  • Flapjacks (Tres Pinos)

    36.790348 -121.321411

  • Ride or Drive ~ come Sat or Sun or Both ~ Camp/Tent or Hotel/Motel or B&B
  • Jean-Michel's 1 year anniversary of passing is on April 1.  Jenny would like us to do something really nice and fun in JM's honor and in his memory.  

    We have plans for the entire April 1-2 weekend.  There will be a Saturday ride.  There will be a Sunday ride.  And in between there will be plenty of drinks, laughs and dancing under the stars.  This is a potluck, do bring something that you like.

    You can come for Saturday.  Or come for Sunday.  Or plan to spend the night and do both.  You can bring your tent and camp, or stay at a hotel/motel or B&B.  

    Saturday after the ride, everyone is invited to Jenny's house for a fun filled afternoon/evening in Prundale (address will be sent to RSVP's via email).  We'll relax and chill.  6-7_ish the party begins.   There will be drinks, refreshments, BBQ, music and dancing under the starts (or inside a tent - if raining).  

    Those who wish to stay the night, bring a tent & your sleeping bag and camp out.  Or stay at nearby hotel/motel or B&B.

    Sunday morning we'll stage  at Jenny's house and ride back.  Those who can only go on Sunday, simply meet us Sunday morning at Jenny's house (RSVP for Sunday and you will receive the address).

    After you RSVP . . . . . . please go to the event post.  There you will see 4 conversations threads, (1) Saturday Ride, (2) Saturday Eve Party, (3) Camping in your tent, (4) Sunday only ride.  This way Jenny can plan headcounts.  

    Map links and addresses will be distributed to those who are coming to the party or for the Sunday morning KSU.

    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.

    ~ I 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.

    ~ I maintain 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 me 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
