Zipping the Hills III in 3D!

This is quickly becoming one of our more popular rides. We've received a lot of requests to re-run it and some folks missed out last time due to rain. So here we go again!

RSVPs: We've bumped up the size of the ride and may run it as two groups but it's still limited due to the route and stops. Please only RSVP +1 for another scooter, not a passenger. See our RSVP Limit Policy if you have questions.

RSVPs open Wednesday, 2/20 at noon.

Meet at Trails at 10:00. Come early if you want coffee, a scone, etc. Kick Stands Up (KSU) at 10:30am!

The route will begin at Trails, with a stop at  the Hollywood Reservoir overlook. From there, we'll go to Mulholland Dr. and start zig-zagging the hills via Nichols Cyn, Franklin Cyn, Benedict Cyn, then Beverly Glen for lunch. From there, it's down, then to Bel Air and up Roscomare. We'll then head straight across Mulholland back to Hollywood. Final destination TBD.

LUNCH STOP: We will stop for lunch at Beverly Glen Circle in the Hills. There are several restaurants, two delis and a Starbucks, plus they will be having their Farmer's Market that day. You can also brown bag it if you like!

ROUTE MAP: http://is.gd/syR9ZF
Route ends back in Trails!

This route includes some difficult terrain and sharp curves. We'll keep the pace fairly easygoing, though, and make stops when sensible. This is a more scenic/enjoyable cruise than an ass-hauler, but it's not suitable for beginners. Experience in canyons or riding Mulholland Dr. recommended.

As always, please read our Policies and Group Riding Guidelines before joining a ride:

    West Side and South Bay riders: I'm planning a group ride from Harbor City (possibly) via Manhattan Beach (definitely) to the starting point at Trails Cafe.

    This will be the 4th time I miss this ride.. :-/
    Still no scooter.....

    March 26, 2013

  • Eric

    We will NOT run this ride during or even immediately rain. This isn't a good one to push that on; we did last time, but this is a bigger group and it just won't work. If we have to cancel, we will do so Friday and send everyone an email. We will then reschedule and give all who RSVPd for this one first crack at the new date.

    2 · March 26, 2013

  • Syl

    I hope it doesn't rain! :/

    This is a fun ride, but I went with the small group led by Liam so I'll bow out and let some other lucky person experience this great ride!

    1 · March 25, 2013

    • Liam

      That's very nice of you Jeff. It is a fun ride. Glad another gets to experience it. And thanks for coming along on the ride yesterday. It helped and I think I got it down now.

    Sounds fun, I'll be out of town

    I know it's to early to panic, but just watched weekend news. They are calling for chance of rain next Saturday.....wait and see.

    Would love to join if a spot becomes available. Kindly let me know if I join.

    March 18, 2013

    • Eric

      Hi, David, you should get an automated email if you're confirmed for the ride. Most people on the waiting list get added by the time the ride occurs.

      March 20, 2013

  • Robert M.

    Good morning, to all. I want to add a luggage compartment to my scooter and need to know where's a good to go and buy.

      I rock a milk crate spray painted silver!

      March 16, 2013

    • Eric

      Hey, Robert! Probably best to post this in the General Discussions part of our Discussion Board! Lots of places to get top cases. :)

      March 17, 2013

  • Richard B.

    Yea, pushed up to the attending list. Really looking forward to this ride.

    Dangit. I need to change my RSVP to no. And this was finally going to be my first group ride too! :(

    March 8, 2013

  • Eric

    Map has been revised. Mostly changes to make it more GPS-friendly, but we will be taking back roads from Beverly Glen to Stradella instead of Sunset. That Sunset section always causes problems!

    March 6, 2013

    • Syl

      also make sure coldwater will be ok. I saw on the news something about possible closure/1 lane each way or something like that to repair water mains or what-not!

      March 7, 2013

    • Eric

      Good point!Coldwater will have a partial closing north of Mulholland, so we'll be okay with the small bit we need to ride.

      March 7, 2013

  • charles b.

    I will have a passenger.

    March 4, 2013

    • Eric

      Cool. If you've ridden any of those roads (or similar) 2-up, you should do fine. We keep a decent pace — not too fast for this one.

      March 5, 2013

  • Eric

    We've made some additions to out Group Policies. All members must read them. http://www.meetup.com/LAScooterGroup/messages/boards/thread/10410868

    March 2, 2013

  • Eric

    Since we now have a waiting list, a few reminders: PLEASE change your RSVP if you're unable to make it, even if you're on the wait list. This will allow others to attend. If you're on the wait list, keep an eye out for notifications of being confirmed. It's rare for people on the wait list to not get confirmed for the ride by the time it comes around.
