This year's ride is taking place on July 24th, 2021. We will start and end at Big Buck Brewery, located at 550 S. Wisconsin Street, in Gaylord, MI. Registration and check-in begins at 8:00 a.m., and kickstands should be up at around 10:00 a.m. We do ask that everyone please try to pre-register on this website so we can properly account for traffic control, food/beverages, etc.
The ride route for this year takes us from Gaylord, east to Alpena, north to Rogers City, west to Indian River, and then south back to Gaylord. It is approximately 180 miles of meandering roads, that is police-escorted and all/most intersections blocked for safety.
When we return to Big Buck, we will have live music, a silent auction, raffles, and of course, FOOD!!! Big Buck provides us with an incredible meal, which is included in your registration fee. It's important that you check in with us before the ride so we can get you your food ticket. Non-alcoholic refreshments are provided as well. We have a great time, and everything we do is to benefit Trent's baby girl and Foundation 14.
There is free rustic camping in Ellsworth at our farm. You're welcome to set up a tent, camper, or any other means of sleeping you're comfortable with. We don't have electrical hookups or running water for RV's, but we'll have porta-johns and generators are perfectly fine. Join us if you can!
If you'd prefer a bed, Baymont Inn in Gaylord has a block of rooms. Call them at 989-731-6331 to book at a discounted rate. We are also working on securing blocks at other hotels as needed.
