Ice Cream Ride to The Igloo

I look forward to Wednesday night rides with friends. We ride for ice cream! We leave at 6:00 pm from the North Warren Playground parking lot, which is located not far from our house. We usually get home before dark.   This blog post recounts an ice cream ride from 2 weeks ago.

On September 3rd we rode to The Igloo in Frewsburg NY. We had a large riding group, 12 or 13 motorcycles and 21 (I think) riders plus Paul’s dog Beezer.

Yes!  Dogs are welcome on our ice cream rides!

The evening ride was not without adventure. Our first stop was in Russell PA, only a short distance from our departure point. John and Renate separated from the group.

We stopped in Russell to find out what happened to John and Renate.

We made another stop in Russell, just down the road from this stop, but I didn’t think to take a picture there.  John and Renate’s whereabouts were discovered, and we rode to where their motorcycle was disabled.   John and Renate’s motorcycle was stalling out on them. They coasted most of the way to where we found them.  It is good that we have two mechanics in our group. Shawn and Paul figured out it was a vapor lock from too much gas that was causing the stalling. The vapor lock eventually worked its way out.

All of us made it to The Igloo and ate ice cream, and we all made it back home safe and sound.

Ice Cream Ride to Frewsburg

I look forward to Wednesday night rides with friends. We ride for ice cream! We leave at 6:00 pm from the North Warren Playground parking lot, which is located not far from our house. We usually get home before dark.   On August 27th we rode to The Igloo in Frewsburg NY.  It was our largest group yet to ride for ice cream.  There were 13 motorcycles and 23 riders!

I captured photographs of a couple of the riders, as they arrived at the parking lot.

This is Sam, Yvonne and Savanna.
I LOVE the license plates on their motorcycles!

Here are all our motorcycles, parked just below The Igloo.

Here we are; motorcycles are behind us.

 

Located on Oak Hill Road in the Town of Carroll just outside of Frewsburg is Erlandson Overview Park.  We stopped at this park on our way home.

Erlandson Overview Park

Sitting at an elevation of approximately 2,040 feet, this 76-acre site offers a spectacular view of the surrounding hillsides and of Chautauqua Lake if you happen to visit on a clear day (and if trees do not block your view).  It was the first time Bob and I visited this park. I would like to return one day soon, preferably when the leaves are changing color.

Wednesday Night Ride to The Igloo

Bob and I went for a motorcycle ride this evening with friends.

We met at the North Warren Presbyterian Church parking lot.
Seven bikes and 12 people went on tonight’s ride.

 

We rode to The Igloo in Frewsburg, NY.

The Igloo

We actually passed by The Igloo early in our ride, as we planned to ride to Randolph NY to an ice cream stand that we had rode to a few weeks ago.  A bridge was out, and following the detour would have made us return home in the dark.

Two ice cream cones, Faye?

Did you know that today marks 110 years since the ice cream cone was invented?  On July 23, 1904, according to some accounts, Charles E. Menches conceived the idea of filling a pastry cone with two scoops of ice-cream and thereby invented the ice-cream cone. 

Bob prepared a map showing this evening’s ride route.

 

On our way home from The Igloo

It was another wonderful Wednesday night spent in the company of friends.
