You should come to Madison for the ride.

Randy has become the defacto/gracious host and has always been supportive of local mopeds (with pedals) and scoots. First 1000 participants get numbers. I have nothing to do with the planning but would like to see a big turnout. Its a short ride for the actual record but I am sure there will be more after that. By word of mouth there is are a couple vintage scoot crews coming (one supposedly in costume?) and randy muttered something about bands... I dunno I was busy gawking at the old lambrettas in the shop.

Heres the description from the face book group:

We are organizing an event to get into the Guinness Book of World Records! The current record for longest parade of mopeds is 674 riders. UW Madison can easily beat this number as we have the highest mopeds per capita in the world! We are going to blow them away in magnitude and length (two aspects). We plan to start at Scooter Therapy, Inc, 12 N Few Street. After everyone gets a number to pin on their shirt back, we proceed East on East Johnson Street to First, right on First to East Washington. There we pull into the Fiore Shopping Center parking lot, regroup, then proceed West on East Washington towards the Capitol for the filming. After passing the film people, we will head back to Scooter Therapy for the bike show results, and hopefully give away a new Genuine Roughhouse moped to a lucky participant. Our sponsors will be at the event along with media coverage and approval from Guinness Book of World Records.

Randy Knudson of Scooter Therapy has confirmed that if the UW Madison students break the world record, there will be a raffle for a FREE NEW MOPED from Scooter Therapy. You have take part in the record breaking ride in order to be eligible for the raffle.

Invite EVERYBODY you know to this event and make it HUGE!

Costumes and decorations are encouraged.

If you need any information please feel free to call 1 800 411 1543 from 9-6 m-f and 10-3 on Saturday.

We would like to get started numbering and such early, so there is no big rush toward start time. This is a first time attempt for us to try this, and we do not really know what kind of turnout will happen. But rain or shine it goes on. There will be eight classes for the People's Choice Bike Awards. Eight Trophies, Best of Show, most miles Traveled, Duct Tape and Zip Tie special, Most Radical, And more. Lots of giveaway items.

Scooter Therapy Inc.

and the Genuine Scooter Company hope you can attend and have a great time helping us secure the World Record!
