When leading a spirited group, this one stands out. So I've made it a point to ask the other riders to think of the day's ride as a cool-down lap. It's when you can breathe and take the glory of the day in, cruising back safely to your pit/home.

Although I've been riding with the BARF North Coast Contingency for 3 years, I'm new to riding group BARF rides, so, thank you for having these words of wisdom and tips to keeping it safe and fun for all.

This years Behind the Redwood Curtain Rally was awesome good rollicking fun, but also safe and well organized, now I see why.

Thanks for the tips, I'm looking to get involved with some group rides, buuuut being a bit of a shy guy (Like that little mario creature thing! O, I haven't really known where to look, and you adepts are intimidating sometimes. <.< Not that I think any of you are carnivores or anything! D: Here I go rambling on again...

I will say I randomly sat in on what appeared to be a meet on labor day over on foothill (I think? <.<) after spotting a gixxer I recognized on 580 on the way to cyclegear to replace my brake lever. @.@

Anywho, hope to see quite a few of you through the turns. ^__^

Anyone know good trauma training for weekend riders

Reading the post about ride safety and what to do after an accident leads me to think we should have at least 2 of our riding group get some training. Anyone know where we can get some good trauma and cpr training, especially if they have a motorcycle emphasis?
