The Mosquito Fleet, located in Seattle, Washington is an official branch of the Moped Army. The gang was founded in 2002.

Moped Monday

For 8 years, every Monday of the year the Mosquito Fleet met at the Mars Bar/Cafe Venus. After the sudden closing of the Mars bar, they have been meeting at the Hurricane Cafe (2230 7th Ave). The meetings start at 8pm and are open to the public. Afterwards a group ride is led around town and leaves around 9:30pm. The First Monday of the month is the Official Moped Monday, and club business is discussed.

Blood Drive: A moped rally

The Mosquito Fleet holds a rally bi-annually entitled Blood Drive in Seattle, generally in July-August. Moped Army members and non-members come from around the country to participate.

Blood Drive 1-6 were held annually from 2003-2008. Blood Drive is now held bi-annually to alleviate the rally heavy Moped Army calender year. The Mosquito Fleet now alternates rally years with the Puddle Cutters, in Portland, Oregon. (I.E.: Seattle: 2010, 2012, 2014, Portland: 2011, 2013, 2015)

In 2005 there were appoximately 70 bikes on the ride to Vashon Island. The 2006 rally drew over 80 bikes to sunny Seattle, and the Mosquito Fleet was banned from riding on Bainbridge Island by the Bainbridge police department. That is, of course, officially unoffical. In 2007 over 100 mopeds were present and more than 250 miles were covered in 3 days. In 2008 we rode from Seattle to Camano Island and easily covered more than 200 miles. In 2010 approximately 100 riders were present from as far away as Japan and just under 200 miles were ridden. Blood Drive 8 took place on August 3rd-6th, 2012. Blood Drive 9 will be in 2014.

11 members of the Mosquito Fleet at Trick or Treat 2006 hosted by the COTL in San Francisco.
