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!

Each year, the Westenders Scooter Club’s annual Tour di Mari rally has grown bigger and better.  We all knew that with a restored Vespa to give away, this year’s rally would be big.  Little did we know just how big it would be! (more…)

And the Winner Is…

Happy day as Mother Goose is surprised and delighted to win the raffle scooter! (video: Click)

Tour di Mari 5 is clearly the biggest and best Tour di Mari rally ever!  At the Saturday BBQ, we served over 110 people, and raffled off a ton of wonderful merchandise donated by our sponsors!  Here, you can see the restored 1974 Vespa Super being won by our very own Mother Goose!

But wait, there’s more!  Today is Click’s Photographers’ Ride!  We depart C&P Coffee at 11am for a tour of noted professional photographer Click’s favorite vistas, and well end up in White Center for Zippy’s Burgers first annual Burger Eating Contest!
