Video Highlights – Double Ferry Ride with 179

If you missed the double ferry ride with 179 this past weekend, you missed a good one.  200+ miles of scenic country roads in two different states punctuated by crossings of the Ohio river on two different ferry boats.  While it’s tough to compress all that into a short video highlight, we tried.  Enjoy!

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 – November 3, 2013

Hey Cruisers,

After rescheduling once and then the reschedule getting cancelled for rain, we’re going to try one more time for the Covered Bridge Ride.  Sunday November 3, 2013, weather (and temperature ) permitting, join us as we tour the covered bridges of Preble and Montgomery County.   Hopefully we’ll still have some Fall color to enjoy.  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 1000.   Feel free to join us for an option breakfast there about 0900.  We look forward to seeing you.   RSVPs appreciated!


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

Dinner Ride – Main Street Station – Cedarville

Cruisers, don’t forget, as long as the weather holds we’ll be having a dinner ride this evening (May 15, 2013) to Main Street Station in Cedarville.

Starting point is the Speedway in front of WalMart in Franklin on SR73 just west of I-75.  Note that this is just west of the Frisch’s that we often start from.  Kickstands up about 5:45pm.

Hope to see you there!


AVTT Escort – May 8, 2013
