Returning to the East Bay for October's eat/drink/social event!

Kent's place is about 1 mi. from Fruitvale station and 1.5 mi. from Lake Merritt BART station. He has a backyard that is secure where everyone can put their bikes and he's going to set up some benches and lamps / lights for people to sit (close to the bikes). Hopefully it's not a cold evening and we can all enjoy it. 

So as usual, BYOB and food too!

    Thanks Kent, Nice house. I love your bedroom view and wish I had a basement like that, I could store more bikes.

    Thanks Kent for hosting and providing those shish kebabs! You are definitely upping the ante for future hosts.

    Hey Kent - do you have a grill or anything for outside?

    September 24, 2013

    • Kent

      Not right now. I'll get one. Do you want to bring one? :-)

      I've been a little busy, no grill yet but I'm hopeful I'll get one today. It will be "just in time." Went to Trader Joe's yesterday so no one will go hungry.

    Dear all, I look forward to seeing you at my place tomorrow evening. Start time is 7 p.m. and I figure we'll wrap up before 10. My house is blue and white and has a pile of dirt in front of it where a retaining wall was recently fixed. Please enter through driveway (right side of house) and the back gate will be open.

    Directions from Lake Merritt Station: take Oak St. north to 10th, then right one block and then left so you get to the newly christened "Lake Merritt Boulevard." Then take 15th St. E (one way street, with bike sharrows) to 14th Ave. and head left / north. Right on E 20th St. The last 2 blocks up my hill are somewhat steep, I usu. walk the last hundred feet. Here are google instructions:

    Note: if you type in my address into google, it will direct you through San Antonio Park. I don't recomend that! Especially after dark.

    All your dishes are also welcome. I have some beer and wine to share, as well as food, for 8-10 people at least.

    I'm hot for more packrafting trips and would like to find people interested in buying some to share or finding a local business who will rent them. If you want to help make this happen lets talk at Kent's.

      Bummer, you will be missed, Lis!

    Yo sounds great. Can I cross post to the East Bay Bike Camping facebook page? Last year we did the bicycle emergency preparedness workshop together and it'd be great to get us all hanging out again.

      It's definitely going to be next Tues 7 PM @ Kent's place - address above.

    Sometime it would be fun to go to the Sausage/Burger/Beer garden place on Telegraph (does it have a name?) near 22nd. Good food, nice big outdoor patio.

    Sounds like an awesome setup for a social, kinda jealous :)

    If I get a lot of requests to move the venue to Emeryville (as per Franny's suggestion) I will do it. I think it will also be nice to have a group of riders over at my place. We can have true pot luck that way. You just have to travel a little further. I look forward to seeing you on 10/1.

    It's been a while since we've had a social in the East Bay.

      Jean, may I suggest Hot Italian in Emeryville? It's a bike-friendly eatery close to MacArthur BART. Plenty of car parking, too. I could even meet cyclists at BART to show them the way. Bike lights required!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
