Update & Events

Welcome to April!

The cold hasn't given up on us yet, but we finally have local rides in our very near future.  We have a lot going on in this month, starting tonight, Tuesday April 3rd.  Join us in Milford at the River's Edge Brewing Company for an informal gathering to hear about the weather in Tennessee and our upcoming rides.

Our first ride of the season is the Maumee ADV Ride, where we take the bikes down to an off-road practice area just west of Toledo.  Later in the month, we have one of the favorite annual events, the TCD Urban Cross.  We will be exploring the corners of the our namesake city once again.  If you haven't attended, please plan on it this year.  

We did have a big contingent travel to March Moto Madness in Tellico Plains, TN a couple of weeks ago.  The cold and snow didn't stop them, but it tried to.  Check out the ride report on the club website.

Hope to see you soon!
