Isle of Man(hattan) New Year's Day Ride

This is an East Village tradition that kicks off from the Sidewalk Cafe and loops the island of Manhattan no matter how cold or bad the weather.

It's all very loose, last year we started gathering late morning and kicked off around 12ish when the founder and organizer showed up to lead the ride.

    This is an important annual event in NYC motorcycle culture, but this ride rapidly turns into chaos as soon as the pack hits the FDR. The way riders deal with each other and with traffic makes this by far the most dangerous ride I do all year. Can't wait till next year to try and survive it again! ;o)

      Gary, you have a long way to travel for a short bike ride that involves a lot of standing around so I can completely understand. Be well and see you at Javits!

    I'm out gentlemen. There is just too much "stuff" and ice and snow on the way from my house to the city. Have fun!!!

      No worries Myron! This event is proving itself to be a little dicey. I bailed last year from the Ramapo Midnight Madness for the same reason. This run is easier to do if you already live here... :o)

      I will test before and after to see if that's actually the case.

    I won't ride while snowing- but so far, the farthest out forecast I've seen is for the 31st, saying it will be sunny and 40 degrees... where are you finding a forecast for New Year's Day?

      Only feels like 11? Back in the old days we used to push our bikes uphill barefoot in the snow when it was 11! And don't get me started about gloves...

    If it's snowing and not safe to ride then we should err on the side of caution. Keep watching those forecasts....

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
