Weekly Saturday Ride... Monthy R.O.M.P. (ALL LEVELS RIDE)

As our weekly rides continue into the 2012 season we will be looking to occasionally hook up with other local riding groups.  One such group is R.O.M.P., a group that has been around for years and is a leader in our community when it comes to great rides and trail advocacy.  They're monthly hosted ride, dubbed the Monthly ROMP, will feature locations that are friendly to riders of all levels and ages.  More details will follow for this month's ride, but it's sure to be a great time for all that come out.

-David

Here are the details from R.O.M.P. themselves...


This month we'll ride from Farallone View school into the 4000 acre Rancho Corral del Tierra area which is the newest addition to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. We'll then move on to McNee Ranch State Park and Gray Whale State beach. We'll have a beginner ride leader, intermediate leaders, and depending on the group, we can also do a more advanced ride.

Please RSVP so we have an estimate of group size. (If you'd rather not use meetup, email [masked] to RSVP. thanks!)

The Nitty Gritty--read me!

Meet at 9:30, be ready to ride at 10:00. This is a social ride and some single track skills are required. We'll split into groups, regroup as needed within each group, and ride at a casual pace for about 2.5 hours.

The coastal flowers and trails are in full bloom and while some of the trails can be challenging we'll have a gentle ride in addition to harder rides. There's a meadow section right out of the parking lot that's fun for beginners and kids. Our gentle group might get back a little earlier than the faster riders, but that's ok - our goal is a safe, fun ride for all.

We all ride with helmets--don't forget yours.

Rain will cancel. Check this listing the morning of the ride. We will post a weather update by 7 AM if we need to cancel.

A FEW QUICK NOTES...


  • A Release of Liability Waiver will require your signature.
  • Be prepared for summer coastal FOG. Bring appropriate warm clothing.
  • Please stay with the lead riders (don't go getting lost)
  • We'll be serving food and beverages after the ride!



As always a helmet is required for all SJMTB rides and extra protective gear is recommended if you are tentative about riding down rocky trails.  The ride is relatively short so you shouldn't need too much in the way of supplies.  Water, a small snack, and your basic trail side tools (multi-tool, tube, pump) should be sufficient for these rides.

It's going to be a great year for riding so let's get to it.

    Jeff, if you don't mind hopping over to River Oaks and Montague tomorrow morning I would love a ride.

    If not, David, what time should I meet you near Coleman and Taylor? I can take VTA down there pretty early.

    Yes. So upset with myself. Done that a million times but that time I jerked my bike and stalled on middle of bridge and couldn't pedal cus gears were to high. I turned into the bridge with more speed than usual and regret using front brakes. I should know better. Oh well. Carelessness causes accidents.

    Was it crossing the bridge with the car roof?

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.
