Friendship Ride 2010 is approaching fast

I’ve updated the The Ride page with our estimate itinerary for Saturday’s ride. I’ll be doing a pre-ride this week to firm up the plans, but you can get an idea of the route we will be taking.

Friendship Ride 2010 is officially set for August 7

We had a great ride last year and I this year is looking even better. For 2010, we will be riding the original loop all the way up to Glacier Point in Yosemite National Park. One of the local businesses has offered to host the after ride BBQ, I will update the site as I firm up the plans. This year looks to be the best yet, I hope to see you there!

New additions to the gallery

I updated the gallery with pictures from the ’08 ride. Thanks to Thayne from our local forum centralvalleyriders.com for the bulk of these pictures. Seems I was too busy talking to everyone to take many pictures this year. 🙂

I hope you all enjoy the pictures as much as I do.

T-Shirts are now available for pre-order

T-Shirts are now available for pre-order, there will be no shirts available for purchase at the ride. I need to place the order by July 17th, so if you would like to purchase this year’s ride shirt, please order now.

If you plan on making the event, please take a moment and shoot me an email to let me know how many will be in your party.

Today I took my annual ride to remember my good friend

Decided this year to take a trip up to one of our favorite spots. As I sat up on the top of the world, with the bright sunny sky to my left, and the dark clouds spitting thunder and lightening to the right, I couldn’t help but wonder if Mike had something to do with the show as it was unlike anything I’ve ever seen.

Days like these are few and far between, we should all slow down from time to time and take in what nature has to offer.

Thank you Mike… Message received!!!

Friendship Ride 2009 is officially set for August 1

Last year was our biggest ride yet. I’m hoping this is year no different. I’ll searching for a local place to host the after ride BBQ. I’ll post up information as it becomes available. Hope to see you there!

The day is almost upon us

It looks like we will be blessed with below normal temperatures this weekend. They are predicting low 90’s for Saturday, which makes for some cool riding weather up in the mountains. Even though the weather will be cooler this year, please make sure to bring enough water to keep yourself hydrated. We will be stopping at a few shops along the way, so if you can’t carry water with you, you’ll be able to purchase what you need when we stop.

Again, if you plan on making the event, please take a moment and shoot me an email to let me know how many will be in your party.

Due to road construction on Road 200, I had to adjust the route this year. I’ve updated The Ride page with this years Itinerary, so please make sure you familiarize yourself with the route ahead of time.

Special thanks to Motohead Racing for hosting the after ride BBQ. This year will be bigger and better than ever and I look forward to riding with you all on Saturday.

Plans for Friendship Ride 2008

I’m still finalizing the plans for this year’s ride, so check back soon for a complete itinerary of the day’s events.

Ride shirts are now available via pre-order only. If you would like to have a shirt for the event, please place your order before July 15th.

If you plan on making the event, please take a moment and shoot me an email to let me know how many will be in your party.

This year will be bigger than ever and I look forward to seeing a bunch of new faces this year as well as all the familiar faces I’ve ridden with in the past.

Friendship Ride 2008 is officially set for August 4

It’s been a while since my last update but the date is set for Friendship Ride 2008. I’ve got big plans this year, but you’ll have to wait a bit longer for the details as I’m still working everything out.

Friendship Ride Loop is official

My intent for the Friendship Ride was to have a different route for each year but unfortunately I quickly realize while out scouting new roads that not all the roads I like to ride are suitable for riders that are not used to the area. It’s hard to find those perfect roads that will be great for every rider and not just for those who know the roads. It’s also difficult to find a route that doesn’t take all day, as a lot of people don’t usually put in the miles that I’m used to. 🙂

I decided this year that the Friendship Ride would have a set route. Last year’s trip seemed very pleasing to everyone so I think it would be quite fitting to make it the official route. Check out The Ride page for more information on the trip.

Ride T-Shirts

Time is running and you need to order your shirts this week if you would like them for the ride. CafePress is currently having a buy 3 get one free sale. Now would be a great time to fill up the closet (like I did!) with a ride shirt and maybe even something from the Biker Friendly shop. 🙂

Again, we receive no money from the sale of our ride shirts as they are offered at the minimum price CafePress has to offer.
