Bay Area Riders?

So I'm semi new to the board and haven't really introduced myself here. I live in San Francisco and I just had my first real ride in the bay area yesterday:

Down route 35 (skyline blvd), cut over on 84 west to the coast, route 1 south, pescadero drive, 84 east, 35 north. WOW! Talk about taking some turns!!!

If anyone here is from the bay area and wants to ride, let me know and I'll tell the wife to go shopping for the day.

Cheers, Walker

Welcome aboard, Skyline drive is one of my favorite rides. You might want to try Skyline (35) down to 9 to Santa Cruz and back up the coast on 1, on a sunny day it can't be beat.
Watch out for the cops in La Honda though, they're a sneaky bunch.

I ride out in Livermore every other Sunday or so.

If you're a B pace rider, let's hook up.

Tight, bumpy, blind, single->double->single lane, deer, bumpy, tight, gravel, blind.

No driveways, modicum of cars.

Not a good road for newb riders.

bumpy and gravel don't sound like fun to me.
Im a noob to a 919, so if you decide on a more noob-friendly road (one that doesn't have bumps and gravel) then we can ride. just waitin' for the damn rain to stop
