2017 Dog Days of Summer, Staunton Va.
« on: January 07, 2017, 04:09:53 pm »
Ok folks we've got Dog Days 2017 on the schedule.

http://www.cog-online.org/clubportal/EventDisplayNew.cfm?clubID=1328&EventID=240563&mo=7&tDate=%7Bd%20%272017%2D07%2D07%27%7D

As I've said in the past Staunton is a great location to base out of. Great riding in every direction and tons of things to do in town when the ride is over. This is also a great venue to bring a non riding or limited riding spouse. There's lots to keep you busy when not on the bike and the Pool at the motel is pretty nice too!

I'll be posting some new points of interest in the coming weeks.
BOOK THOSE ROOMS!

A little taste testing after the Bike is parked will be nice!
Most of these are in town, walking distance from the Motel.

Rella's Roadside Cafe is a nice 3-4 hour ride from the HoJo but unfortunately Rella chose to permanently close the cafe last summer.  There will not be any more pie.

I have this one on my calendar and plan on being there.

SE COG has scheduled a rally the same weekend, but the riding around Staunton is great, not that the riding around WNC isn't.  I just need a change of roads for a while and this will certainly do it.

This will be my 5th DD rally and I am looking forward to it.

As a side note, I am attending an ADVrider rally at Boyer Station the 23rd of this month, that will bring back some DD rally memories
