As tradition holds, the First Sunday has been our day to be "Vespa Club Los Gatos - the Active Riding Club." This year, we don't seek to dissapoint. We know Saturdays can be rough so we're opening-up the schedule to really BE "scooter" time. We meet at the Diner of Los Gatos at 10A, allowing everyone to roll-in as they can in the late morning. We will have a group meeting by 1100A and KSU by 1130A.

The Master of Engineering himself, "OopsClunkThud" Patrick will be leading us into what looks to be a very technically challenging ride through the hills. Not to worry, he won't repeat a "fugawi" enduro challenge through areas affected by landslides.
We'll then say our goodbyes at the end-of-the-day in Portola Valley at the Alpine Inn Beer Garden. For those of you leaving us Northwards, it's a few miles away from the 280 Exit; those going Eastward, you're not far from University Ave towards Dumbarton.

Again, nothing is set-in-stone as we're not outta the storms yet. We'll be sure to keep you posted as we go.
Rubber side down!!!
