Well, the Sunday, July 22nd ride didn't happen. This was in part
because of the rainy morning weather and in part due to a technical
issue the prevented the Ride-Captain from accessing the internet.
This kept Tim from getting info out to where and when the ride would
be and also from getting people's phone numbers from our contact
list. For future rides we will endeavor to have the info posted
further in advance plus the Ride-Captain for a particular event will
have a print out of club members names and numbers.
On that note, anyone who believes that they will be coming to a ride
should be sure the Ride-Captain for the event is aware you plan on
attending. This will make coordinating the event much easier.
Sat Aug 11th - Skooter-Du 2 (Minn-Max Ride-Captain: Adam)
Sun Sep 9th - A southwest ride (Ride-Captain: Adam)
Sat Oct 6th - A northwest or northeast ride (Ride-Captain ???)
SKOOTER-DU 2 RIDE August 11th
As already announced, we plan on tying in with The Regulars Vintage
Scooter Rally, Skooter-Du 2. We'll meet at 10am for Breakfast at
Bruegger's Bagel, 4412 France Ave S. Minneapolis. Registration for
Scooter-Du 2 is $10, due at that time and includes a patch and lunch.
At 11:15 am everyone rides out to Minnetonka, stopping at Shaver Park
in Wayzata for a cook out, and some beach time. There are evening
events and more activities on Sunday for those who wish to indulge.
There are also Friday night activities for those seeking an earlier
start on the fun. For more info on Scooter-Du 2, pop on over to their
As I said before, my wife's cousins are visiting from California, so
for myself I'll only be able to do the Saturday breakfast, ride, and
WEEKNIGHT RIDE August 16th
My last message on this topic brought up the possibility of a
weeknight ride, meeting at some coffee house to discuss plans for the
club followed by a short scoot around the city lakes. Some folks have
expressed interest, but finding a time is difficult at best.
Based on the info I have, I've selected Thursday, August 16, 2001.
The question is when and where. I'm good friends of the owner of
Boathouse Coffee at the corner of Cedar Ave South and 42nd Street
East, so I purpose this as the starting location. After we meet, we
can head south a few block and pickup Minnehaha Parkway, then head
west to ride around, Lakes Harriet, Calhoun, and Lake of the Isles.
Since this is an after dinner thing, would meeting at 7pm and
starting the ride at 8pm work out?
