Brooksville Biker Rodeo

Riders:

Not sure if you have heard about the “Party in the Pasture”, but it has been going on for ten years. It is an ole fashioned biker get-to-gether and can be raunchy in the evening.  But there is very good security and no one has ever been hurt.  The event offers many bike vendors and plenty of Rock music.

As you can see, this is the last one ever to be held. I propose we continue our pin quest (maybe a patch) and pay this final event a visit. The proceeds benefit the DD214 Foundation (Veterans). The DD 214 Foundation is a 501-c3 Not for Profit organization of ALL BIKER Volunteers dedicated to helping our Needy Veterans. The foundation distributes monies directly through Marine Corps League 708 in Brooksville Florida. The Money is presented to Needy Vets regardless of Branch of Service.  To date the DD214 Foundation has collected and distributed $116,000.00 in aid to those who proudly served, and where wounded in the line of duty protecting our freedom. 

They primarily get their donations through this event, so let’s support them.  There is a $10 entrance fee, no pets are allowed and it is for 21 years old and over. The event is held at 27151 Soult Rd, Brooksville, FL 34601. I propose we meet at the McDonald Parking lot located at 104 West Bearss Avenue in Tampa, Fl 33613 at 9:30 a.m. with a KSU at 9:45 a.m.  We will take a nice round about ride north up to Brooksville – Bearss Ave west to Livingston Ave. Then north to Hwy 54, west, then go north again to Old Pasco Road.  That will take us to Hwy 52.  From there we will go east to Hwy581 (a great twisty road with some surprisingly big hills). We will take Hwy 581 north, then east on Hwy 572 (Powel Rd) to  Hwy 541 (Spring Lake Hwy). We will cross Hwy 50 (now it become Mondon Hill Rd), and follow that to Soult Rd and go north from there on Sikes Cow Pen Rd to the event, about 11:45 a.m. arrival.

It will be a great 52 miles with plenty of turns, hills and scenery. Once we are at the event, you are on your own to enjoy it.  If your desire to stay with the crowd (Patriotic Riders) we will be returning back to Tampa at 2:00 p.m. and taking Hwy 41 south back.

    I may be relegated to tail gunner for the forceable future, but it was great seeming Rich and Star after such a long time. Quite a few new faces, but wonderful to be able to ride with the Patriotic Riders.

    Another great ride / route Rich and Star. Brooksville contains some beautiful country. My seeing a little of the beginning of the frozen t-shirt contest was.....different.
    I thought my corn dog was much better. Good seeing all again and others for my first time.

    If you don't mind me following you folks up to the rodeo, that would be great since you know some nice roads. I will ride with crew at 9:45 or later. What's best time to meetup. I see KSU for the women is 9:45 but did not see any specific time for the guys. I want to ride the twistiest most scenic route, whichever crew is going that route. Will check in morning for messages. My cut has the title of "President" on it, so will ride far in back of your crew and hope no one is offended. ;-) Just easier to follow you good folks if you don't mind. Thanks. #lonewolf1out

      I believe that is still the plan Terry. Girls leave first and guys will follow behind a little later.

  • Jack B.

    So true, however I don't plan on dying anytime soon, so I still have to manage what schekels I still have. So for the time being, a new tire is the way to go.

    May 4, 2014

  • Jack B.

    Sure. Just send me a check

    May 4, 2014

    • Dwayne

      You know the saying... If there's any money left over when you die, you didn't plan well.

    I am ready to go and Brooksville is a great place to ride. My first time ,,,,and last it appears,,,, to go to the Rodeo. See you all at Micky Dees.

    This is Rich, we will ride the same route. We will just leave at different times. That way we can cover the girls ride if there is a breakdown. It is by far the best route to go there. Very scenic with curves and hills. Though us guys may vary just a tad to ride all the hills.

    April 28, 2014

    • Dwayne

      "Very scenic with curves and hills". Are you talking about the girls or the ride?

    Star & Rich, since we are doing separate guy/girl ride for this and meeting up there, do we have two routes?
