DARKSIDE RIDE IN FALL 2019

WHEN— Thursday October 10th- Sunday October 13th.
WHERE—SOMERSET PA.
HOTEL—SURESTAY PLUS by BEST WESTERN

(814) 445-3996 RATE $72.15 per night (includes the taxes)

The hotel is newly renovated and under new management. Ask for the Darkside Ride-in group rate.


Amenities include a HOT breakfast, eggs, sausage etc.
Ample parking AND the parking on ground level is beneath the hotel and entirely open, so we can park our bikes out of the weather and meet there for the evening discussions.
Ruby Tuesday within a 2 minute walk. Lots of good restaurants close by as well.

Rides are entirely on your own and self-directed as usual.
The links below can help you choose what to see and where to ride.

Posting this early for your info. Maybe one of the admins will make this a sticky.
I followed Larry's advice and didn't have a poll for the week. Lots of activities happening in the area and the hotels fill up quickly.
links are included for the area for you to search. Flight 93 is about a half hour away and is a must see.


Hope to see you there!

Dave you missed a great ride. First we ran out of asphalt, then we ran out of gravel, then the big goonie stones, finally we only had dirt, but turned around before we ran out of that!

Jim, you forgot that my low fuel light had been on for a while also when we looked down what was quickly looking like a logging road heading down the mountain!!! It was all in a days fun ride!!!

Aw shucks. And I missed it. Only thing that would have made that better would have been rain.
