We will be riding out on Sunday, November 3rd, to the Bluffs overlooking the Pacific near Davenport, in Memory of Kari Prager. This will be our fourth ride in Kari’s memory and we will be doing what Kari would traditionally do on this ride, have a picnic lunch! Bring something to share, or you can pop across the street and get something at the store. Anything you can bring to share will be welcome and appreciated. Once at the bluffs we will set up our picnic, reminisce about Kari and just enjoy a very beautiful spot on the coast with our riding friends. I will be sure to have the traditional Landjager and Emmenthaler for all to share!
We will be leaving the CalMoto parking lot at 9:00 am. Donʹt forget to set your clocks back Saturday night. Please be gassed up and ready to go at that time. Weʹll have a short safety meeting before the ride, and a sign‐out sheet for contact information if needed. As always, please arrive a little early and give yourself a chance to relax and socialize before the ride.
Weʹll gather on the bluffs above the Pacific at Davenport, and the views should be spectacular. As always, we gather to remember the many roads and vistas he introduced us to over the years and the vista at Davenport was one of his favorites.
This ride is a rather short one, on some lovely country roads. It should be OK for beginners with some experience. There will be some tight, narrow roads in sections. This ride will be conducted at a leisurely pace fitting for a memorial.
From the shop we will head up Charleston road to Page Mill and Hwy 35. There we will head north to Aliceʹs and then down La Honda road to San Gregorio. At Hwy 1 we will head south towards Davenport. At the north end of Davenport we will park on the right side of the road, in a big dirt parking area. The walk out to the bluff is very short, about 300 yards, and as always along the coast, watch out for poison oak.
After the ride, we will not try and keep the group together and there are many great ways to find your way home.
Please, be sure to stay within the safe limits of your riding ability. As Kari would say, ʺThis is a social ride, not a race, so always ride within your comfort zone and work on being the smoothest rider on the ride, not the fastest. True riding skill is built on the practice of smoothness, control and a sense of the right line, not on trying to go fast.ʺ
I hope you can join us for some memories, have fun and be safe!
