Help support your MeetupChip in
Central Ohio Riders Meetup Group based in Columbus 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 Central Ohio Riders is a group for MOTORCYCLE riders that have at least 2,000 road miles and is NOT suitable for beginners.
Membership is capped at 200 riders. If you would like to join us, click the join button and your membership will stay in pending until an opening is available. Membership in this group will stay actively dynamic and will be culled. If a year goes by and you haven't participated in a Meetup, you will be removed to leave a space for another rider that wants to join and participate. We welcome you to re-join again when you want to participate, as long as there is an opening.
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 Central Ohio Riders 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. 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 Central Ohio Riders immediately.
You MUST have a valid driver's license with a motorcycle endorsement (M). Members drivers licenses and proof of motorcycle insurance will be verified prior to their first ride with the group. While this may seen like an intrusion or a hassle, please understand that we are only doing this to be sure that everyone is safe. Would you want to ride 1 or 2 seconds in front of or behind someone who has not taken a basic test ? Or is not insured ? Once verified you will have an extra title added to your profile. This will ensure you are not asked again as well as letting other members know you have an endorsement and insurance.
When your Membership is approved, please read the COR Rules of the Road page so you know what is expected on our rides.
Please no scooters.
