    Yeah - I'm in the area - Los Altos actually. There are a couple of people around here - Ethan (KR7 i think is his handle) is on campus, and I'm freqently up there (went to school there, GF still goes there).

    I'm down to ride, but more likely on weekday evenings - there are tons of spots on stanford campus to ride (especially for beginners) that are well-lit at night.

    Kevin - interested in tuesday at stanford instead of serra park (assuming it's not dumping rain)?

    When/where are you guys planning to meet on Tuesday?

    I'm at school here and just got a bike/started riding in January and have been looking for people to ride with (just found this site/thread). I've learned how to bunnyhop, backhop, pedalkick, working on sidehop, and would love to ride with some real trials riders.

    I want to go, but I don't think my knee is going to let me. Still pretty swollen at the kneecap, so I can't bend it enough to pedal.

    just thought I'd confirm - remembered to put my bike in the car on the way to work this morning, so I'm in. 6:30 it is.

    Alex - you work 5 minutes from the oval; you have no excuse for not getting to work just a wee bit early and taking off at 6:25. Since Kevin's not coming (with a valid excuse), he's not going to call you out - so it becomes my job :)

    thisthingz - I rode stanford as a beginner for years - if you want to know good spots to ride before I show up, PM me.
