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

Ride departs from Williamsport Harley-Davidson, 10210 Governor Lane Boulevard, Williamsport, MD. Sidestands up at 10:30.

See the information sheet for details 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, as well as riding over the 8,614-foot long "Mighty Mac" (Macinac) bridge, some 295 feet high at its peak. This ride is most appropriate for experienced, fearless riders. Daily distances vary, but average 350-miles/day and even more on the ride back to Maryland.

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