Second Sunday Introduction
Morgan Jones (mjones2@morganjones.org)

2nd Sunday varies from 1-2 people having breakfast and going home to 12-15 or more breaking up in to multiple groups.

Sometimes someone shows up with a map, other times somebody suggests a ride and everyone follows.

The official story is 8:30 if you want to eat breakfast with a 9:30-10 departure. That varies depending on the ride plans and how lazy everyone is feeling.

The rides sometime go until 10pm, but there is almost always a group that peels off earlier in order to get home in time for dinner.

We pretty much always leave the city, it tends on the spirited side but there are usually some slower and/or less experienced riders taking up the rear. You will never be chastised for being too slow but you'll probably hear about it if you ride beyond your abilities or endanger other riders.

We are *not* competitive any more than friendly jokes been people that know each other well. We have had newer riders hurt themselves because they felt they needed to keep up.. No one has ever complained about waiting for a slower rider. Having to call 911 on the other hand really screws up a ride.

The core group is close-knit and competent. There are a few very good riders that most of us know better than to try to match pace with.. Most of us are very passionate about motorcycles and riding.

In short: as long as you ride within your limits, like good food and want to actually ride you'll fit in well.
