Tour de Panacea - Wine/Cigars/Motorcyc­les and Rolling Thunder

3 days of Wine, Cigars and Motorcycles May 25 – 27, 2013

CigarVolante is the combination of those indulgences that make life rich and full; things like cigars, wine, motorcycles, women that ride motorcycles, good friends; all the good stuff. After two years that has culminated in the Tour de Panacea!

Tour de Panacea is wine, cigars, wine and cigars, motorcycles and a love of the freedom. The Tour de Panacea is the celebration of the freedom to do ALL of that. We will be riding to two of the Virginia Wine and Cigar Trail wineries and, in between, riding in Rolling Thunder in Washington DC. We invite you to join us for a springtime ride, a tribute to the heroes that have kept us safe, and wine and cigars at two of the wineries of the Virginia Wine and Cigar Trail. Paul Bush, President of Flat Bed Cigar Company, manufacturers of Panacea Cigars will be joining us. Ride with him from Pennsylvania, ride with us from Central Virginia or meet us at Unicorn Winery at 3:00 pm on Saturday. You choose. That’s freedom!

Join us for the ride, we’d enjoy your company. Join us for wine, cigars, good food and entertainment both nights. The cost is just $35 per night and ticketing information is on the Official Website.

    Great wineries who provided wonderful wine, good food and entertainment. The first day was chilly across Skyline Drive but the scenery was spectacular. The tour was the coolest in several years (thank you Global Warming) and perfect for the estimated 1 million riders. Maybe next year!

    Love the enthusiasm! There are more details posted on (as well as a great virtual patch for the ride) and Addresses are on the site but I will be "Kick Stands Up" at the Videos by the Lake parking lot just off of Seminole Trail on Lake Monticello between 9:00 and 9:30 am. We will be riding to the Alpine Inn on the I-64 Entrance to Skyline Drive where we will be dallying for for a bit, leaving between 10:30 and 11 to head up Skyline Drive to Amissville. This point will be a good place for the Harrisonburg, Roanoke, Lynchburg etc riders to meet us. (We will be at the parking lot at the bottom of the hill in front of the closed restaurant). We will be stopping at the Visitors Center about 2/3 of the way to Rte 211 on Skyline Drive if you get left behind and want to catch up.

    If I weren't going to do a 4 day ride to western PA cigar crawl the previous weekend I'd be in, but the best I could hope for is to make one of the legs and have a smoke with you guys!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
