  • Tony's Cruise: finishing the loop that Anthony didn't.  All of his (and ours) favorite roads.  It'll be a long day of riding, stretching from the Pacific Coast inland back-roads. 

    This ride is to remember Tony and to send healing vibes to Ed and Phil.

    Words of Wisdom:
    ~ Please review Liability Release statement at THIS LINK

    ~ Proper gear, a working machine and gas in the tank is highly recommended.
    ~ Ride within your comfort zone and leave room for bad karma.
    ~ Lead may pass slower traffic when it's safe. You don't have to. Remember, someone will wait for you at turns, so just relax and have fun.
    ~ Lead maintains the Pace according to road conditions with safety of all riders in mind. Be mindful of others in the group. Let faster riders get ahead of you by moving to the right and signaling them to pass you. And if you want to pass the rider(s) who are in front of you, make sure to do so safely and without startling them.

    ~ If you know the area and would like to sweep for the group (AM shift, PM shift or both), please let us know.
    ~ Good stuff to read before going on group rides (CLICK).
    ~ Keep an eye for the rider(s) behind you so they won't take a wrong turn. If they get lost, you'll buy their lunch
