:: Out of Hibernation! ::

the Met

the Met

Now that the warm weather is coming back to Southern NH, the scooters are starting to climb out of their winter-long slumber and returning to active duty!!

We here at Gate.City.Scoots got off to an awkward start last summer, and hopefully we can turn that around this season and gain more interest and have a chance to scoot with more interested people!!

If you would like to be involved with Gate.City.Scoots, send us an email at: and let us know your interest!

Here is hoping we all get a chance to take many rides in the coming months!!

The Nashua Telegraph has an article today about Scooter/Moped speed limits and safety on local roads:

Moped rider finds dead end in navigating city

NASHUA – Bob Lavoie commutes to his job at a Hudson supermarket via a motorized scooter that tops out at 30 miles per hour.

Because it has an engine of only 50 cubic centimeters – among other limitations, the state Department of Motor Vehicles classifies the vehicle as a moped even though it lacks bicycle-type pedals. The license plate, consequently, reads, “moped.”

Morning-commute drivers who queue up behind the thing on Lowell Road about 6 a.m. daily don’t care what it is. Some get so irked they honk their horns and give Lavoie the finger as they cross double yellow lines to pass him. . .

Group Image

Thanks to everyone that attended the first Gate City Scoots group ride. Allen, Erin and I all met at Greeley Park in Nashua at 12pm, and Dave, who sadly still has his scoot out of commission, followed behind us all the way to Milford and back! Dave’s a trooper!

The weather was gorgeous out and it was the perfect day for a nice ride. We’ll have to make the next ride longer, as the route I mapped out to Milford was very fast. Peterborough anyone??

Check out a few of the images from Saturday in the Flickr feed. I’ll try to get more up.

Thanks again those who made it. Lets try to double the number of people attending for the next one!
