2019 NE Spring Fling Rally !!
« on: September 10, 2018, 09:51:16 am »
2019 Northeast Area Spring Fling Rally
May 16 - 19, 2019

SAVE THE DATES - BOOK YOUR ROOMS BEFORE MARCH 1 TO GET DISCOUNTED ROOM RATE

Let’s kick off the 2019 riding season with your fellow COGger’s for what promises to be a fantastic season opener. Working off a suggestion from long time member Kevin Martin, Spring Fling 2019 returns to Matamoras PA after a 7 year hiatus.  The rally location is near the borders of PA, NY, NJ. This tri-state area location provides easy access to the Catskill Mountain, Delaware River Valley, and northern NJ riding.

We were able to negotiate a room rate that is only $9/night more than what we paid in 2012. The catch…  THE DISCOUNTED ROOM RATES ARE ONLY AVAILABLE UNTIL MARCH 1 2019.  Reservations made after March 1 will be $30 more per night. Make reservations early… you can always cancel.

REGISTER ONLINE NOW
Event details, reservation information, sample ride routes, and online registration available at the event page in the online Event Calendar:

Matamoras ? Where the F is Matamoras???????
 
Port Jervis, PA NY, that's where it's is................I know how to get there!


Ok, it says room rates go up $30 per night after March 1st! So, I'm booking my room now. Can always cancel if plans don't work out.


I haven't ridden in this neck of the woods much. Is Phoenicia Ny. nearby? Stayed there one night and paid a TON for run down old motel room. Had a lot of fun if I remember correctly :-) How about that Hawks nest road you always see on the cover of magazines? Is that close by?


Bikes are parked. Time to start planning next year!

I have never been to this area. Calendar marked for a big maybe
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover – Mark Twain.

The Hawks Nest is 10-15 minutes away, but the terrific ride north along the Delaware River continues north. Last year we found a great eclectic cafe just less than an hour north of Hawks Nest...  Cafe Adella Dori, 33 Lower Main St, Callicoon, NY.   https://www.adelladori.net/

Phoenicia, NY is northeastern Catskill Mountains region and about 1:30 hour ride through some great back roads.

Check the rally event page to download sample routes and GPS files so that you can begin planning your trip.

Just tried to make reservations and got no answer at the listed number. 

I tried to call as well and also got no answer.  I reached out by email to our contact at the hotel and was informed "...we are getting a new system and they keep disconnecting our phone system."

Hopefully the situation is resolved soon.

Responding to an older post.......... can't believe you've never ridden in that area.

Hawk's Nest is along the road (Rte. 97) west out of Port Jervis..... but you probably figured that out.





Since you're into making glass art objects, you might be interested in checking out Gillinder Glass in Port Jervis. I took their tour the last time I was up in the area:



I may take it again this spring.

Spoke to the hotel the other day and rooms in our block are filling up nicely.


Remember that the discounted room rates listed are only available until the end of February. Book now - you can always cancel if plans change.

What should I expect if I can only get there Saturday afternoon & evening?
If my bike doesn't sell by then I may want to show it off.
(Another make me walk home deal perhaps).
I can definitely amuse myself until dinnertime.

On SAT most folks begin returning from riding early afternoon. You can hang out and meet many COG members and enjoy witty parking lot conversations. If you register for the rally you can join us for the group dinner (the majority of the rally fee covers the SAT evening buffet)

Jack Frederick recently handed me a map with a route he traced that follows the Delaware River north.  I attached the GPX file for the 159 mile ride that also includes some loops around lakes and a park.  Feel free to download and ride.   :motonoises:

Yasgur's farm, the site of the Woodstock music festival that spawned the album, is real close to that route.

I haven't been to the museum but there's a little gravel parking lot near the spot where the stage was and I stopped there far a quick photo.
