Brave Participants Show at the First Mystery Stop!

The weather is definitely not on our side this year! It was cold and wet at Cooter’s Place!!!

BUT….We did have 23 Riders brave the weather and show up in Luray Virginia. Despite the weather, the participants had fun, took a look around, got something to eat and took in the memorabilia from the TV Show Dukes of Hazzard.

I’d like to say “Thank You” to Alma and Ben (Cooter), who gave us permission to use their Grand Opening as our first Mystery Stop.

Our Second Mystery Stop will be May 27th….But that’s all you get right now. The rest will be revealed in 6 days….

ANOTHER GREAT WEEKEND!

It was another beautiful weekend to get out and ride! We have some great pictures on our FB Page and our current Participants are well on their way to earning their minimum points to be eligible for the $1000 Grand Prize at the End of the Tour.

If you haven’t registered, do so now and have your passport by next weekend. Right now the forecast for next weekend is mid to upper 60’s and more importantly, NO RAIN!!! I do believe Spring has finally Sprung. Also remember that once you get your minimum sponsor points for the Grand Prize, you don’t have to be present to win. You do have to be present at the End of Tour Party for the rest of the prizes though. The Party is alot of fun and one you don’t want to miss.

I will be revealing the location of the 1st Mystery Stop at the end of the week. This stop will be alot of fun and who doesn’t like a good scavenger hunt. But in this case, it’s a human hunt. I’ll be on FB the whole day letting you know where I am at the site to get your 10 Bonus Points. Here are a couple of hints, there will be music, there’s a cool country shop and lots of other things to see. Have any idea where it is???

Have a Good Evening and I’ll be back soon!!!

THE WEEKEND IS FINALLY HERE!

For most of us, today was a really crappy day and it’s still not over. I see dark clouds as I look out of my office and waiting for the skies to open up again. But the good news is, this weekend is going to be great riding weather. We have had 9 more people sign up, just today. So it’s never too late to start the Grand Tour.

We also have some great participants that are helping to make this Tour a success. Cal Hagan will be forwarding GPS files for the tour that are compatible with a Garmin GPS. This can help you locating some of the sponsors if you use a GPS. So as soon as the files are forwarded to me, I will be posting on this site.

If you haven’t registered, do so now and you could be riding this weekend!!!

YOU CAN STILL REGISTER!

I’ve gotten quite a few calls in the past couple of days concerning registration.

REGISTRATION will remain open! The Grand Tour runs from now through October 20th, so there is plenty of time to register and earn your points. We started the Grand Tour a week early because everyone was getting cabin fever and last Saturday the weather was perfect for riding, so it was time to start.

This doesn’t mean you are behind or won’t have time to do the Grand Tour. This event is a “Do as you want”, there is no specific order you need to complete the Tour and for those that have time restraints, you only have to earn 127 Sponsored Points to be eligible for the $1,000 Grand Prize.

So get your registration in, I’ll mail your passport and you can begin the Tour. It’s as easy as that. What’s a better way to try to win $1000, you get to get out on your bike, enjoy beautiful scenery, fun events, great food and good company with your riding companions.

The 1st Mystery Stop will be revealed at the end of next week! Have a good evening and I’ll get back soon.
