Hey, Mike, thanks for contacting me yesterday and getting us out on our first impromptu run. Aside from the little scare we had up towards the top I think it was still a good ride. It was a welcome sight to have someone else along to experience some twisties with and watch how they handle them. Hopefully it'll be just our first of many more to come. And maybe we'll find a few more to join us.
There's going to be a group ride of mixed bikes on Sunday the 20th. Most likely meeting in Grants Pass (depending where everyone is coming from) around 9:30. The trip will take us along 199, through the redwoods, then into Crescent City to have lunch at the Chart Room on the ocean.
So if there's any Oregon lurkers that'd like to join the fun for one more hoorah before the weather turns foul, this would be a nice trip. There's four maybe five riders so far.
This isn't my ride but figured to throw it out there.
In case there are more Portland area folks out there, I'll sound off. Just started riding a couple weeks ago, about to cross 100 miles of commuting and riding around town.
I'd be happy to have chances to get out and ride in groups for fun. I do have a wife and kids and a bunch of other hobby commitments that make scheduling in advance a must for me, but evenings and weekends are doable.
