We've had two great rides recently around Portola Valley/Woodside and then Sierra Road/Calaveras. We need to keep the ball rolling! It would be really nice if we can have one organized ride a month, but no one will complain if there are more.francois said:There is a catch! You need to be ambassadors of Roadbikereview Norcal Forum. That means that you need to be active on this board and you need to help organize/lead some of our future roadbikereview group rides.
The idea for this thread is to discuss arrangements for future rides. We can talk about scheduling and avoid clashes with other local events. Each ride needs a volunteer to run it, a date and a route. Once we get some suggestions, we can start a new thread for each ride with the details and get Francis to make it a sticky. I am the worst choice for a ride leader because I never know what I'm going to be doing any particular weekend. I'm out-of-town or otherwise-committed most of the time.
Any volunteers? Oh, I see that EBrider has volunteered to arrange an East Bay/Mt Diablo ride!
There should probably be some ground rules to make these an RBR ride rather than an arbitrary group ride. I guess the location is basically the Bay Area because that's where the rides so far have been and where "most" of us on this forum are. We should try to stay in the style of the RBR rides, which means a half-day ride typically on Saturday mornings starting at 9am with options for Group A and Group B routes. There should be some social element to the ride, but also some opportunity for good-natured competition. We can include hills of course, but not all rides should be climbing festivals.
