Port Hueneme Fisherman's Wharf

We are very lucky to live in a city with so many beautiful roads to ride. Mountain passes, country roads, and fantastic cityscapes are all available to us with a twist of the wrist. LASG loves exploring them all. We regularly prepare new routes and try to present them in a scooter-friendly fashion. This ride gets the group out of the city and into our abundant agricultural country.

MEETUP: 10:00AM
KSU (Kick Stands Up): 10:30AM

We'll start from our Valley startup point at Ventura & Topanga in Woodland Hills. From there, we will head West on Ventura Boulevard and up into Moorpark. Through the strawberry fields, we'll pass and head out to Oxnard. Our ultimate destination will be the Fisherman's Wharf for its shopping and food.

After a break, the group will head back to our starting point via the gorgeous Potrero Road. That will take us to Westlake. Finally, we can get you back to Kanan Road if you want to ride home via PCH. Otherwise we'll end at our original meet up point. It's a nice, easy, scenic ride. You'll like it.

Okay, particulars:
Your scooter should be capable of maintaining 55 mph.

This ride is suitable for intermediate riders; some experience with twisty roads recommended. There's a little twisty part on Potrero, but many scooters have crashed along this stretch. We'll take it slow. Other than that, it's pretty smooth road all the way. Overall distance is 90 miles. It will probably be late afternoon by the time we return to out meetup location.

Full route: http://goo.gl/maps/iUQnA

Please only RSVP +1 for additional scooters, not passengers.

As always, please read our Group Policies and Group Riding Guidelines before attending!

      And miss the other beautiful routes we've been planning all winter long? We've got some good ones all ready to go, just waiting for the weather to get better. Well perhaps later in the year we can redux this one,

    • Eric

      Yup, we have rides planned through Amerivespa and almost to the end of summer. Some are repeats of rides we haven't done in a year, others are all-new routes and destinations. We love exploring! This was a great one, though, so I'm sure we'll do it again!

    It's a beautiful, but rather chilly day here in Woodland Hills. Bundle up and we'll see you soon.

    February 9, 2013

    I hope it warms up a little before I leave in an hour. It's 39 very chilly degrees right now in Dana Point. At least the coffee is hot.

    February 9, 2013

    Just wondering, is there a gas station near the meet-up location. I want to top off before the ride. See you all in the morning.

  • Rusty

    West Side/Beach Cities/South Bay convoy is ON, REGARDLESS OF THE WEATHER (even if it's just me...) In the unlikely event of a 9AM weather cancellation announcement, we'll regroup at the Norm's in Santa Monica (Lincoln & Colorado) to figure out what to do next.

    Hey, everyone, just to confirm: Ride is ON. Rain should stop later tonight/early morning. It's going to be chilly, though. Dress warm!

    If it's still raining at 9 in the morning, we'll send out an announcement, but unless it's a torrential downpour, I'll at least be at the Meetup by 10!

  • Jon & L.

    I'll be riding from Pacific Palisades. Can meet up with the other West Siders at Sunset & PCH (Chevron Station). What time will the group be coming by? I'd suggest a minimum of 30 minutes travel time from Sunset to the 10:00 meetup point via Topanga.

    February 5, 2013

    • Rusty

      The Westsiders Convoy should be arriving at PCH/Sunset by 9:20 AM and head up the coast no later than 9:30. Details here: http://www.meetup.com...­]

    On the return leg, the Sagebrush Cantina is right there on Calabasas Rd right east of Mullh Dr (large open patio, live band always) .. just a thought M =>

    February 4, 2013

    • Liam

      That is a very good idea Mercedes. Remind me and perhaps we can pull into the restaurant and drop off those interested in hanging out afterwards.

    Can't make it. It's Chinese New Year Weekend. Have fun everyone!

    We will be trailering in from Corona, CA. Is there a good location near the meetup location to park a truck & trailer?

    February 4, 2013

    • Liam

      Ralph's parking lot is always full and prone to tow. Try this public park that is close by. So long as you are gone by dark, you should not have a problem.

      Unless there is rain (forecasted for Friday) I will also be riding from Santa Monica, starting at the Santa Monica Mall. Route: Ocean Ave -> California Incline -> PCH -> Topanga Canyon -> Woodland Hills Starbucks

      Heck I may ride to Sunset and PCH just to ride through Topanga Canyon with you. Sure beats Ventura Blvd! Hoping the weather cooperates!
