The following description was provided by Michael Nelson [masked]

 

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding Clinics. These seminars are FREE, and consist of a one hour lecture followed by a three hour group ride in the beautiful Santa Cruz mountains.

 

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

 

PURPOSE: Enhance your riding skills, increase your enjoyment, and learn better riding survival reflexes.

 

TYPE OF MOTORCYCLE: If it has 2 wheels and a motor, you're invited.

 

SKILL LEVEL REQUIRED: The bottom line is that if you can safely negotiate the mountainous roads off Skyline Blvd, then you do have the minimum skills for the ride.  Since these are not fast sport rides, any reasonably competent rider should be able to participate. We recommend that you be comfortable with your bike and knowledgeable about your(and your bike's) limitations and capabilities. If you have been riding for at least six months you've probably got the minimum level ofexpertise required.

 

EQUIPMENT REQUIRED: A motorcycle in good mechanical condition, helmet,gloves, heavy jacket (leather or heavy material), heavy pants, boots...in other words, sensible riding attire. If you show up in shorts, tanktop, Oakley blades and flipflops on your feet, you _may_be invited to go home. You must also have a valid motorcycle license and insurance. Full leathers are encouraged but not required.* You are responsible for your own safety.

 

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

 

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners.* You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.*

 

2. The Ride: You can ride at a slower pace, you don't need to feel like you have to keep up with the riders in front of you.

 

We'll have volunteer ride leaders leading you on the route thru the hills. Those riders will be designated to you prior to beginning theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany way they can. So feel free to ask them questions on riding, the route, etc.

 

It's important to approach this whole thing with the right attitude.

 

If one of the volunteer ride leaders talks to you, it's meant to be constructive criticism and should be taken that way. After all, the purpose of the Clinics is to improve your skills.

 

We try to ride at a moderate pace, and we hold the speed down on the straights to allow slower riders to catch up. We stop at any intersection where we're turning off to another road and we don'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

 

We'll try to make rest stops long enough so that the slower riders will get a rest, too.

 

Ride Route:* http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

 

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop for a final meeting. After our meeting and bull session, the group breaks up and everyone is on their own.* Hope you can find your way home from there!

    Great class. Learned something very useful and applied it during the ride. Wish my bike was able to hold out during the whole thing. Once I wrench it back into shape, I will definitely attend more.
    Enjoyed meeting the folks that I did and talking with you.

    Fine with me, meet Emeryville Starubucks 8:00, 8:10 KSU, and stop along the 101 in SF whereever Wyatt wants to join 8:20-8:30, arr Belmont 8:50. ** Anyone else who wants to join is welcome. When I first got back into riding, going over the bridges was so scary to me for some reason, so any newbs holding back, well now you have an escort to show you that you won't get blown off the side of the bridge. LOL, come on, face those fears!! :-D
