More or less normal counter clockwise loop ride. As always all riders on all bikes are welcome but you should come with license, insurance, good gear, well maintained bike and a full tank of gas. As always volunteers to help lead and sweep groups are always needed and appreciated.

If you have not ridden the Santa Cruz mountains you are in for a real treat both in terms of roads and scenery. However, if you are new to the roads or new to your bike I ask that you start out in the slowest and most mellow group as there are some surprises which have caught even experienced riders off guard.

Is it Saturday yet?

With so little space to write who and what you are, it's good to try and keep a focus on what you are trying to not say. If you get lost, perhaps try and remember the beginning and not the middle of what I forgot to mention. Maybe it'd best to look at what is not said, for there is infinitely more space outside the box then in. And if why dictates our when, and our when is who we were, then by the end of this I'll be someone else, and you'll still be here.

The only thing I find sadder then there never being enough space to write who you are is when there is.

Thanks everyone, especially Gary J for leading the faster group (looked like MrBeer was sweeping, nice!) and Brandon is the ubersweeper, very nice work there, thanks also to Matt for taking point on the way back up 9 and thanks to everyone else for another day of happy memories without injury, death or excessive drama or trauma.

It was nice to see folks riding two up as well. It seems that Busa's don't really get any slower when you put a girl on back. Funny how that works....

I am already looking forward to the next one.

Until then, Ride Safe.

Jason
