Saturday, May 28, 2011, was a day to remember for the forty-five Trikke riders who came together for the Last Saturday of the Month Ride in Long Beach and set a new attendance record for a group Trikke ride in Southern California.
The morning began with a Warm Up to the Carve Up, where riders honed their riding skills in a workshop run by Fred Welch, director of the Trikke Academy.
Next it was a 13-mile round-trip adventure along the scenic coast, the Pacific on one side, the urban beach town on the other.
Many who attended were participating in their first-ever group Trikke experience. Some drove more than a hour from elsewhere in Southern Cal just to ride with other Trikke riders.
Attendance was double that of the two previous major Trikke events in Long Beach.
