    Redwood Rendezvous V September 24-25, Rio Nido, CA

    Update 9/21
    Last minute details...
    The group ride from the Roadhouse to the Lunch Spot will depart around 10:30am on Saturday. It will take approx. 2 1/4 hours to reach the picnic area, so the sooner we leave the better. One more reason to arrive on Friday! Can't wait to see ya'll up there. Ride safe.

    Update 9/16
    Alrighty, just one week left!
    If you're on the fence about this one, just admit that you're powerless against it and let us know you're coming. You won't regret it. But seriously, T-shirt and food orders need to go in early next week, so let me know asap. I'll see ya'll in a week! Woo hoo!

    Update 9/9
    Two weeks to go!
    The shirt design is finished, and looks fantastic. It's a reference to our fifth anniversary, and an homage to one of our favorite beverages. Can you guess what it is? Hope you can make it! (Yay Turkish)

    Update 8/31
    T-Minus 3 weeks!! I can almost smell it (more than usual even).
    So, pretty please with BBQ sauce on top, if you're planning on joining us for the RR, register using one of the methods below SOON. If you can't swing it just yet but are sure you're coming, put your right hand on a stack of cordura and swear on Tiny's good eye that you're gonna make it, and PM me with your shirt size.

    Update 8/17
    Dust off your Blue Suede Sidi's! Music Saturday night by Rick Lenzi and the Memphis Kings.
    Elvis baby!

    Update 8/11
    James from SuperPlush Suspension will be on hand Saturday afternoon to discuss anything and everything having to do with those mysterious boingy bits on your bike. Fork and shock tuner to the stars, James will also offer service on the spot (overnight) if you just can't wait.
    :clap

    What:
    This year marks the fifth anniversary of the best casual, low-maintenance, trouble-free, grin-inducing, bang-for-the-buck rally the Bay Area has to offer. After a short hiatus the Roadhouse is ready once again to welcome friends, new and old, to the Russian River for a weekend of grass between your toes, pint in your hand, ass in your favorite camping chair chillaxin'!
    We're planning a mellow group ride for all skill levels on Saturday afternoon that concludes with an off-site BBQ.
    Dinner on Saturday is looking like a redux of the awesome shrimp boil with all the trimmings.
    More events for the weekend will be announced here as they are confirmed.

    Where:
    Rio Nido Roadhouse. The Roadhouse sports a full bar with a great beer selection, large lawn for tents (no need to ride after the day's activities), swimming pool (weather permitting), rockin' juke box with outdoor sound, horseshoe pit and secure bike parking. Located on Canyon Two Rd. Rio Nido, CA. +/- 20 miles northwest of Santa Rosa just off River Road (near Guerneville). It is easily accessible from US101, or scenic Hwy 1 (from Jenner).
    N38 31.189 W122 58.693

    I was hoping y'all hadn't had some huge row at the last one I missed.

    I'll do it. Is Skaggs Springs Road the new CHP hangout?
