If you have a family radio bring it. We'll be on Channel 9

For those of you who don't know me, I'm a chiropractor in Redwood City and quite a motorcycle enthusiast and have been organizing the Doc Wong Motorcycle Riding Clincs for the past 7 years (see me web page at: www.docwong.com).

This event however is a car only clinic.

Not too long ago I purchased a Porsche Boxster and a Miata and a whole new world of fun opened up for me. Learning how to really drive the car has been a fun challange, fortunately much of my motorcycling experience has helped me with that. I'm having a great time in autox and open track days.

The tour/drive will be pretty mellow. The idea is to enjoy the scenery, the drive and to improve our driving skills. So if you're up for a very fast drive, this isn't it.

RIDE ROUTE:
We start at Dr. Wong's office on Woodside Road (Hwy 84) in
Redwood City. We go up Woodside Road, through
Woodside, and on up the hill to Skyline Blvd.

From there, we head down Hwy 84 (name now changed to La Honda Road). We'll stop at the San Gregorio General Store at Stage Road and Hwy 84 for a short break.

From San Gregorio, we go south on Stage Road to the
little town of Pescadero (which is a veritable
METROPOLIS compared to San Gregorio). Then we head east on Pescadero Road a short ways to Cloverdale Road, where we turn south
(right) again. We follow Cloverdale road down to Gazos
Creek Road, where we turn west (right).

We follow Gazos Creek Road to Highway 1 where we can take a break. Gas is available here.

Then take a trip down 1 to Davenport, where we stop for lunch.
After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 again to Bonny
Doone Road, where we turn east (left). Don't turn
right there, or you'll be surprised at the lack of
floatation a set of air bags provide. ;-)

Up Bonny Doon Road to Smith Grade, right on Smith
Grade to Empire Grade. North (left) on Empire Grade to
Jamison Creek Road, down Jamison Creek Road to Highway
236. Right on Highway 236 to Highway 9 in Boulder
Creek. Another short break in Boulder Creek (gas, if
needed), then up Highway 9 (east) to Skyline, where we
assemble at the little rest area there for a final
meeting. After our meeting and bull session, the group
breaks up and everyone is on their own. Hope you can
find your way home from there!
