I'm fairly new to this forum. It would be great to see more local Ebike meets and/or get togethers. Please do keep posting them!
Thanks

Welcome to ES.

The success of this thread depends on folks posting here. I post what I know about, but I don't see everything.

It works much better if everyone helps out and posts what they know of or find.

Thanks,

Make sure to plug any West Coast Event in this thread, many folks have set to get email from it. Start a thread in Events for your event, and then drop a link here to trigger email to folks who have set up for that. Otherwise folks may not see your Event as it gets buried in all the regular ES traffic quickly.

It doesn't have to be your event, anything you find of interest to West Coast folks can be listed here.

Ride and Charge Safe!

@Neal,
Is there a link to a well defined rule page?

Are e-bikes going to ignored at the awards ceremony?

Do i have to buy a bullshit track membership for a one time special event?

Anyway, thanks for keeping us posted.

Nah, never in his life did Einstein ever open a poster in a new tab. That's true of most Noble Prize winners.

Can't say I've ever seen the color of confusion. Is that one of the 50 shades of Grey?

Anybody else have an alternative to the elbow to elbow racing on kart tracks with other sometimes evenly matched opponents?

No? Anybody?

Dauntless, have you contributed anything to the board that doesn't include pompous nose-thumbing? This time your post came from so far up your own ass that it's content and meaning cannot be deciphered. The word troll comes to mind every time you post something.

Thanks for posting the event Neal, keeping the PAYING Sponsors happy keeps this rare racing series going, can't fault you for listening to your SUPPORTING Sponsors.
