Updated list of cars for Spring Brake, which is set for Thursday, May 16, at Bear Mountain State Park

“Meteorological spring” showed up March 1st with the vernal equinox, the traditional seasonal marker, coming March 20th. The passage of these milestones means the approach of IMPA’s annual event in the Hudson Valley. The time is near for IMPA to return to the cliffs above the Hudson River for its Spring Brake at Bear Mountain State Park.

Thursday, May 16th will find us some 46.5 miles north and west of our usual monthly meeting spot for a day of on-the-road sampling of the newest and “greenest” vehicles.

BMW has added something unique to the model mix – a C600S scooter. BMW requests members intending to sample the scooter to bring with them a motorcycle license as well as proper helmet, jacket and gloves

This year’s program will (again) be $55 for a day of driving and eating (coffee upon arrival, lunch at noon).

As in the past, the simple schedule is:

8 a.m. – coffee
9 a.m. – drive begins
Noon – lunch
4 p.m. – event concludes

Location: Bear Mountain State Park – meet in the parking lot between the ice-skating rink and the merry-go-round. (GPS users: Seven Lakes Drive, Bear Mountain, New York).
