I was hoping for a group ride in the dirt.
A Bay Area forum, SBR, had organized their second "Newbie" ride and since I had attended the first one last year I had made a bunch of new dirt riding buddies.
I've been riding dirt for what seems like my whole life, when really it has only been 2/3 of my life. OK... 30+ years.
I like to be able to use that experience to help others learn when I can. Besides, it's just another excuse to get out and ride!
Anyway, the Newbie ride had been planned for almost 3-4 weeks.
There turned out to be 75 people (or more) when the day rolled around.
You can see my description of the day and pictures on SBR, HERE.
