    What a great time and very nice people. Can't wait to go to Niagara Falls with members of both groups. I hope everyone made it home safely.

  • Brad S.

    Very nice, 40+ bikes, everyone very friendly. Could have done with a little more back roads and a little less hi-way (may not have been possible in this case), but still a good time. Lunch was also very nice. Kick Stands Up welcomed Just-4-fun and at the end of the day you wouldn't know who belonged to which group. Would do it again in a heart beat!

  • Andrew C.

    Hello Renita,

    I'm new to the group and I'm considering this ride. I'll know better soon if the date works for me.

    That said, I live just south of you in Front Royal VA and was wondering what direction you were thinking of taking to Gaithersburg? (Hagerstown or Harpers Ferry?) If I am able to join this trip I wouldn't mind meeting in Martinsburg for the Hagerstown route or Harpers Ferry if you are going that way to Romano's.

    July 31, 2013

    • Renita

      Hi Andrew, I will be going through to Hagerstown, Md. If you want you can meet off I-81. I am planning to leave WV around 6:15 to meet the group in Gaithersburg,MD. Let me know either way what your plans are.

      July 31, 2013

    • Andrew C.

      I hadn't RSVP'ed to this because I knew there was some family activity planning going on. I was hoping I could make it but it turns out I can't. I will be sure to keep an eye on the event posting to come.

      August 5, 2013

  • Derek B.

    I have an EzPass, will that work for the ferry?

    July 24, 2013

    • Renita

      I don't belive it will work for the ferry, but it will work for the bay bridge.

      July 24, 2013

    • Derek B.

      Thanks. I'll have cash for that.

      July 25, 2013

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
