“All are welcome. This ride will be 75 to 80 miles long with about 3 hours of ride time not including 4 stops and is 50 cc safe as long as you can pull a top speed of 40 to 45 MPH on the flats.
We will be starting at Alfred’s Cafe
Meet up at 10:00 AM for those who would like some Breakfast, Bloody Marys and or Coffee before we head out.
We will be departing Alfred’s at 11:00 AM.
1st STOP: Starbucks, 1420 Harvey Rd. Auburn, WA 98002 (On the corner of 15th & Auburn Way)
This will be a short stop to get some Coffee take a break use the rest room etc. If any of our Scooter friends from the North would like to meet us here we should be pulling in around 12:00 noon.

We will be taking the Auburn Black Diamond road up to SE Green Valley Rd and that will lead us to our 2nd stop.
2nd STOP: Flaming Geyser State Park. By chance Sat June 4th happens to be free entry in to the park day ;o)
We will stop and take in the Park for a while, take some pictures and stretch our legs before we turn around and head back. On our way back we will make our 3rd stop.
3rd STOP: Green Valley Meats & Mini Market. 12637 SE Green Valley Rd. Auburn, WA 98092.
We will stop for pepperoni, Jerky & Sausages. I can’t ride past without stopping.

Then it’s back to T-Town through Federal Way and hook up on HWY 509 and take the route down through Lakota and take the twisties on to Dash Point, Browns Point, the Cliff House and down Marine View Dr. and around the Port of Tacoma back past Alfred’s. From There we will take the Tacoma water front towards Point Defiance Park and end up at Frank’s house for the after ride BBQ.

I will provide Dogs, Buns, Condiments, Fixings, Baked Beans, Soft Drinks, Water and some cold cans of PBR.
All you will need to bring is whatever Alcohol you would prefer to drink.
The house is close to Safeway, Walgreen’s and a Liquor store. And for our friends from the north:
The Ferry to Vashon & on to Seattle is just about a mile from the house.
Any and All Scooters are welcome.

If you can’t make the ride but would like to join in later we should be pulling into Franks for the BBQ at around 4:30 or 5:00”
