From Mazda Team Mid-Atlantic (http://www.mazdateam.org): It's time to start up the spring season with a Fun Run! Winter is finally over, time to clean off all the salt & sand from your cars, take off the snow tires, and get ready for some spirited driving through the twisties!!





Saturday, March 18th @ 3:30pm

Any significant chance of rain or wet roads will postpone the meet until the following Saturday (March 25th).



INFORMATION

The 'Fun Run' meets are a regular gathering of local MTMA members and prospective members who want to have a fun ride around the twisty backroads of Bucks County, PA. The cruise is about 40 miles long with plenty of twists, bends, hills, and curves. We'll be meeting up at the Park & Ride in Yardley, PA off of I-95 right on the NJ/PA border.



The cruise will start at 4:00pm sharp, and takes a little over an hour. Directions for the course will be given to anyone who needs them. All Mazda enthusiasts are welcome to attend.



RULES

1. Keep a safe distance from each other. If we are going too slow for you, then just deal with it for the time being. I'll give you a copy of the directions if you want to take the drive faster by yourself.



2. Strictly obey any 25 MPH speed limits. There are a couple of residential areas along the ride.



3. Use common sense at all times. No burnouts, 'attempts' at drifting, etc.



4. We will be taking things fairly fast, so be prepared for some 'spirited' driving. People that do not feel comfortable taking sharp turns higher than the posted recommended speed (not the speed limit, the speed posted on the yellow signs) will want to stay towards the back of the pack.



5. On straights and slight curves, for the most part we will stay fairly close to the speed limit (~5 - 10 mph over) to avoid attention from the police. However, there are some areas where we will temporarily 'kick it up a notch.'



6. If your car is significantly lower than stock you may want to think twice before going on the run. There are a lot of elevation changes, and people with really lowered cars have had some trouble. Use your own judgement when driving; I or MTMA accept no responsibility for any damages.



DIRECTIONS

The Park & Ride is located at the corner of Taylorsville Rd and Woodside Rd in Yardley, PA. You can enter that intersection into most online mapping services (Yahoo! Maps, Mapquest, Google Maps, etc.) to get turn-by-turn directions. Here are some general directions from the major highways in the area. Feel free to PM me with any questions you have about how to make it to the meet.



From NJ/North: Take I-95 into Pennsylvania. Take exit 51 (the very first exit in PA, right over the bridge) towards New Hope. The Park & Ride is on your right at the first light.



From NJ Turnpike: Take exit 7A to I-195 West. See directions from I-195.



From I-195: Take I-195 West to the end. Keep to the left, and I-195 West will turn into Route 29 North. Continue on Route 29 North past Trenton. Follow the signs and take the exit to I-95 South. Cross over the bridge, and take the first exit in PA (exit 51 towards New Hope, right over the bridge). The Park & Ride is on your right at the first light.



From PA/South: Take I-95 North towards New Jersey. Take exit 51 (the last exit in PA). Keep left at the fork, and turn left onto Taylorsville Road. The Park & Ride is on your right at the first light.



From Southern NJ: Take I-295 North to the end. I-295 will turn into I-95 South. See directions from NJ/North.
