Additional Info

Friendly Reminders

Camping on-site is encouraged. Bring a tent, folding camp chairs, flashlight, sleeping bag, teddy bear, etc.
This is a rain or shine event, check the weather before hand and prepare accordingly. If it’s gonna rain, it’s gonna RAIN. It’s Ithaca.
Arrive at the meet and greet gassed up.
Last year some jerk in a truck tried to run one of us off the road. Not everyone driving around is chill so ride smart and pay attention.
There will be plenty of beer.

Moped Specific Notes

There are hills everywhere. Be warned.
Slow scooters are welcome to ride with the mopeds.
Print out the map (when available) and bring it with you. We’re a tiny group, and some people will have fast mopeds, others slow... inevitably people will get separated. Ithaca is a small town and easy to find your way around. Bring the map.
If you have any questions contact us.

Rally Rules

Please don’t burn down Anthony’s house.
