Old Bike Ride 7

May 9, 2009

Open to all riders of old motorcycles

The seventh edition of the Old Bike Ride, conceived and still directed by Bob Ohman, is being sponsored by Norton Colorado. The purpose of the Old Bike Ride is to encourage people to bring out their old motorcycles and ride them. The approximately 125-mile route takes us over some of the finest motorcycling roads of the Front Range. As before, it is open to anyone riding a motorcycle 25 years old or earlier (1984 or earlier). Furthermore, a rider over the age of 65 can ride whatever they wish. All participants receive a spiffy decal, whether they finish the route or not. There will be a chase vehicle that can transport a disabled motorcycle (perish the thought!).

Location and Start Time

This year the ride will start from a new location: The Golden Hotel, 800 11th St., Golden (corner of 11th and Washington Ave in downtown Golden, on the south side of Clear Creek). Maps will be distributed starting at 8:00 AM. Rider’s Meeting at 9:15. The ride will start at 9:30 promptly.

Breakfast, Lunch, and Beer

The Golden Hotel will provide a cart selling hot coffee and breakfast burritos in the parking lot. They also have a full restaurant for sit-down dining starting at 7 am.

There will be a stop for lunch at The Millsite Inn, near Ward on the Peak to Peak Highway, and the ride will end at the Biergarden of the Golden City Brewery, 920 12th St., Golden, three blocks from the Golden Hotel. You’re responsible for paying for your own food and drink.
