Ride Coordinator Update – April – Don Shore

letsrideWell Spring has finally sprung, and with it comes a new riding season.

Hopefully you have all had a chance to look over our 2015 calendar with all the riding opportunities we have planned.

Notice I called the rides “opportunities” ? That’s because the rides we have scheduled are opportunities for you to get out, join some like minded people, let the fresh air smack you in the face and ride.

The calendar only represents what has been planned ahead of time, there are still a lot of weekends in between what’s been scheduled, so we hope to have some impromptu riding opportunities put together at the last minute, so be sure to check your emails, Facebook, and Z2’s website for information regarding them. Also, if you have a suggestion for a last minute ride, let us know and we’ll get the word out. I don’t want anyone to miss an opportunity to ride.

Coming up this month our first opportunity to ride will be after our Chapter meeting on April 12th, this of course will be highly dependent on the weather so if the weather is decent, we will be taking a short ride north to Bangs Lake in Wauconda to a place called Lindys Landing.

Also, don’t forget Billy’s biker workshop on April 25th.

Coming up in May we have an after Chapter ride opportunity to the Volo Auto Museum on Sunday May 3rd. On Saturday May 9th we have our first day ride opportunity where we will be heading out to Matthiessen State Park, unfortunately we will not be having lunch at Hanks as it says on the calendar, because Hanks is not open for lunch, they open at 4:00pm for dinner only so an alternative will be selected.

Remember to sign up in the book at the monthly meetings so we have an idea of how many of you will be attending the rides.

Don’t forget to sign up and reserve your hotel rooms for our adventure rides.

The first adventure ride is July 17-19, and the destination is Indiana where we will be seeing and visiting at least a dozen covered bridges.

Next is our Wisconsin Adventure ride to Hillsboro,Wisconsin, the dates are September 12-19

The earlier you sign up and reserve the hotel for our adventure rides the better.
