Waiting to cross the river ferry in Millersburg last year
Almost everyone has a 50 or an old 80 in the garage; a fast moped, a 50cc pit bike, a 49cc scooter you bought for the campsite. When was the last time you went somewhere for a ride with it?
Time to dig it out, freshen up the fluids, air up the tires and get ready to ride.
Why you ask? We are doing it AGAIN. It is time to pull out your calender and highlight Sunday May 24 at Noon. We will be leaving Carlisle Cycle and Scooter just after noon and going on a 70ish mile loop over 50cc friendly roads. The ride is targeted at bikes under 100cc, BUT feel free to come along if you only have a larger bike, but you just have to ride along at a 50cc pace ( or lack thereof). If you have a moped, make sure it is a fast one and will do 40 MPH, as there will be some mountain climbs.
The ride will head out to a suprise location for the "kids" that is more fun than a puppy and as sweet as candy. After a stop there, we will give the bikes a chance to stretch their legs as we make the run into Gettysburg for lunch at the famous Lincoln Diner. Then we will set a leisurely pace back to Scoot Carlisle to refuel, buy more two-stroke pre-mix , and maybe tell stories and have a few laughs.
Yes, many of us will be on 50's! The ride will have several stops to allow the bikes and riders to catch their breath. There may even be a few good spots for photos along the way. The pace will be slow, and FUN is on the list. If you think you are too big for a 50, let us try to change your mind.
The rider is 6'3" and the passenger is 6'4" and we made the first one just fine. The uphills just might take a while. See you there! Feel free to call the shop for details or with any questions!
