2019 RIDE THE RIBBON
« on: January 12, 2019, 04:23:51 pm »
It's time to block off the last weekend in August for RIDE THE RIBBON.  We will be staying at the same motel this year.

AMERICAS BEST in John Day.

Bob has handed the reigns over to me this year, he will however, be there with all his knowledge and experience.  I will be doing contact with the motel and making supper plans for Saturday.  I can't fill his shoes, but I have a computer so feel free to contact me here or msg me.
This is a friendly get together of like minded riders

I am also considering looking for a printer to make us a shirt.  anyone with knowledge of a good inexpensive one let me know.  Also, if a AD or AAD has any trinkets to offer up, we would appreciate them.  Thanks!

We are looking forward to a fun weekend.

I edited above post.  I had May on my mind,  early in the morning, and I did not multi[-task well.  Sorry for the confusion.

We have finally gotten the rates for the Ribbon Ride.  Americas Best is 100.00 a night.  It is 10.00 dollars cheaper for one bed at days inn, but we have had some bad experiences there.  Better to pay the extra and be able to communicate with the group, if need be.


Ashley is the office manager.  When you call mention Ride the Ribbon.  Feel free to call me w/ questions.      :ecomcity:

248 819 1500


update:  I called the motel last night.  I was quoted 99.00.  I asked if they had discounts.  Yep.  $89.00 for seniors.

For a newbie to this ride...what is it exactly.  The name is catchy, but doesn't tell me much.

Thanks,
Chris

This is a meet and greet.  We meet at the motel Friday, gassed up and ready to ride Saturday morning.  People figure out who is riding with whomever.  get up Saturday morning and meet for breakfast across the street.  kick stands up 9 am, to a destination of your choice.  last year we had 3 groups head out.


Main group heads east on hwy 26, to hwy 245, over Mt Dooley and the little dragon.  Then west on the 11 to Sumpter, big swap meet and food break.  continue w on the 7 to the 26 back to john day.
  180 + corners going over mt Dooley.


make a few stops at points of interest.  artesian well, historical marker...
Hope to see you there this year.  There is  also a camp ground a few blocks away

 :welcome:

Really like how you told readers when, where and duration in the announcement. 

Past announcements of some rides have only stated ride titles (omitting where, when, how long) - doing so gave the impression (to me as a newcomer) that rides were an insiders' thing and not very open to newcomers. 
Your post shows openness and welcome...  :beerchug:

Just called and the man answering the phone was quoting me @$110...with a Senior Discount.  I'll call tomorrow and try to speak to Ashley.

Update:  Called and spoke to Ashley.  All is well.  :)
