rose parade ride

My son and I were thinking about cruising the parade route on New Years Eve. I haven't done this since the 80's and thought it would be a cool way to have some family time and to try to stay out of trouble for the most part roll
I don't think they have any restrictions on doing so as long as being not a nuisance. But if you know differently please chime in.

I was thinking of parking around Rosemead and Foothill Blvd and riding down from there.

If anybody is down to do this let me know.

Re: rose parade ride

Hey Pat it has been awhile.

Sounds good, my son is 17 and he's going to see if any of his friends want to go.

For your youngest I have my intrikat that I can slam the seat and maybe put smaller bars on for him. Gearing would be easy for him also.

I was thinking of meeting at 9-10 and then head over to the route, but that's open.

Let me know, I'll PM you my number.

Cool.

If anybody is interested PM me and I'll give you my number.

I'll have to check with a couple places, one being the Sears parking lot and the other being by 300 the bowling alley to see if it's okay to park there.

I'll start on that tomorrow and see if I can get a hold of either of those places to see if it's okay.

Re: rose parade ride

Bump,

I tried getting a hold of the property management with no luck hmm
But on of the retailers said it shouldn't be a problem to just park and go from there.

Re: rose parade ride

Lets meet at 7:00 and roll out at 8:00 P.M. I'm sure there's going to be a lot of traffic.
meeting place will be;
Kabuki Japanese Restaurant
3539 E Foothill Blvd
Pasadena, California 91107

this is a large strip mall on the NorthWest corner of Rosemead and Foothill Blvds. I'll be as close to the street as possible in an older Burgandy Toyota Corolla with a bike rack on the back.

Pat,
let me know if you need a ride out to your truck.
I also have room for two peeps in my car if you need a ride to the parade ride.
