They say you gotta keep things interesting so for this years run, a brand new route and new stops. As usual we’ll start and end at the Celoron Rib fest, and the ride will again include both New York and Pennsylvania, however as shown on the map below this year we’ll go to some new stops, into Warren County to Columbus, PA; then back into Chautauqua County to Sherman, NY; and then to the Dunkirk Pier in the North County. Once again this year the Axemen have donated their time to iron out an exciting new route that’s safe and enjoyable, and have been working out escorts for us in several key areas as well.
As always, all the money raised from this event goes to the CUE (Community United Effort foundation), to support their important work assisting in cases of missing persons as well as providing crucial support to their families. This is an issue unfortunately that is near and dear to many families throughout our local communities as well as nationwide, and the generous support of your participation will continue to make this endeavor a success.
The venue for the event is excellent being held on the 4th day, which is the big finale Saturday, of the Celoron Rib fest at the village park on Chautauqua Lake. The amenities are plenty and there is no shortage of fun and activities with a lot of Rib and other food vendors, merchandise, beer and wine tents, a band shell with live bands, a classic car show, this year will have fireworks, and more. For those locally or coming in from out of town the day before, Friday night is bike night at the rib fest as well.
This whole event as well as the ride to find em motorcycle run just keeps getting better every year and we hope to keep making this run bigger and bigger, drawing more and more people from a wider area and visitors from a far. If your considering becoming one them check out all this are has to offer and make a vacation of it. There a plenty of nearby accommodations from hotels to campgrounds to marinas and cottage rentals as well as lots to do.
Some exciting news already for next years run, is right next to the rib fest venue there will be a 4star resort hotel (pictured here) which is part of the village’s overall lakefront and boardwalk redevelopment.
So it’s gonna be a great year and we hope to see individual bikers and clubs from near and far there as a part of this growing effort. We’ll have trophies and cash prizes for the poker run winners and a club trophy for the biggest group, as well as drawings and raffles, and a whole lot of fun!
