    mzdagrl's Annual Slowbie Newbie Ride

    Well, it's been a while coming, but I think I may have decided on a date....route is still TBD.

    Saturday July 28th (rain date Sunday July 29th).

    Kickstands up at 9AM (from wherever we depart from) - likely southern NH, possibly in the Jaffrey area.

    Duration will be roughly 3-4 hours.

    Pace: slightly above speed limit (aka normal travel speeds). I am not out to get tickets or win prizes, no one is scouting the next big thing in roadracing.

    There is an 8 bike limit (not including myself and my sweeper).

    Why it's a "Newbie" ride: so many newbs aren't terribly familiar with group ride rules, or comfortable riding in a large group for their first time out. It is a way to get to meet other riders in a smaller ride setting, and get a feel for the basics of group riding without the (inherent/intrinsic) pressure to keep up a pace that may be near the top or above limits. It is also a great way to get a loved one out on the back for a group ride that is a more two-up friendly pace.

    As always, all experience levels and motorcycles are welcome (even scooters).

    Requirements:
    -Willingness to have fun
    -Basic road gear, including (but not limited to) long pants, closed toe shoes, a protective jacket, helmet, gloves and eye protection. Jeans and sneakers are OK, but you may catch shit for it (heck, Rob did last year).
    -Acceptance of tips from other riders

    I've done a couple group rides but SO has only been on the bike in groups of 2 or with me.

    Sounds wonderful.

    Jaffrey is right around the corner from me. I'd be interested to see what roads are chosen. I've been on one group ride before, but I definitely need to work on my "group etiquette".

    I will be coming from south of Boston. So I hope the meeting place is closer to the NH/MA border.

    I can say whether or not I can make it once the meet up spot is posted and if it is close enough to MA.

    15 mins is too far? J/K it's just north of Winchendon, MA. With any luck we have a buddy near there who will join us. Just got a bike last week.

    Spots are filling rather quickly...if there is enough interest this year, I may do a round 2 in August to get those who can't make it.
