Thanks to Stacy for setting this up, this is a great opportunity to promote our sport and a chance to help new riders who may otherwise not get out and lose interest in motorcycling.
2009 Mid-Valley Newbie Ride, May 9th

WHO: new riders who
- have a valid ODL and motorcycle endorsement
- have 1000 miles of riding experience on the bike you are currently riding
- have very little or no group riding experience
- have very little or no twisties riding experience
We will be riding in groups of 5 or 6 riders (including experienced lead and sweep riders). Depending on the turnout, we may end up with multiple groups, in which case departure times will be staggered.
PACE: 100% newbie. Posted speed limits will be strictly followed in all turns. The lead rider may choose to go even slower if necessary. We expect the ride will take 3 or 4 hours depending on road conditions and the pace chosen by the lead.
