Saturday August 19
9am meetup at The Beautiful South in Hamilton Va

Classic shifty rides, modern vespas, Tupperware, and motorcycles are all welcome, but we ain't racing. Expect cruising speeds between 45 and 55..

We have HUNDREDS of miles of rolling, scenic two lane roads in the area. Speed limits vary between 25 and 55 mph. I want to call it a 125cc and up ride, but if you can maintain 45mph and have a stand MC registration, you'll be fine. Plenty of chances for fuel stops if your scoot is thirsty. Also plenty of great spots to stop when we are hungry or thirsty.

Our starting point has parking for those who may wish to trailer/haul in and is easy to access from va rt 7.

If you'd like to be involved, please PM me as I do not see this forum on a daily basis.

I'm working on a route plan as we speak. Expect to ride 100 miles during the day.

Working out a route just a bit at a time.

So far we start at The beautiful South in Hamilton VA. WHere folks with trailers can leave a vehicle parked.

Take Harmony church rd to rt 15 south.

15 south to a right on Lime Kiln rd.

then right-ish on Snickersville Tpke

then left on 719/ Airmont Rd. all the way down to US50

Right on 50 to the town of upperville where we will have a chance to fuel up and take a beverage break at The Hunter's Head Tavern.

Continue west on US 50 climbing the mountain and making a right on 601/Blueridge Mtn rd

Climb the mountain, cruise past the Mount Weather Gov't Center( no pics please....) to join back up with Rt 7

right on 7, then a quick right back onto Snickersville Tpke

left on Airmont(again) to a bathroom break at my house.

At this point we are about 55 miles into riding. From here we can decide if we want to go on the "extended" ride or head the 5-6 miles back to the beautiful south. There are TONS more roads I can add to this to keep it going.

Considering a trip up to Lovettsville, then down to Waterford, and then a Stop in Paeonian Springs at Vino9....a great little patio/BBQ place.

This is gonna be FUN.

IMPORTANT UPDATE!

Had a little throttle cable on the scoot last night on my way home from pre running some of the route last night and I am in the middle of pulling a new cable through this morning.

If you are coming on the ride and I am NOT at the Beautiful South by 930am, please feel free to call/text 703-xxx-xxxx

My absence would mean I am still threading a cable. I will be on the ride, I will have this done, and I will give you directions to my home address. It is but a few minutes ride to the west and we can leave from there!
