Fall Covered Bridge Ride 2011 – October 16

Good Morning Cruisers,

The fall colors are out and I will be leading a ride to Preble County’s covered bridges this Sunday.    We’ll be meeting at the Frisch’s on State Route 73 just west of I-75.    Here’s a google maps link: http://g.co/maps/9e8j2

Kickstands up at 10:00 am.   Please be a few minutes early for a ride briefing.   I’ll probably be there earlier still for some breakfast.

RSVP’s are appreciated.

Please note, this is a bit of a “photographer’s special” ride.   We will be visiting all of the covered bridges in Preble County and and at least one in Montgomery County.    Plan to bring a sack lunch.   We will be stopping at two or more of the bridges for a break and photography.   This will depend some on the number of riders.  Parking is limited near some of the bridges.   If you don’t want to pack something from home, there is a Subway a little west of our starting point.  A sandwich with condiments on the side travels well in the saddlebags.    I estimate about a 120 mile run.  Not sure what time we’ll be back.  Depends on how long we spend at stops.

The route we’re taking doesn’t have much in the way of fuel or convenience.  Lots of country roads!  Please be sure you’re fueled and ready.  I’ll be pre-riding the route again this week, so if there are any updates on route or length, I’ll let everyone know.


PS, here’s one of the bridges we’ll be visiting:
