Amerivespa World Days
Much like an alignment of the planets, the weekend just past saw two of the world’s biggest scooter gatherings happen on nearly opposite sides of the globe.
Amerivespa 2015, held this year in Indianapolis, was capped at 600 participants. Why? A lap around the world-famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Friday (photo above) was part of the program. On Saturday, Amerivespa participants happily thumbed their collective nose at Indiana’s recently-passed, so-called “religious freedom” law by participating in the Circle City Pride Parade. That’s why. 🙂
The winner of the Pride Parade scooter decorating contest was Donita Cunningham, representing the Memphis Kings SC, the host club for Amerivespa 2016.
Following the Speedway lap, riders headed for Indy’s Fountain Square neighborhood for the Friday evening party.
Meanwhile, Europe’s biggest Vespa bash, Vespa World Days, filled the streets of Biograd na Moru, Croatia, a town of 5000 overlooking the Adriatic Sea.
The biggest ride of the weekend happened Saturday, the group heading to Zadar. As you can see, the weather was wonderful.
Zadar is only about 30 km away from Biograd, but the road was filled with scooters.
In fact, it was a busy weekend for scooter enthusiasts just about everywhere. Hope you had fun!
