Just like-minded friends gathering to ride. MSTA membership is not required. Contact the listed coordinator with questions.

Listing is currently being updated for 2017 as dates are confirmed.  If a listing still shows 2016, the 2017 date has not been confirmed.

We have protected the price($99) for March 9th in the event that anyone from out of the area would like to arrive on Thursday for a good night’s sleep and an early start the next morning on Friday, the 10th.
