Thois past summer I went out and bought a scooter after seeing the TOm HAnks/Julia Roberts opus Larry Crowne. Since then I have discovered a whole sub-culture of scooterists. I have fun on the weekends riding around like a miniature motorcyclt gang, although the most people we have had on a ride has been around 8!
Here's some video of us going to Rutt's Hut for an annual ride from what I understand
For the uninitiated, Rutt's Hut is a place that's literally been around for 60 or 70 years, you know how bad hot dogs are for you right? Well this place DEEP FRIES them! But they are legendary in the NY/NJ area.
One of the highlights of my year was my ride through Egypt: www.crossegyptchallenge.com
We rode across the entire country, not only was it a fun ride, we also saw pretty much every touristic thing you would go to see in Egypt and we had unprecedented access to a lot of things many Egyptians and visitors don't get access to!
This trip so inspired me that in conjunction with the organizer there I am planning the www.crossnychallenge.com, which is a ride from NYC to Niagara Falls and back. I hope we can emulate the wonderful ride we did in Egypt only a few months ago. If anyone is interested in riding with us, please go to the website and fill out an application.
