Akron Cleveland Sport Touring Meetup Group based in Akron OH is for seasoned (at least one full season) MOTORCYCLE riders who are interested in riding the roads. We are well organized, sponsored, experienced and safe. Are you seeking a MOTORCYCLE riders' group with mature and safe motorcyclists? This group is for you. Do you want to avoid being part of a rolling road block? This group is for you. If you are a hot-dogger or thrill seeker (squid), we are not a group for you. Please be aware that Akron Cleveland Sport Touring is a group for MOTORCYCLE riders that have road miles and is not suitable for beginners. OUR RIDING STYLE There are as many different styles of riding as there are bikes to ride, and so it's important to match your riding style with the right group. The Akron Cleveland Sport Touring promotes safety above all else. We are not blowing through red lights, annoying other vehicles on the road, pulling wheelies or racing one another. However, this is NOT a group for beginners. On quiet county roads we sometimes let the horses run hard as we enjoy the curves and twisties. But, most importantly, we will be riding within our skill level to ensure our own safety and the safety of those around us.
When you sign up with this group you will be required to show proof of a valid license with your Motorcycle Endorsement and valid proof in insurance.
Some of our rides have a destination; some of our rides are the destination. We enjoy relaxed paced & spirited rides consisting of ½ day, full day, and weekend getaways. We're all serious riders here, many with several decades of experience. We are not bikers, we are RIDERS. Our goal is to ride, build friendships, and create great circle of riders that have fun!
We ask that you ride safe, respect your fellow riders and enjoy the company of others. We obey all traffic laws and never obstruct traffic by blocking intersections; this practice is against the law.
Alcohol use prior to or during ANY group ride is NOT PERMITTED. Any member found breaking this rule will be banned from Akron Cleveland Sport Touring immediately.
You MUST have a valid driver's license with a motorcycle endorsement (M).
