WRAPUP: After an early morning meetup with about 40 cars, we took off in groups of six to head out on some northerly fun roads. There were a couple of icy suprises along the way to get our heart rates up, but it was mostly a casual ride.
We took over the parking lot at the Jelly Belly factory, and were joined by an additional 20 cars from the Milwaukee club. After a factory tour, some hanging out and a group photo, we headed out on the second leg of the trip. A twisty low speed drive along the lakeshore allowed us to take in the sights and show off to the local residents.
Overall a great drive, great weather, and great MINI friends. A perfect way to start off the driving season!! Huge thanks to Dustin for all the planning and organizing.
If anyone has links to event photos, send the link to me and I will add them here.
We have secured the mid drive FREE “train” tour.. bring the kids!!
