We're Planning for 2022 NOW!!
Where is a fun place for our HOG Chapter to ride to in 2022? What do you want to do once we're there?

For Overnight Rides, we've had some suggestions already:
  • Port Clinton/Put-in-Bay/Sandusky, OH – Ohio Bike Week typically takes place in Sandusky at the end of May, and the AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days is in Lexington, OH (1hr away) at the end of July.
  • Plymouth, MA – See where our country began! Plus there’s Province, Boston and Providence all close by – always lots to see and do.
  • Hunter Mountain in the Catskill Mountains – Take a ride on North America’s longest & highest zipline, Catskill Mountain Railroad, the Zoom Flume and the Hawks Nest Highway all close by.
  • Elkins, WV – See what inspired music legend John Denver’s song “Country Roads”! Right in the middle of the Appalachian Mountains with lots of scenic riding to do. Then come back to town to rest & refuel so you can repeat the next day.

We're also looking for Day Ride ideas- destinations that are close by with a group activity we can join in on. Some ideas that we've gotten from our past rides and Regional Officer Connection training:
  • Saddle & Paddle: We ride to Whitewater Challengers and go rafting down the Black River. Or we ride up to Alexandria Bay to do an Uncle Sam Boat Tour
  • Batter Up: Ride over to Cooperstown for the Baseball Hall of Fame
  • Hook It Up: We'll make plans to charter a boat for a fishing adventure on the waters of Lake Ontario
  • Saddle 2 Saddle Up: Riding up into the Adirondacks to ride horses into the beautiful mountain scenery.
  • Path Through History: A battlefield site from the War of 1812 is right in our backyard! We'll take the long way round to get there, then tour the grounds and enjoy lunch afterwards.
  • Bikes & Brew: Take in a Sunday Brunch at any number of local diners and cafes in our area. Because, as our own chapter member Gabi (of Brammoto) said, "Cause nothing mixes like caffeine and gasoline!"

Share your ride ideas now through the end of September in our WhatsApp group, or email them to Dawn@FXHarley.com. We'll put everything into a survey, and that way we can start making plans!
