Gettysburg Battlefield Ride

Ride departs from Maryland Court House. Take a ride back in time as we head off to the Gettysburg Battlefield in Pennsylvania. The battle took place over the 4th of July so we return 155 years later.

NOTE: we have a special departure point for this ride. Jeb Stuart rode through the town of Rockville on the way to the battle, so we will start in Rockville, on Maryland Avenue, in front of the Montgomery County Circuit Court. There is no gas and no bathrooms here.

From there, we follow Jeb's path north until we reach the PA line, and then we'll follow a Union advance. Once inside the park, we'll ride around then have lunch at our favorite pie place, then ride the battlefield some more, stopping to take our annual group picture at Little Round Top.

From there we head to Battlefield Harley-Davidson before heading for home. This is an all day ride into history. Length of ride: 132 total miles, 45 highway. 7 stops are planned. (JH)

2nd Annual Hillbilly Heaven Ride

Ride departs from District H-D. Since we had to cancel during tax season and now the sun is supposed to be out in its full glory, let's finally take that quick trip to heaven! Well, at least Hillbilly Heaven Bar and Grill in Berkeley Springs, WV. We'll do our best to stay on the back roads and wind our way through Western Maryland and into Wild and Wonderful West Virginia. There are lots of curves and hills (some straight boring roads are included).

On the way back we'll take a short trek through Virginia to complete a three state ride and end up back at District HD. Length of ride: 195 total miles, 0 highway. 2 stops are planned. (MB)

Williamsport River Rat Run

Ride departs from District H-D. Join us for a beautiful country ride to the Williamsport HOG Chapter's Annual "River Rat Run", which is a poker run with some fabulous roads. Williamsport has really improved this event and it's now set-up in front of the dealership, has rides going out approximately every half hour, is well organized, there's food, and it's a great experience.

The weather for this event is usually very hot so make sure to bring sunscreen and plenty of water. We will take a scenic and challenging route both going and returning so make sure your tires are inflated and in good condition. Please arrive on time, gassed up and ready to ride. See you then.

Please note there is a portion of the ride down RT 7 in VA. Otherwise we will stick to the back roads. Length of ride: 125 total miles, 20 highway. 3 stops are planned. (ML)

Let's Dance!

The dancing goes on late into the night, but people can leave whenever they want. The park is located adjacent to the Clara Barton Parkway with easy access to 495. (JH)

MDAMRA Ride to Harley's 115th National Rally in Milwaukee

Ride departs from Williamsport Harley-Davidson, 10210 Governor Lane Boulevard, Williamsport, MD. Sidestands up at 10:30.

See the information sheet for details about the Maryland/Delaware American Motorcycle Riders Association (MDAMRA) ride to Milwakee to participate in the 115th Harley-Davidson National Motorcycle Rally.

This 8-day ride will completely circle Lake Michigan. Leaving on Monday, August 27, 2018, the trip will take you through Michigan, across the Mackinac Strait over the infamous Mackinac Bridge (longest suspension span in the U.S.), along scenic US-2 in Michigan's upper Peninsula, south into Wisconsin, arriving in Milwaukee on Wednesday.

Three days at the National Rally will give plenty of time for sightseeing and Rally activities before heading out on Sunday to complete the Lake Michigan loop around Chicago and returning home on Monday, September 3, Labor Day.

Instructions for hotels and the ride route are provided in the attached flier. All riders must make their own hotel arrangements.

Register for the National Rally directly and get more information from this Harley- Davidson website.

This ride is most appropriate for experienced, fearless riders. Daily distances vary, but average 350-miles/day and even more on the ride back to Maryland.
