Jones Creek Family/Beginner Ride

Lets get out and practice at Jones Creek! This is a ride for newbies or anyone else who doesn't mind going slow, gravel roads, easy trails, and/or skills practice. I plan to work with Kris, Alissa, and anyone else wanting to work on some focused skills drills. We'll practice in the kids play loops, do some gravel road panic stops and starts, and look for an area for some figure 8 practice. We'll see how folks feel about riding some or all of A-Loop after that.

Meeting at 11am at the Jones Creek staging area. I'll be in a dark grey Nissan Frontier. My number is[masked]-8696.

    That's my birthday weekend. Larry and I are going to get away from it ALL. At this very moment I'm trying to coordinate three dinners with three different people within two days, and go on two trips with two people before I have to be back Wednesday night for my open mic/jam gig. Fall and winter and heading back to work September 3 may be the only time that lets me relax.

    Since when does it only let you rsvp up to a +2? Whatever, I'm a +5 for tomorrow.

      Unfortunately, the +2 limit is a meetup.com default setting you can't globally override. It's a "per event" setting. I have set the limit to 10 and edited your RSVP to +5.

    Hey Nathan, was wondering if you were able to get your bikes running. Kids and I might be able to make this ride.
