Our group just hit 100 members! The rain has left, it's getting warmer, we have one more hour of daylight?it's time to get out and ride. We've scheduled 2 upcoming Scooter Meetups that should be a lot of fun. Derby Dolls Night Ride, March 28.
Meet in Silverlake, go for a nice ride through the area, and wind up at the Doll Factory on Temple for exciting rollerderby action. There will be a post-derby ride for some grub, beverages and socializing. This is an all-scooter ride, but the Derby Dolls event is 21+. Please purchase tickets to the derby in advance; these events sell out.

If anyone has suggestions for Silverlake/Echo Park routes and a post-derby spot, let me know.May Ride and NoHo Scooters BBQ, May 2
The "official" kickoff of the local scooter season. This will be an all-scooters ride through the Hollywood Hills and along Mulholland concluding with a shindig at NoHo Scooters. Route and some details TBD, but if you RSVP "yes" or "maybe," you'll be emailed any updates.

I am sure we'll do a PCH/Neptune's Net ride once it warms up a bit. Still hoping to get out to Glendale's Moonlight Rollerway for some rollerskating. And I'm also working on a modern architecture scooter tour of LA.
For those wanting to do longer rides this summer, we have a few things brewing, including the big ride to San Jose in July. Info on that one here: http://scooter.meetup.com/285/messages/boards/thread/6375942
