Johnson Valley Noobs Ride

Dec 27th and 28th, camping at Meads Lake.

Basically a noobie ride, and as always advance riders are welcome.

No planned ride yet, but the idea is to do some dirt ride training and explore the area including vicinity. You can ride, truck, trailer it, there's plenty of wide open space. Bring your motorhome or camper if you want.

See below for the location.

Maybe I'll get sick on Friday

Bob, the helicopter tour is optional!

Fellow noobs before these guys make us shit in our pants, the plan is limit all rides to easy and mild. We can do some training rides but that's up to the individual. The rest of the ride will be exploring and sight seeing. I've never been to Joshua Tree NP, and that's one place we gotta see.
