  1. The 100... no wait... 200 rider ride!!!
    Date -- Saturday, July 7th.
    The Route -- Big Ranier Loop to Yakima

    Meetup is at 9am SHARP at RMC.
    BRING $10 cash. $5 for the BBQ, $5 for entry to Mt Ranier National Park on the return trip!!!
    Proceeds from the BBQ (if there are any, there might not be) go to sponsor PNWriders in the Seattle 100. There will also be a spot there for further donations.

    DON'T FORGET TO PRE-REGISTER OR YOU MIGHT NOT GET TO GO!!! Team leaders are using their discretion on whether they'll allow non-pre-registered riders to join their group. If you don't pre-register, there's a good chance you'll get left behind or be stuck in group 14 when you wanted to be in group 2. To register, go here -- http://www.pnwriders.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=113 -- then pick a group and post up in that group's thread. The leader will add you to the group. Then on game day, just find the guy wearing the teeshirt that matches your group's #.

    CURRENT COUNT -- 199+
    WE STILL NEED ABOUT 2 MORE SWEEPERS!!!

    Itinerary:
    -Meet up at RMC at 9am SHARP, and be gassed up!!!.
    -Big rider meeting.
    -Break up into 10 groups of about 10-20 people based on pace: Fast, Medium Fast, Medium, Medium Slow and Slow groups. Have rider meeting with individual groups.
    -Groups roll out 2-5 minutes apart.
    -Gas Stop at Whistlin' Jack's Lodge for smoke/gas break/stretch.
    -Gas Stop and Groups meet up at Many's Market/Gas Station/Bait Shop in Naches.
    -All 100+ riders ride from Naches to Yakima as a group... right through the middle of town scaring the locals.
    -BBQ at Ninja Girl's house.
    -Groups start rolling out at about 2:00 or 3:00pm, split up at I-5.

    Route:
    Roughly, we'll be taking chinook pass one way, and white pass the other. There is an exact route, but I'm not going to post it. PM a leader if you want it. Some of them have it already, some of them know it by heart.

    NEW RULES
    This ride is getting too big, and there's been a lot of talk about using it to get some support going for a charity. I want to make sure that everyone understands a few things:

    1) No stunting. A 150 or 200 person ride is no place for that. I think stunting is awesome, just not on this ride.

    2) No excessive speeds. We're all grownups, and I don't presume to tell the Captains what pace they should lead their groups at. I don't presume to tell individual riders what pace they should follow. We all ride our own ride on these group rides. I just want to make it very clear that I am not endorsing or encouraging speeding, especially excessively. This is not the ride for that. Kick back, enjoy the scenery, get some food at the BBQ, and take a couple of corners at your pace.
    **REALLY REALLY REALLY DON'T SPEED THROUGH MT RANIER NATIONAL PARK!!!**

    3) DON'T BLOCK TRAFFIC!!! One of the big reasons we're breaking this group up into teams is to avoid blocking traffic. If you hit a red light, stop at it. Don't violate cager's right of way. There's always time to catch up, and nobody is going to get ditched in the middle of nowhere. This is even more important when we get to Yakima. They are used to dealing with drug gangs and hard criminals... plus they all ride Harleys. Be nice to them, respect them and the law.

    4) There are a lot of people going on this ride, so don't be suprised if some of Washington's finest are interested in it. If you are stopped, be polite and respectful. You don't just represent yourself, you represent PNWriders and all motorcyclists.

    5) Show up with your endorsement and your gear. Me and the other leaders are not your mommy, so we won't be checking endorsements/permits/etc. I'm saying right now that you should be an endorsed rider to come on this ride. Your gear is your choice, but if anyone shows up in shorts and flip-flops, you'll probably be directed into the RMC gear store.

    6) No unsafe passing. Keep it legal, don't scare the cages. You don't want to be the one that ruins it for 150 other people.

    7) If you're bringing non-pnwriders people, let them know about this stuff ahead of time. Also let them know that they'll be in group 7 or lower.
    =8=8=8=8=8=8=8=8=8=8=8=8=8=8=8=8=8=8=8=8=8=8=8=8=

    Other Notes:
    --There will be a meeting for all leaders and sweepers the night before the ride. We'll go over the plan and make sure everyone is on the same page.
    --Because of the huge number of riders, we'll have a support pickup and a support SUV sweeping the entire ride.
    --MAKE SURE TO BRING $10 CASH!!! You'll need $5 to get into Mt Ranier National Park, and $5 for the BBQ.
    --Some people may split off and ride back via I-90 to shorten the day. That's fine, just make sure you let a leader or sweeper know you're heading back.




    We'll split this up into 10 mini-groups of 10-15 people based on ride-pace; fast, medium-fast, medium medium slow, slow...


    IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN ON ONE OF THESE GROUP RIDES, READ THIS -- http://www.pnwriders.com/forum/showthread.php?t=27690

    CHECK BACK ON THIS POST FOR UPDATES.

    Also, I need 10-15 captains and 10-15 sweepers to lead and follow the groups. -- Leaders are responsible for setting the pace, having the mini-group meeting and knowing the route, sweeper are responsible for making sure nobody gets left, and being Johnny on the spot if there is a crash.

    You had to pick that weekend didn't you.... why not the following weekend?
     
  7. I dunno... That's up to the captain and what he thinks of the group I guess. You should still ride your own ride no matter what group you're in. Let's just say your average guy who can ride fairly fast on the street should be medium or medium fast, an average track-day guy would be maybe medium fast - fast, and a fast trackday guy or racer or psychopath on the street should probably be fast or super-fast.
     
  8. Okay, 7/21 it is.
     
  9. Doh, take me off, I will be at motogp checking out the race and UmbrellaGirls that week/weekend.
     
  10. Im going to need alot of practice and group practice before then but nothing else is holding me back from being a rider.
     
  11. Crap, yeah... nevermind... I'm not double booking this with the motogp race. Sorry 02. 7/14 it is...
     
  12. New people are welcome. I'll post a couple of good reads on how to ride with a group. Just ride in the cruise group and you'll be fine. :)
     
  13. I'm down!!
