Of course RTE = Ride to Eat. It's a rule on our group rides that food must be part of the planning. Food before or at the end and also in the middle. I am sure that most other clubs would choose a destination, but we choose the restaurant first, then figure out the best route to get there and most often a breakfast signals the start of any ride.
I have found it best to keep my videos on the short side, so here is just a compilation of a few clips from Saturday, featuring Dar, "Mistress Scooterpie" as she first arrived on the Causeway across the street from the Empress Hotel. It was the first time I had seen her ride and she handled Mr Motorcycle's donor cruiser like a pro.
I am also introducing Carol & Andrew from ScootersVancouverIslandStyle (sVIs) (<-- link) both of whom are active scooterists in Victoria. Andrew rides a Vespa and Carol has a Vino 125. They organize a lot of group rides and also meet for coffee every Sunday at noon (rides usually follow)
Last year I noticed that Andrew had perfected the "Andrew 2-up method of mounting his Vespa". I was too slow with my camera but today I managed to capture this most magnificent way of getting your passenger on the pillion
