For the 2021 riding season, we, Chapter 485, will be scheduling rides, on a month-by-month basis, rather than trying to plan out the entire season! Annually planned rides will be scheduled as usual such as Hogs For Dogs, Megans Run, etc. Missed rides due to weather will not be rescheduled. This will allow for a more casual riding season rather than rushing to catch up on rides that were canceled for whatever reason.
New ride discussions included:

  • Keyser, Italian restaurant
  • New Martinsville
  • Saturday April 10 Elkins Smoke on the Water. Meet at the 50/92 split at 10:30am
