Happy New Year to everyone! We know that you have been patiently waiting for news about the 2019 Mad Bastard Scooter Rally, so we are writing this post with some news.
first, the good
We are working diligently behind the scenes with the hopes of opening registration on March 1st. We are so excited to bring the MBSR to the city of Peterborough and explore this part of Ontario on two wheels. In the coming weeks we will release further information about our hotel HQ, details about the weekend itself and pricing. So stay tuned!
Although we love this rally with our entire heart and soul (and we know that you do too), we are sad to announce that this will be the last Mad Bastard Scooter Rally. As we/BECO Motors are no longer the importer for KYMCO in Canada, KYMCO is no longer the title sponsor of this event. The cost of the rally and lack of sponsorship makes it an incredibly costly event and much (scratch that) ALL of the time that we put into the event is completely voluntary. Putting together this rally is a two year affair, and though it is a labour of love, we have made the difficult decision to forego planning any future rallies at this time.
That's you! (kidding). We couldn't be more excited about MBSR2019 and are really hoping to see everyone come out for one last hurrah. All of our heart and soul will go into planning this amazing weekend and we are counting on you bringing all of your amazing energy and enthusiasm to this event that is so close to all of our hearts.
So - start prepping those scooters, getting your teams together and planning your strategies (if you haven't already) because the Mad Bastard Scooter Rally 2019 countdown has officially begun.
