Scooter Meet-up Sat., Morning, Oct. 11th

The Ride to
Port Hueneme

Well, it was a great first ride! We had a good turn out. There was a nice variety of scooters, including two Vespa LX 150's, three Genuine Buddy 150's, a Piaggio Aprilia Scarabeo 250 and my Bajaj Chetak 150. I was very pleased to see them all arriving at the
library driveway riding in single file. The ride went smoothly. We all stayed together in staggered formation as we scooted over to our destination point, beautiful Port Hueneme Wharf Plaza, where we stopped for some pictures. We didn't stay long due to the wind. Then, we all had breakfast at Friend's Cafe, which was perfect, since we're all new friends! Then, we took a different route home, lead by Paul, and parted ways at Central Avenue.

This club ride was in loving memory of the late Krista Romero (11-8-88 -- 6-9-07) Together, we will keep her dream alive.

Meeting Place: Parking Lot of the new Camarillo Library

4101 Las Posas Rd
Camarillo, CA 93010
(805) 388-5222

Meeting Time: 9:00 AM

Departure Time: 9:30 AM

Things to Bring:
Sack lunch, Bottled Water, Your Camera, Money for gas.
Also, the Santa Ana winds are starting to blow, so jackets, etc.

Food Places:
There's a Subway right on the way on Pleasant Valley Rd. Maybe
we could stop there to pick up a $5 Foot Long? There's also a Taco Bell,
Jack-in-the-Box and a Wendy's all on Ventura Rd. and Pleasant Valley.

Gas:
I spotted only two gas stations on Pleasant Valley Rd. They are both USA Gasoline.
Let's make sure we all have a full tank before we get on Pleasant Valley, though.

Safety:
If any of us have to pull off the road for any reason, we should all pull off with them. Pleasant Valley Rd. doesn't seem to have much of a shoulder to pull off onto, and there is actually a drainage trench. Use caution. Never move over to let a car pass until there is an actual lane for the car to pass. I don't want to ride off into a drainage ditch.
ATG-ATT: "All the gear, all the time"

This weekend, Saturday Oct. 11th at 9:00 AM, we will meet up at the new Camarillo Library located at 4101 Las Posas Rd., Camarillo, CA 93010, library phone # (805) 388-5222.
We will depart at 9:30 AM. The idea is to ride to Pt. Hueneme Wharf Plaza. It looks like a nice place to relax and maybe have a picnic. This would be a ride going North/West on Las Posas, and then taking Las Posas again, going left, passing Ralph's supermarket, and crossing the freeway. Then turning right on Pleasant Valley Rd. and going to Ventura Rd. and turning left. Then a right turn into the Pt. Hueneme Wharf Plaza (Surfside Dr.) and we could all park along the road for a photo with the ocean in the background. There's also those cubical picnic areas and the Pier.
So, I think it will be fun. Then, we can go back the same way we came, or if anyone really knows the area well, we take a different route. Of course, those living in Ventura might want to cruise home from there, but either way, it will be fun. So, we'll see how everyone feels about this route. I would like to hear what everyone else has to say. I'm sure we all have some really great ideas. See you Saturday!

Thanks Matt for putting this all together. My husband and myself had a great time. We enjoyed the morning with all of you. It was nice to meet new friends.
Thanks for dedicating the ride to our daughter Krista. I know she was with us in spirit.

The pictures came out pretty cool! Let's do it again soon.
