A Sea-side Scoot?

I know this seems out of left field, but I’m trying to get some scooter lovers together for a fun ride while the weather’s still nice in Massachusetts, so on the off off chance anyone who fits the bill should stumble upon this page I’ve posted the details below!

From Boston Scoots Meetup Group

Hey everyone, I took a great ride a couple of weekends ago from Marblehead (where I live) to Gloucester, and figured the more the merrier and, heck, I’d love the company! As it turns out Mad Maps (who I am not affiliated with at all, I just really like their iPhone app…yeah I shelled out the 99cents, because I’m a baller like that) has a whole “Nautical Gloucester” Loop that starts and ends in Boston.

You can check it out for free here: Mad Maps- Boston: Get Outta Town

The whole loop is 111 miles, and I made some revisions to stick to as many back roads as possible, but I thought it could serve as a starting point for figuring something fun out! Also, it would be easy for people (such as myself) to join up along the way if we played our cards right.


Anyway, hit me up with ideas, questions, comments, snide remarks- whatever! Happy trails everyone!




Not that it makes me any less sketchy, but on various motorcycle forums I’m often accused of being an old man (which, if true, I am unaware of) so here are some pics since I went with my favorite photo from Spanner’s Lambretta book for my icon:

On my beloved Dakar- sold to a home with a less worried mother than mine own!


I have used their maps too. I enjoyed the route it took me to(scenic spots, good restraunts, places to go…)and it was really time-saving for me to plan the trip. I loved it.

Me too! Especially when I’m on two-wheels I always like to have a game plan ahead of time (I don’t have a lot of focus to spare on staring at GPS etc.), and I’m digging Mad Maps big time. I just went out to Montana and, unsurprisingly, their maps out there were rocking as well!

I use MadMaps too. They are currently doing this holiday promotion for 25% off for all the paper maps. You might have got their email too, but just want to make sure you know it and share it with other ppl. You can use the code XMAS2011 to get the discount.
