What we're about
We love to just... go! "There is something in human nature, and something in the American character, that will continue to call to those who ride and those who dream of riding to faraway places." We're two locals who strive to do just that, to share our knowledge of the SF Bay Area and our secret (or not so secret) favorite spots along the road. Join us for one of our upcoming rides TBA soon...
🏍️ Gender balanced // All makes & colors (bikes & humans) // All backgrounds welcome // Safety first // 🚫 No drama // Always fun 🏍️
NB. We recommend you have at least 2 years of street riding experience on motorcycle 400cc or larger. You need to be comfortable going 75mph on the freeway, and at least the speed limit on surface streets and backroads.
NB2. This group is sponsored by Native Moto Adventures (https://www.ridenative.com/) as part of their commitment to the Bay Area riding community. Please follow us @RideNative

Ride to the Rio Nido Roadhouse for lunch via Coleman Valley Road. After lunch it's up to you to continue on, head back or stay for a swim. Pace will be "chill". Count on a crowded weekend with lots of cars and bicycles on the roads.
Coleman Valley rd. is beautiful, has good pavement, but qualifies as goaty. There is no centerline and a couple of steep turns.
Be familiar with the route and download to your device. Please arrive with a full tank of gas.
Meet at Bayside Cafe in Sausalito, 9am, 9:30KSU.
