I'm moving down to San Jose for around a year starting this September and I would love the opportunity to meet up with other electrically-driven
people. I'm not sure if you guys consider San Jose part of the Bay Area (perhaps South Bay), but all the same.

How long are these rides and what speeds are considered cruising speeds?

I have a heavy soldering iron that I've used for replacing my 30 amp Anderson connectors, and volt meter, but now I need to service my hub motor, and don't want to buy or own the puller for taking it apart that I might use once every 5 years.
If there are people who don't want to be bugged about meetups and rides, or others who don't do their own maintenance, they can be separate lists: a social one, and another for sharing parts, tools, and shop space.
That sounds like a great idea as well.
