Blessing of the Bikes 2014


I’ve discovered that I will in fact be able to lead a ride to this year’s Blessing of the Bikes coming up this Sunday May 18th.  Sorry for the late notice, but I’ve just learned that I have the day open and so far we’ve had no other volunteers to lead rides.

We’ll be meeting at Cracker Barrel on SR122 at I75 in Middletown.  Kickstands up for a ride to the event at 0930.   Join us for an optional pre-ride breakfast at about 0830 if you’re so inclined.  We’ll be taking some beautiful country roads to get to Welcome Stadium for the event, probably arriving between 1030 and 1100.   The event officially begins at 1000 and the actual blessing is at 1300.

If you’ve never been, it’s a fun event, even if you’re not of the faith.  They have food, vendors, bike show, live music and riding demonstrations and benefits a couple of great organizations.  Admission is $3 single/$5 couple.  Bring your camera!  Details on the event can be found at:

RSVPs appreciated so we know who to expect.  Hope to see you Sunday


Covered Bridges – July 27, 2013

Hey Cruisers,

Steve and Dee’s ride for July has been moved to Saturday July 27, 2013.  Join us as we tour the covered bridges of Preble and Montgomery County.   We’ll stop at several for pictures and exploration and we’ll actually have lunch inside one!  Plan to pack a lunch, or grab something when we stop in Lewisburg.

Kickstands up from Cracker Barrel on State Route 122 at I-75 at 0930.   Feel free to join us for an option breakfast there about 0830.  We look forward to seeing you.   RSVPs appreciated!


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

Ride to Waldo – April 6, 2013


If you missed it, you missed a great ride.   Riders from 044 met up with riders from 179 in Mechanicsburg and finished the ride together into Waldo Ohio for some fried bologna sandwiches at the awesome G&R Tavern.  We totaled 7 bikes and 9 riders.   There’s some images from the ride below.  You can also find some on 179’s Facebook page.
