The LASG will once again be heading to the beach to join the South Bay Scooter Club for their yearly rally extravaganza, Swerve 'N' Curve. For many LASG members, this is their first scooter rally. It's a great chance to meet riders from all over the region, see an amazing array of scooters, and take a ride around the beautiful Palos Verdes Peninsula.
This is one of the biggest and most-loved events we do all year! The end-of-ride party was particularly memorable. Check out last year's event and photos here: Swerve 'N' Curve 13 (http://www.meetup.com/LAScooterGroup/events/64348282/).
THIS MEETUP IS FOR THE LASG RIDE TO SWERVE 'N' CURVE ON AUGUST 24. PLEASE DO NOT RSVP UNLESS YOU INTEND TO RIDE TO THE EVENT WITH LASG. If you're meeting up in Torrance, we'll see you there!
Here are the details for the Saturday ride and party from the Swerve 'N' Curve website (http://swervencurve.com):
11AM: Meet at TONY ROMA'S (http://www.tonyromas.com/locations/torrance) restaurant in Torrance (corner of Crenshaw & Lomita Blvds). MAPS will be given out before the ride, so be sure to get one. PLEASE GAS UP BEFORE THE RIDE, as we will NOT be stopping for gas on the route.
12noon: Ride leaves for the original, and often-copied, SOUTH BAY SWERVE 'N' CURVE ROUTE through Palos Verdes.
After doing the beautiful Swerve N Curve route, we will again be ending the ride at the home of South Bay Scooter Club member, Mac McClellan. Mac has a great party backyard at his house, on an acre and a half of land just behind the Wayfarer's Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes. Be sure to bring your bathing suits as Mac has invited everyone to use his nice-sized swimming pool and lounge area, where the band, THE CALIFORNIA CELTS (http://www.californiacelts.com), and a DJ, will be playing for our entertainment!!
FREE food and drinks will also be served; Mac will be serving keg beer for everyone to enjoy, as well.
There will also be a Scooter Show, with awards for Best Vintage & Best Modern Scooter given out after the judging.
Should be a Swerve N Curve Party for the history books, so don't miss it!
Please note that the Swerve 'n' Curve rally and party are organized by the South Bay Scooter Club, not LA Scooter Group. We organize the ride there and usually ride and return in smaller groups.
Pre-order your Swerve 'N' Curve Rally Packs! Your rally pack will be set aside with your name on it, and you can be assured your shirt size won't sell out. This year's Rally Packs will include a T-Shirt, a Patch, a Pin, a free Raffle Ticket, and a Meal Ticket for the Swerve N Curve Party on Saturday. http://swervencurve.com/rallypacks.html
Meet at Ralph's on Sepulveda at 9:30am and depart by 10:00am.
The route to the South Bay is friendly for scooters over 100cc.
At Ralph's please park near north side of lot, along La Tijera The closest gas stations are on Manchester Blvd., north of our meetup. There's a Mobil to the west and a Chevron to the east. Come early if you want to make sure to get fully caffeinated before we depart. Please don't show up at 9:45 expecting to have time to wait in line and get donuts.
We'll be doing the noon Swerve ride and afternoon party, then heading back in the late afternoon. (There is also a Friday night event, which we will not be organizing an official ride to.)
The Swerve ride will end at the party in Palos Verdes. Food and drink will be provided by rally sponsor. Since we'll likely be leaving separately or in small groups, everyone should know how to get home from there! The party is close to Wayfarer's Chapel (5755 Palos Verdes Drive South, Rancho Palos Verdes, CA).
