    Group Day Rides?

    Will there be a list of group day rides and meeting times?

    No "group" rides are planned but there will be ride maps available at the Hospitality booth in the Country Store!

    Find a riding partner.

    If you are a bit tentative about riding alone in a new area the best thing to do is find a riding buddy at the rally. Similar bike is a good starting point.
    Find out how they like to ride before hooking up. It would be good to find someone from the area.
    Demo rides are the closest thing to an organized group ride.

    If you are going to ride the mountain roads around here, I would also suggest a riding partner. If you ran off the side of a mountain alone, it might be a long time before you you are found or anyone else came along to help you. Many of the roads are lightly traveled, have no guard rails with very steep dropoffs.
