A SPECIAL SUNDAY RIDE. Meet and socialize 9:30 AM, pre-ride talk 10:15, ride out at 10:30. (Note that we're starting later than usual.) Speeds will be moderate, suitable for smelling flowers or watching scenery.
Celebrating Cinco de Mayo, we'll start with a loop past Old Town and up to the Serra Museum for a view of the bay we'll be riding around, then down the hill to circumnavigate the country's largest manmade water park. We'll check out all the picnic areas, grassy lawns, beaches, points, bays and back roads and cover the entire shoreline, with plenty of people-watching thrown in. Along the way we can stop for a picnic lunch and perhaps watch the model yachts at play. This one's only about 36 miles, 50cc-friendly and also totally suitable for new riders. Expect to be back at the start by early afternoon.
Check all your scooter's vitals (tires, brakes, oil, coolant, lights, etc.) and top off gas tank before the meetup. Carry lunch, snacks, water, extra clothing, sunscreen, sunglasses, cell phone, etc. We strongly recommend sturdy shoes or boots and protective clothing.
Ride maps and/or turn lists will be provided. No scooter will be left behind, whether at hills, stop signs or traffic lights; the "sweep" (last) rider will have radio to the leader.
NOTE: THIS RIDE HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO EXPECTED BAD RIDING WEATHER. WATCH FOR A NEW DATE.
