2020 – the Year of NO More Excuses!
Get out and Ride!

We are going to ride everywhere plus 2 more places!

We would like to invite you and your family to join us for some fun and motorcycle riding. The Chapter has its monthly Social on the 4th Thursday of each month, except for November and December. We have weekly Thursday night dinner rides (from April through the beginning of October, weather permitting) which depart from the standard ride point (except when we have our monthly social).
Check out our events page for all of the details on the rides and other events, including our Saturday breakfasts.
