SBSC August 2022 Ride - SoCal SLOW RIDE - 08/06/2022

The SBSC had its annual SoCAL SLOW RIDE for its August ride. It was a nice, slow ride around Palos Verdes ending up at Brouwerij West in San Pedro.

SBSC July 2022 Ride - Old World Village - 07/09/2022

For the SBSC July 2022 Ride (07/09/2022), we took a nice cruise out to Huntington Beach, ending at the Old World Village. The Old World Village is kind of Orange County's version of Alpine Village in Torrance, but it's in far better shape than Alpine is these days. It's a German-inspired "town" with shops and restaurants. They have a great German Deli, as well as a great Beer Garden, with good food and great beer. There is even a Disney-Small World-like Matterhorn, lol. It was a fun ride and a nice discovery for most folks on that Saturday. We will go here again!

SBSC June 2022 Ride - Seal Beach - 06/04/2022

For the SBSC June 2022 ride, we decided to take a nice ride through Long Beach, Belmont Shore, and Seal Beach, ending up at another of our favorite watering holes,  Hennessey's Tavern in Seal Beach. It was a great, California coastal ride, and the food and drinks at Hennessey's sure hit the spot.

SBSC May 2022 Ride - Hermosa Beach Museum - 05/07/2022

For the May 2002 SBSC ride (05/07/2022), we rode into Palos Verdes and through the Beach Cities to get to our ride destination which was the little-known Hermosa Beach Museum. Located around PCH and Pier Ave, the museum is housed in the old Hermosa Beach Gym, where they actually shot the gym scenes for the 1976 horror flick, "Carrie".

There were so many cool things to see at the museum: old surfboards and skateboards, artifacts from the old Hermosa Beach Biltmore Hotel, the Hermosa Beach Theater, actual, old Lifeguard Towers, and a ton of memorabilia from the city's rich music history, among other items from the history of this great seaside town.

After the Museum tour, we rode to and ate at one of the South Bay's newest pizza bar restaurants, "Pizza Coast Hiway" in Redondo Beach. It got a thumbs up from the scooter club - great food and drinks!
