The riding season is finally underway and there are more events to choose from every week. We love hearing from other riders, so let us know where you are going and send us a picture or two when you get home.
- 45th Annual Great River Road Rally, May 17th-19th. Hosted by the Madison BMW Club and located in Soldiers Grove Wisconsin. This event takes place near the Lower Kickapoo Route and the Blackhawk Trail Route.
- Theilman Spring Trail Ride in Theilman, MN. This event is located near the Zumbro River Route.
- Big Bikes for Little Tikes, sponsored by 95.7 The Rock. This fund raiser is located in Onalaska, WI and is near Mindoro Cut Route and the Highway 16 Route.
- Team Power Center Open House, Janesville, WI. This event is located near the Pecatonica Route.
- Twin Cities Adventure Riders LLC – Stillwater – Taylor Falls – Stillwater Ride, Stillwater, MN. This ride is located near the St. Croix Route.
- Glacial Lakes Motorcycle Club Bonzai Rally, Ossian, IA (May 26th). This is a great club and a great event. The Bonzai rally is a day long scavenger hunt which requires some planning and strategy. Renee and I participated in this event a few years ago. We had a blast and we actually won our division! This event takes place near the Pikes Peak Route, and the Iowa Waterfall Route.
- Scrabble Run for Autism, Lodi, WI. (May 26th). The Scrabble run is a clever variation on a poker run. You pick up letter tiles instead of cards. At the end of the day you create words in specific categories. It sounds like a lot of fun and the proceeds go to Navigating Autism, Inc. This fund raiser takes place near the River Bend Route.
- Motoworks Chicago 4th Annual Galena Ride, Chestnut Mountain, Galena, IL. This is a featured event and we at Driftless Road Adventures will be in attendance. Look for us to lead paved rides while others will be leading dual sport rides. This event takes place near the Land of Lincoln Route.
- Hugellandschaft Adventure Ride, Blanding Landing Camp Ground, Blanding IL. This Dual Sport Ride, hosted by Terry G. and the Chicagoland Dual-Sport Riders, is taking place in conjunction with the Motoworks Chicago 4th Annual Galena Ride.
