Well I have to say that Mother Nature has been good to us this Winter. Folks, we are in the home stretch. I see March as the “Over the Hump Month.” It’s pretty much all downhill from here until Spring arrives and the car show, cruise and bike night season is right around the corner. In fact, if you check out the list on recordonline.com/myride, there are some shows, bike runs and cruise nights that have already come in.
Speaking of those, many ask when they should send me their fliers or their cruise night announcements. The answer is, yesterday. It’s NEVER too early to send me the details. There are only so many weekends in the Summer so you will want to grab a date and get it listed as soon as you can.
As far as information, there is certain information that is really important to have on a flier, and that is; what, where (include street address), when, time, rain date, cost, and who is hosting along with a contact number or email. Bikers out there love a good bike night, so if you are planning one, please send me the info. Submissions to the My Ride Events listing is always free.
If you are an eatery or an ice cream stand that has a bike night or cruise night or just an establishment that welcomes car clubs, cruisers or bikers as a place that they are welcome to to stop and eat when they are out cruising, it would be beneficial for you to fill out the “Grab a Bite” form (on this page) for feature in “My Ride.”
I’m sure all the car and bike folks are just itching to get out there, just as bad as me. I recently purchased a beautiful 1953 Pontiac Chieftain that I just can’t wait to get behind the wheel of and my bobber “Matilda” received new wiring through the handiwork of Evan Favaro at Speakeasy Motors in Wallkill, so I can’t wait to grab those handlebars. I wasn’t able to ride the bike at all last year, so I am looking forward to it.
So, until the temperature gets to at least 70 degrees, the roads are free from salt and sand and the mud dries up in my yard, I will continue to plan my Spring and Summer calendar for car shows, cruises, bike runs and rallies that I may attend. Seeing all the events coming up when the warmer weather arrives gives me something to look forward to, but until then, I will continue with my favorite cold weather pastime, ice fishing!
Ride safe everyone and I will see you all out there!
