Redwood Burger N00bie Ride - Sunday, Nov. 11, 1 PM

N00bie ride, Burger to Burger via Redwood Road.

What is it?
It's an introductory ride for new riders on Redwood Road (East Bay), meaning the pace will speed limit-ish - which on Redwood is pretty slow. The point being to show newer riders the ropes involved in doing group rides on twisty roads. You know; speed, line, looking where you want to go, and not fucking with the other riders.

When?
Meet up at 1 PM

KSU?
Kickstands up at 1:15 PM

Where?
The Habit parking lot on Redwood Road in Castro Valley (more room in this lot than in the Peet's lot that's more traditional), 3650 Village Dr, Castro Valley, CA 94546. From there we will ride north on Redwood bound for Sparky's. See? It's a burger ride!

I'll ride back to CV, if you want to come along, otherwise you're on your own once we get to Sparky's.

Setting Expectations:
  • Show up with enough fuel to do at least 50 miles. There's a Chevron station by Sparky's, but no other fuel en route.
  • Gear - wear it or go home. Helmet, jacket, gloves, boots, moto pants, etc.
  • As mentioned earlier, this is a speed limit-ish pace, no passing, it's all about being a newbie introduction
  • If you're an experienced rider, and want to help, you're welcome, with the caveat that the ride and the pace are n00b friendly. If you want to go fast, this isn't your ride.
  • The duration will be short, probably 30 to 45 minutes from one burger joint to the next.

Questions?

If pie is required (and why wouldn't it be?) we can continue to Fat Apples.

That's okay, you're not a newb, and most folks who go to Dirt Bag aren't newbs either. If a newb would rather go to that, more power to them. This is when I have time.

Hmmmmm...burger before and burger after???

I'll probably join in the fun. Started riding this past Dec, and since logged over 20,000mi, so I'm a noob with a twist. Can also share experience of my first accident, that happened three days ago. Spoiler alert, I'm 100% fine, not even a bruise.

Glad you're okay, but this is going to be focused on doing it right. We can trade war stories when it's over.

Sparky's is GREAT! Order the curly fries, milk shakes to go along with any of their burgers. Gas station is right there too!

Colors of the journey

Can I get a bunless gluten free organic vegan burger at one of these restaurants ?
Do double yellow lines have any importance on this ride ?

  • I don't know for sure, but I doubt it.
  • Did you read the into? Noobie pace, no overtaking, which means no crossing the DY.
