33 for noobs - July 18, 2009, 09:54 PM

I know this is last minute, but I am riding tomorrow all day with 33 as my destination via backroads and 211. If you are not comfortable with big group rides, come on out! I will be going at a "noob" pace and I wait at all stop signs and turns and am ok with you blasting past me if I am going too slow. If you are new to the area and want to learn some nice backroads to some even nicer 'main' roads, then come on out! Hope to see at least someone there.

Meet place: Sheetz in Haymarket

Time: 8:30 (the other ride should be moved out by then) and gone by 8:50

Length: 300+ miles

Lunch: Fox's Pizza


This is a great opportunity for those of you that have always been curious about going out that way and have yet to make it. Oh and the route there will most likely be the route back unless, of course, someone has a better idea.


Go Hokies!!!

myblue750, a few of us are headed up there this morning as well (not sure of our route, sometimes we slab it most of the way there so we have more time on the mountain). At any rate, we'll say hi at Sheetz (this makes 3 groups meeting there).

You're welcome to join us if no one joins you.

Whats the fun in that? Try to keep up with the person in front of you, no matter what your skill level!!! Puker moments and wrecks build character! If your not wrecking, your not getting better.

Agreed. It seems pretty silly to say it's not a place for noobs on sportbikes when tractor-trailers and Cruisers ride over it every day.

The danger is newer riders often don't know what their "Pace" is and take their que from the more experianced rider in front of them. That's fine when the rider in front is riding at 6/10ths or so. But when that experianced rider gets to rt 33 they tend to up their pace to 8/10ths or more. The newer rider following doesn't have enough experiance to note the change, and gets sucked into a corner at a speed they simply cannot handle.

The other factor is mileage combined with pace. An experianced rider can ride at 6/10ths all day long and not get tired. The newer rider is riding at 9/10ths to keep them in sight. That newer rider is going to get sloppy much earlier in the day. They know they've been keeping the rider up front in sight but it starts getting harder and they don't realize why. Next thing you know you're all stopped and picking up pieces of bike on the side of the road.

Now ya'll go have fun!

that road makes anyone better who wants to get better, regardless of skill level. Would be a great place to take an "adopted noob" and show them a few things...build technique - speed will come.
