Started as groups of friends that went out and rode the forest and backroads up to Carlos every so often.

We began to form larger groups and formed the longest standing, organized ride w gear requirement due to the roads we ride. All skill levels are welcome to extreme noob to track hoes coming back to the street. We accept everyone, wait for everyone and follow full Road King rules on the ride. Our largest rides were around 90 people(2 different times.)

The reason the rides work, we have dedicated, skilled riders that share responsibility in the different speed groups and an awesome sweeper/help/medical/patch group to answer almost any problem. Our success is the result of the individuals, a direct reflection on the MH community.

We sat throught he ridicule of 'racing' or riding too fast. Track records show us almost one wreck per ride, but all people wreck it was their fault for riding above their limits etc.

FG' the track this last year and have done amazing!

So, to answer the question.... We are a regular group of MH and other community riders that get together and offer a ride for all skill levels, all speeds. No trash talking, no inflated egos... we are all there to help eachother out and enjoy the ride.

We always do pictures while riding... here is some video from this year...

Keep an eye out in the events section...

"Forest Gnomes" in the name is an all out organized ride, the usual 'forest rides' are most likely FG's trying to organize a smaller group.

Nick lets meet on the other side of the freeway from the Exxon at Tuscan Sun Coffee House so we'll be leaving in the right direction on I-45.
