Sponsors are all set!!! I have just updated the Participant Guidelines so please review and know that these will not change.
I am still waiting on the mock ups for the Grand Tour Shirts that we will be putting on our website for purchase. You will have a choice of a T-Shirt or a Polo shirt. These will be on sale until September 1st so I can have them in time for the End of Tour Party.
I have started the spreadsheet of Participants currently signed up for the Tour, the patches should be here by the 1oth along with the Passports. If all goes like it’s suppose to, Grand Tour passports will be in the mail by the 11th. I don’t anticipate a delay so keep your fingers crossed.
I am also working on setting up for the Photo Contest we will have with this Grand Tour. That I will need my website GURU Eva to help me with. Also I’m still updating the Sponsor list on the Tour and prizes, so keep checking back. It’s crunch time now. ONLY 32 days till the start.
Everyone have a Great Day!!!

Less than 2 months before the Motorcycle Grand Tour of Virginia begins. Riders are signing up and we still have sponsors coming in. Lots of great prizes are still coming in also. Let’s not forget the GRAND PRIZE of $1,000.00.
I’m still finalizing the specifics and events for the Tour, but will be ready by March 1st. There are so many sites to see and beautiful scenery within the Commonwealth of Virginia and picking different things to do is a challenge, but I will prevail.
Let’s also welcome some new Sponsors:
Platinum Sponsor: Fredericksburg Motor Sports
Gold Sponsor: Valley Cycle Center
Bronze Sponsors: Cycle City Corp, Indian Motorcycles of Fredericksburg, and Village Motorsports
So it’s the final countdown for Sponsors and it just keeps getting BETTER!
Tim’s Rivershore Restaurant and Crabhouse, Tim’s II at Fairview, Tim’s at L,ake Anna Restaurant and Crabhouse and Tim’s at Coles Point have joined as a joint Gold Sponsor. Please check out their websites and FB pages and let them know you.
Ken’s Cycle Center has upgraded their sponsorship to SILVER. Visit their website and FB page and show your appreciation for their support in the Grand Tour.
More Updates Soon!
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.
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.
