Apparently, the Ottawa Curd Vintage Scooter Rally is not to be missed… CURD? Yep. You Heard. CURD. So I thought, what’s that all about, must be an acronym for something. Canadian Urban Riders Day or something. Nope. It stands for CURD. The squeaky cheese stuff. Now I’m partial to a spot of cheese myself… and Curd is the key ingredient in Poutine …a French Canadian dish made from french fries, gravy and cheese curd. Sounds like perfect rally fodder.
There will be Poutine a plenty, drinks, camping, games, friendship and some great group rides.
One of the movers and shakers, and key sponsors of the CURD Rally is Corey Fraser, one of my readers who puts me right when my limited knowledge lets me down. He’s owned and ridden Lambrettas (and those other scooters …the ones starting with V) for over 25 years, and runs Scooter Fix, providing a full restoration and repair service out of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Here’s their Facebook page. Corey is also rebuilding the raffle prize… a 1964 LI150.
Oh, and if you go… send me some pics and a report… I’ll stick it on the blog!
