Italian Fest and scooters!

First off, Euro Bike Night was a lot of fun… the Easy Peasy crowd won a ton of the raffle prizes.  (Good for them.)  While I was there I got a flyer for a scooter-friendly event coming up next weekend….

Italian Festival.  Unfortunately entrance isn’t free, but it is a good festival.  Euro-Bike “ride-in” night is Saturday night, October 11th… check out the italian fest flyer for more details.

Sept EuroBike Night

Only 2 left this year, September’s is this Tuesday.  It is at the Bank Block – Grandview Ave at West 2nd Avenue in Grandview.  Tuesday, September 30th, 6 – 9 PM.  Reserved 2-wheeler parking on both sides of Grandview Ave.  Score!

There will be T-shirts for sale at special prices, a raffle as usual, and pre-registration for a “First Annual Haunted Poker Run.”

Thanks to Mike for the reminder.  See more details (and photos from past Euro Bike Nights) at the official website.

Happy Dance!!

Here are for more upclose views.

The Cutters SAQ page states that pre-registration is closed, so register for $16 onsite.  This is the official schedule with map, but in my mind Saturday is not to be missed.  Why?  Breakfast (included free with your registration) at the North Market from 9 – 12. I missed this last year and I refuse to miss it again!  Then the big ride, this time out to Delaware.  Dinner after the ride is back in the Short North, at the store The Kickstart.  Sweeeeeet!

SAQ 11 starts this Friday

Kicks off this Friday… If you are a scooterist, then you should go. (Registration is $14 and includes a T-shirt, all sorts of free food, etc.) If you just wanna watch, I’d recommend you go down to North Market this Saturday. Around noon the big ride heads out. It’s awesome to see literally hundreds of scooters leaving North Market. If you are interested in seeing a wide variety of scooters, talking to real riders (not just sales people), and being part of the biggest scooter event held in Columbus (even just as a spectator), you should go.

For more information go to the Cutters page.This is the 11th year for SAQ, and from what I hear the Cutters always put on a good show. (My first was last year, but it was a blast!)

If you are wondering what to expect, you can read my thoughts about last year on my SAQ page.

Information Session on Scooters

This Saturday (Sept 6th) there will be an informational session at the Northwest Library.  (2280 Hard Road)  It runs from 10 AM – 12:30 PM, although if you come a little early you can check out the scooters before.  You can also stop by after 12:30, if you can’t make the panel discussion, and chat with anyone still there.  I will be one of the panelists.  (oooooooh, I’m a celebrity!)

Write-up of the event from the local paper

Quote: The program will begin with a scooter overview provided by a long-time scooterist. The session will focus on what types of scooters are available and what to look for when choosing one. We’ll also spend time addressing basic laws, licensing and insurance issues that come up when purchasing a scooter.

This is being put on by a scooterist who also happens to be a librarian.  (Not me)  So while some dealers will be there, it is not a sales type of event.  It is informational.

Note: the Library is sort of joint between Columbus and Worthington.  Scroll to the bottom of this page and look for the marker #2, up north of Sawmill and I-270.
