Polar Bear Ride

Ride departs from Bob Evans (or where Bob Evans used to be -- at the Milestone Shopping Center near Applebe's in Germantown.) Please join us for our annual Polar Bear ride. Our destination will be the Old Town Restaurant in Mount Airy Maryland. Suffice it to say we will take the long way there via back roads unless it's just too cold out in which case we may take a more direct route. Those MCHOG members not up for a cool, crisp ride to start off the new year can simply meet us at the restaurant around noon. See you then! Length of ride: 40 total miles, 0 highway. 1 stop is planned. (JW)

Great Northern Ride

See the information sheet for MC HOG's Great Northern Ride, a 9 day trip to Maine and Canada. The group leaves Saturday May 26 (Memorial Day weekend) and returns 9 days later on Sunday June 3, 2018.

A passport is required for each person on this ride. See instructions in the attached flier about hotel arrangements. Riders must call each of the hotels on the attached itinerary and reserve a room. All the room blocks are under MCHOG. The room blocks are only set for 14 rooms so don't wait.

Besides great riding, great laughs, and good times, here are some of the sites we will see on this trip: ride through the Silver Lake Wilderness of New York State, cross Lake Champlain on our bikes via a scenic 30 minute ferry, tour the Ben & Jerry's factory in Vermont, Ride up (and down) Mt Washington in New Hampshire, visit Bar Harbor, Maine, take a whale watching boat cruise, ride through the beautiful Acadia National Park, If you feel like rising early -- be the first person in the USA to see the sun rise by riding up Cadillac Mountain, experience Canadian border agents, tour Campebello -- the childhood vacation home of Franklin D. Roosevelt (the gardens will blow you away), hop onto two ferries and two islands as we make our way to Harley-Davidson of Saint John, visit beautiful Prince Edward Island and take a tour of some of their historic lighthouses, experience American border agents, shop at the multi-building, 24-hour a day flagship store of LL Bean and take a picture in front of the giant boot. Plus lobsters and seafood and scenic riding and jokes and laughter and pictures and Harleys.

Any questions about this ride can be directed to John at trekkiejohn@gmail.com Giddy up! Ride length: thousands of miles on both interstates and back roads. (JH)

MDAMRA Ride to Harley's 115th National Rally in Milwaukee

See the information sheet for information about the Maryland/Delaware American Motorcycle Riders Association (MDAMRA) ride to Milwakee to participate in the 115th Harley-Davidson National Motorcycle Rally.

This 8-day ride will completely circle Lake Michigan. Leaving on Monday, August 27, 2018, the trip will take you through Michigan, across the Mackinac Strait over the infamous Mackinac Bridge (longest suspension span in the U.S.), along scenic US-2 in Michigan's upper Peninsula, south into Wisconsin, arriving in Milwaukee on Wednesday.

Three days at the National Rally will give plenty of time for sightseeing and Rally activities before heading out on Sunday to complete the Lake Michigan loop around Chicago and returning home on Monday, September 3, Labor Day.

Instructions for hotels and the ride route are provided in the attached flier. All riders must make their own hotel arrangements.

Register for the National Rally directly and get more information from this Harley- Davidson website.

This is an aggressive ride that will cover over 2,000 miles and will involve lengthy interstate highway riding. It is most appropriate for experienced riders.

This is not an MCHOG ride. It is being led by HOG road captains from other MD/DE chapters.
