Virginia Rally?

Reston, Virginia here. With as many Wingers in the Commonwealth has there been any recent thinking about a yearly Virginia Rally?

I'm located in Palmyra, just outside of Charlottesville.

It would be nice to arrange for some kind of get together. :thumbup:

Mark,

I am also still here! Yes we need to have a get together. Perhaps a lunch somewhere! Perhaps the first Saturday in December( the 1st). Now to pick a place say about 1230 or 1300(100PM). Just throwing out ideas!

Not sure if we should look north or west of Richmond, just thinking!

You know me - I'll ride anywhere food is involved. I'll just say Sundays work best for me, but you guys plan for yourselves. Byron

Hello Neighbors,

I tried hard to get people to come out last May but noone came except my 2 best friends and riding buddies who both ride 1800's. We had a great time riding in the mountians that weekend and were disappointed that there was not more interest from anyone. It was a picture perfect spring weekend too. There were many enthusiastic responses early on but as the date got closer noone else was in. I am from Chesapeake and mainly ride with one friend who lives here and the other who lives in Manassas. We meet up and adventure out to the mountains often and also ride in every direction for more local rides. I used to live in Richmond and also spent 5 years in good ole Goochland. Man I miss living there. I would love to meet and ride with others in Virginia. With winter upon us maybe now is the time to organize a Virginia rally of some sort for this year. I always thought it would be a great time as we have so many riders out there within a relatively small radius and of course some of the best riding anywhere. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!...Take care, Joe

Hopefully, I'll be retiring in June so that should leave me more free time to get some riding in. I'm a cold weather rider as I never had much tolerance for the heat. As long as the roads are clear and dry, I ride through the winter when time allows.

I am with you there as far as the heat goes. I would much rather ride during the colder weather than in the humidity of Virginia summers. We always try to take a few long weekend rides to the mountains in the spring and then take a week trip somewhere in the fall sandwiched around another weekend trip or more if possible. I always try to wear protective clothing and it feels good to put it on in colder weather. When it is hot my bike often sits in the cool garage. I am up for a ride anytime as long as it is not snowing. I am working my way towards retirement and see the light at the end ot the tunnel though I have a couple years left. Congrats on yours. That must be a great feeling.

Mark,

Any ideas on a place for lunch on the 1st of December? I am a little limited on time as I have to be in the west end of Richmond by 1730hrs and the rest of the evening is tied up with watchihng UR play Wake Forest in basketball. The wife and I will probably have to travel by car to make it.

I have been thinking for some time about a get together for a few days near Bedford, VA in the spring. We could have the DDMemorial as a sort of centerpiece and then some rides from the area. I guessing maybe early April and perhaps a few days to enjoy the rides in the area. Does anyone know offhand if the Peaks of Otter restaurant will be serving lunch then? Last I heard the vendor lost his license. Right now this is just an idea being thrown out! I really am not looking to schedule this during schools spring break as they vary by locality. Anybody interested?

I tried hard to pull it off since it was close by for me. But that's hay season for me. And you know the old saying - about making hay while the sun shines!!

Well as far as I know there will be no meet to eat tomorrow, December 1st as no one really suggested a place to meet. And since no one named a location I now have been presented with an alternative activity that will get my attention.

Sorry we could not put something together!

I will be watching for future plans,
harvey
