July 17-18, 2015: Tour di Mari 8!

I Love the 80’s!


The Westenders Tour Di Mari #8 is heading your way!  This year’s theme is a turn back in time to the the beloved 80’s! Spandex, Hair Bands, Video Archades, Mullets and Walkmans… come on, you know you loved it!

It seems like things were so much simpler back in the 80s – so we too will be aiming to keep our Rally simple.  We are going to reduce our normal three day affair to just two days – Friday night and Saturday.  We’re not offering rally bags, rally t-shirts, raffles or Friday night barbecue – we’re just going to gather with friends, visit, have some fun and go for some rides. We’ll be selling a commemorative Rally Patch for just $5.  Show the patch on Saturday for a FREE lunch.

Please save a spot on your riding calendar for Tour di Mari 8 – Lovin’ the’80s, which will be happening July 17th and 18th. See our Rally Page for a detailed schedule.

August 8-10, 2014!

The Westenders Tour Di Mari #7 is underway!  This year’s theme is a turn back in time to the old west when cow pokes and ranch hands spent entire days set upon their saddles. We too will pay our own branded homage to these earlier ancestors by filling an entire weekend full of riding opportunities where we’ll be roaming the streets of Seattle and the Southend saddled up on our own modern version of a trusty steed.

Please save a spot on your riding calendar for Tour di Mari 7 – Blazing Saddles, which will be happening August 8 through 10, 2014. As our rally poster implies, the posse will be on the hunt for the elusive Robert Brown, aka: RogerTango while out riding the dusty trails, taking in good music, fine food and fun aplenty (what did you expect? It’s a Westenders rally, after all!).

Please check our our Rally Page or visit and ‘like’ our Facebook Page, for itinerary updates.


Hibernation’s over! Time for scooting!

Finally, spring is here!  Sorry about the long hibernation, but both the Seattle scooter scene and your Westenders are alive and well!  Here’s some stuff coming up:

  • Tomorrow night (3/21) Westender Happy Hour will happen at Eastlake Bar & Grill!  The fun starts at 7pm, and everybody’s welcome.  See you there!
  • Saturday (3/23) Seattle’s Soldiers of Destiny SC is hosting their first annual Oyster Scoot!  Ride to various points around the city to enjoy the Northwest’s freshest shellfish and brews!  Visit their FB page for more information.
  • We have a ride to the tulip fields coming next month, and a ‘Kentucky Derby’ – themed ride to Emerald Downs in May.  Keep and eye on this website, or ‘like’ or Facebook page to keep up with the details.

Latest report suggests good weather this weekend, so dust off the scoot and ride!
