Other Rides: Charity, Vintage, Fun!

Thought we’d open up a page for other ride opportunities!

2018 Cookies Remembrance Ride, May 27th

In memory of our fallen friend Dale “Cookie” Cooke, who loved everything with wheels, especially off road racing and adventure bikes. Cookie was tragically hit by a vehicle while road cycling on Memorial Day 2017. We are having a remembrance ride to benefit The Kurt Caselli Foundation and The Nicky Hayden Memorial Fund. 100% of all proceeds will be used for the charities.

The format will be a route sheet given out for the donation of $25. Don’t forget your route sheet holders or clear tank bag tops.

The route will be a self guided ride and consist of some of Cookie’s favorite paved and gravel roads covering the Blue Ridge Mountains in northwest North Carolina. There will be great roads, good friends new and old, scenic stops for photos, with food and gas stops listed for your purchase during the ride. The last stop on the route sheet will be an after ride party/hang out (BYOB if you wish).
