WROAR 5 - June 14th 2009

What a great event! Our new event location at Morningside Park was delightful, with a good parking lot, and grassy green space with shade trees. The weather was perfect and the WROAR riders enjoyed a great day. Our new poker run format offered riders more of a challenge than our previous 'follow-the-leader' group rides, and the route included some very good riding roads, and avoided a lot of the road resurfacing work going on in the area.

WROAR Riders June 14, 2009

Riders registered starting at 10 am, and enjoyed a morning coffee and a muffin while reviewing the poker run map with their riding chums. Most riders headed out before 12, to be sure to finish the ride route in the allotted time and turn in their poker hands. Some riders who were new to the poker run idea rode in groups with riders who had some experience with the intricacies of the poker rally format. Some riders who registered late found they didn't have time to complete the route, but instead decided to return to the park and enjoy lunch and look at the bikes.

Dogs ride motorcycles too!
We will have to reword our ride invitation. We have said in the past that the WROAR Ride is open to 'all genders' - men, women and trans-gendered individuals and that we welcome motorcycles, scooters and trikes.
We didn't think to extend our invitation to include dogs, but we regret that oversight on our part, and after meeting some of the wonderful dogs who attended this year - we'll have to find a way to make our invitation more inclusive in the future.

Note to visitors: this new 'low-wattage' version of the WROAR Ride website requires less electricity to view and generates less light pollution. A small savings that adds up with 3,000 to 4,000 visitors per month. Our way to rebalance the karma of our carbon footprint as internal combustion enthusiasts.
