Where: Speed-E Mart, 1115 S 19th St, Tacoma, WA 98405
Yes, it’s that time of year for Shauns’ Rubbish Ride. Why is it Rubbish? Because there’s not much riding. This year we are going to sample some delicacies from a convenience store hot box, some delectable treats from a local Taco Truck and replenish our palates with desert at a higher end establishment. Be brave. The initial meet will be at the Speed-E mart on the corner of 19th and MLK in the shadow of Saint Joes which boasts an impressive selection of hot box morsels. You can even wash these down with airplane bottles of Barefoot Chardonnay, maybe some 20/20 or grab that Olde 800 from the back of the cabinet… Once our palates have been assailed we’ll navigate a circuitous route to Rico’s Taco Truck to sample their Taco delights. Finally, we’ll adjourn to Coopers to re-energize our taste buds with refined desert whether that be cocktails or cake..!!

The tour will meander up towards Brown Point where a pit stop for adult refreshments will be entertained. There will be a return flight back into town via Milton. This is a good opportunity to identify those mysterious ailments your scoots have adopted over the winter while secluded in dark dusty storage….

Meet: Rock the Dock, 535 Dock St #118, Tacoma, WA 98402
As the title suggests, this will be rubbish. Due to the usual unpredictable and inhospitable nature of January, there will probably only be an hour, if that, of riding navigating the lesser traveled byways of Tacoma ending at a suitable stop for adult Pop. This is a rare 50 cc friendly excursion. If you don’t want to ride but would like to gather at the endpoint, contact me privately for the location…
