The Grand Tours Starts in 2 Months

So we are at the end of January and last minute sponsors are coming in. Passports will start to be distributed around March 5th and participants have already started signing up.

I am currently working on the PDF brochure outlining annual events so you can plan your trips. We are also doing the final touches on the Tour outline and how it works.

The Motorcycle Grand Tour of Virginia 2017 was established to give our participants a reason to see what Virginia has to offer. There are so many wonderful sites, roads, beautiful scenery and artisan areas to be enjoyed. So take your time, enjoy what each town has to offer and most of all RELAX. It’s not a race, it’s a mini vacation.

As a reminder, our sponsors have paid to be part of this tour and your patronage to their businesses is an essential part of this Tour. Don’t forget to save all your receipts. You will have the ability to use your smartphone to send along with the pictures of your travels. I personally want to thank ALL of our sponsors for your participation in making this Grand Tour work.

So stop and look around each sponsor’s business, if something strikes you buy it but always be respectful of each sponsor. They are running a business and all customers are treated in order. So don’t run in and if they are busy with customers or a breakfast/lunch and dinner rush, be patient. They paid alot of money to be part of this and they are the ones making the prizes especially the Grand Prize available for each participant to try to win.  Without our Sponsors, this Tour would not be possible.

IT’S A BRAND NEW YEAR!!!

I hope everyone had a very Happy Holiday and a safe New Year.

There’s always alot to get done before we ring in the New Year. We have family and friends to visit with and good wishes to give. Now we have entered a New Year and it’s time to work on resolutions (yeah, right!) but it’s also a time to make plans.

The past few days have felt like Spring and motorcyclists have had the opportunity to check out that new ride they got from Santa or enjoy a cruise on your bike, you were sure was put away for the winter. Unfortunately, winter is not gone, but Spring is just around the corner and so is the Motorcycle Grand Tour of Virginia 2017.

Over the next couple of weeks, I will be compiling a list of events around each of our sponsors. The Grand Tour may be smaller than past years, but there is a positive note to that. It will give our participants more time to stop and enjoy each area that has been sponsored.

The Motorcycle Grand Tour of Virginia was organized for participants to tour areas of Virginia, that they might not have thought of. It was designed to give you a weekend getaway, see the beautiful landscape, peaceful roads to just cruise on, all that Virginia history can offer, festivals, music, artisans and so much more. It’s more than just collecting stamps to win prizes, it’s an experience you can look back on for years to come.

Registration is open and just $35 to sign up. There are wonderful prizes and a $1000 grand prize. So, Sign Up Today.

Sale of Passports are Going On NOW!!! – Join us for a great ride! REGISTER 2017 GRAND TOUR ONLINE HERE

Southwestern Virginia is Beautiful

So I have completed the 2nd leg of my planned trips. This one took me from Harrisonburg, VA all the way to Bristol, VA. The leaves on the trees had just started turning, but by the end of my trip, they were really bringing out the colors. I was attempting to take pictures to post, but I do live by Murphy’s Law, and my camera decided NOT to be cooperative. I met alot of great people who were kind and helpful. A special thanks to the Motorcycle Dealers and the businesses, in this corridor that I just popped in on and they were gracious enough to give me some time to speak to them about the Motorcycle Grand Tour. There is alot of interest, but won’t know the final results until next week.

Smyth County did forward the following events that are upcoming in 2 weeks. It would be worth the ride and the leaves should be at their best by then. So make plans to attend these events, they are for a good cause and an even better reason to Getaway.
