Meet and Time?

well i could come on this bike, assuming Violet's Ninja250 qualifies as a mini-bike


how i'd love to have 3 of every bike.... garage space being the limiting factor
i'd kill a man for a 8 car garage... thats all i want... just an 8 car garage.... thats not too much, is it ?

I have a one car garage, a car, and 5 bikes so don't let the garage space be your excuse
Mini bikes can be stored in entryways, hallways, offices, bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens, closets, and storage facilities just to name a few.

Heres some favorites:

Here's a fun way to get to 35 from 1 without enduring the traffic involved with 92–starting with Higgin's Canyon Road, Purisma Creek, Verde, Lobitos Creek, including Tunitas. Going into/out of Woodside through Kings Canyon is another fun bit of road.



Pescadero, Alpine, and Page Mill


Big Basin Loop–these are a blast and each section can be employed in designing a fun route


Hwy 9 into or out of Santa Cruz is a well known favorite.
All great suggestions, Rob. However, I may not have the window of time to make it a full day of riding.

Here's what I had in mind, 84 through Pescadero, then the reverse ride and maybe finish off with Alpine, 35 back to 84. Or 35, 9 into Boulder Creek, then the return back to 84. We could possibly include the return up through Bear Creek to 35, 84.

Speaking of, what are the road conditions to be expected through this route of 35? I have been never through this portion.

As far as a meet point, I can meet you at the 280/84 or at the STP / Alices

When planning the meet time, please keep in mind we will be riding down from SF. Also we can plan a full day ride broken into two halves so those who want a shorter ride can split half way and the rest can continue on the rest of the route.

The more northern the meet point the better for us if meeting in the AM, if PM meet then it doesn't matter.

Most certainly, AJ!

I can meet you as far north as 92, if that helps......where we had met some years back when we did the 2 stroke ride.

here's a lil' something to refresh your memory


youtu.be/PsHkMgkkBps

Or give me an estimate of how long it takes for y'all North Bay folk to get to either 92, 84 or the STP so that I can factor in for those of us meeting together from the South and or East Bay.

Friday 25th or Sunday 27th, I'll run it by the family and let you know which date I'm free to ride

Maybe you can post something on BATS or muster up some of your other buddies to join in on the ride too.

Lets focus on a couple routes;
- a loop ride around the 84 area.

- I kinda like the hwy 9 ride into Santa Cruz, but we need to factor in traffic from Boulder Creek through Felton (also the return) and tank capacity for those who join us.

Post up which route any of you would like to include in your venture from the North Bay ....... and I appreciate you guys making the effort making it over this way
