned riders will offer to pitch in and help herd the noobs.

I am thinking start over somewhere between Brookshire and Katy, and end up at the County Line BBQ on 290 for lunch.

Plan is to have a couple peeps to critique your style, and help you get more comfortable on the bike and turns, without the normal "holy " pressure of a larger group ride.

This is for you guys that have been asking.. so post up ifn your are interested in riding or helping.

Not a track day, not trying to promote racing on the street, just trying to help a brudder out..

Basic rules are gear STRONGLY encouraged.. helmet, jacket, gloves required... no exceptions, and I WILL send you home without it.

If no one is interested I'll just go find some roads for myself to play on




Added... this is a good time to bring out the GF/wife so she can get in some practice.

And if you don't want to go the speed limit and slower, this ain't the place for you.

thanks

Looks like about 80 miles from start to lunch, and we can decide from there if we want more or not.

Yes and yes... well not IN Katy

Meet time TBD, probably around 9 - 9:30. That will leave plenty of time to take the relaxed pace and even practice/play some in the corners, and still beat the lunch rush for BBQ.

Still need a couple other helpers to help with pointers....

I might be able to make it. I've been riding sweeper for a while now and my skills have taken a beating after seeing all the others do. I'm starting to do the same...
If there is a cap in the amount of people you're taking then I will bow out gracefully and let someone who really needs the advice take the spot.

If I don't get enough volunteers to assist then I'll have to cap it, but for now we'll see.

I am going to try and keep it under 15-20 total, maybe less, that way we can all have some quality time with our poser coach!


Remember peeps, there will be no extra-legal speeds on this ride, and will be pokey riding most of the time.....
