Hi everyone it's good to be back and am looking forward to a few fun rides this year with everyone, I thought to get back into the swing of things Id setup a nice easy ride that should be not only fun but very memorable? The 3095 ride is one a few of us did back in 2011 and the ride down 77-S has never left my mind and still leaves a lump in my throat every now and then, I'm sure you'll see why at some point!

Will be meeting just up the road from the starting point with kickstands up at 10:00am to leave Subway together; So please be there "fueled up" early! Also if you plan on getting something to eat or anything else keep in mind where leaving Subway at 10:00am. After that will all pull into the "Days Inn" at once this way will stay together for the whole ride to the Ohio Veterans' Memorial Park. From there grab someone to hang out with and enjoy the day of events... I know this seems like a long time from 10:00am to leaving on the ride at 1:00pm but  it's necessary due to the amount of riders and it gives us a chance to meet and look at the other motorcycles there.

This year's ride is a little different. The 3,095 Plus Freedom Ride is to honor all of our Heroes. You can sponsor a flag for anyone who has served in the military. Help us honor those who served during war or peace, during any conflict and whether they are still with us, retired from the military or if they gave their life in service to our nation. If you plan on attending you must register online ASAP and there are alot of choices that must be made PLEASE NOTE: Flags must be ordered by May 1, 2013 to have them in time for the ride. @ http://www.3095ride.com/

A short video if some of us pulling in back in 2011 see if you can find us? Hint; Am riding a rear and rarely seen anywhere else in the world "Yamaharley" LOL!!

Another video to give you a look at the size of this event, "There are no 99ers in this video"  http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=Nn1QoMc2kwk&NR=1

Ride Rating: I guess Id say a 3 out of 5

This is surely a ride for thous that have ridden in formation at highway speeds and are completely confident and always aware of there surroundings at all times.

    We are glad we were able to make it there. I've never seen so many bikes in one place at one time. Hopefully someone will find our flag as it was blown off like so many others along the route.

    Top notch event! Very well put together. It was an honor to be a part of the 1500ish??? bikes paying tribute to our soldiers. BIG KUDOS to Veronica and her crew for doing a great job.

    I think of the soldiers and POWs that this ride honors. They did not/do not get to skip a day because of rain. A little precipitation is not going to stop me from showing my gratitude to them.

      I think that's awesome J but the OVMP will not call the ride for the rain, that is up to the Summit County Sheriff's Department. They said they will not risk injury to any of you if they do not think it's safe to ride. By satellite, it looks like the storm is going to miss us so we should be good to go!!!

      And my daughter is in Afghanistan as we speak so I'm right there with you...I don't have a bike but I would walk this route for her to thank her for her service!

    I hope to see and meet all of you guys there...this is going to be a fantastic day for the park supporting our veterans! We are unveiling the Purple Heart Monument following the ride and before the concert! If you choose not to take your bike out due to weather pending conditions, please take a car and make the drive to support our Purple Heart Veterans! It is truly an amazing addition to this park this year!

    Hi Everyone, we had a meeting tonight to work out some set up details. In the meeting it was discussed that the vendor we are working with to make the flags is in the process of contact individuals that recently had a flag mailed or if they did not mail your flag they will also be contacting you so that you can pick your flag up when you arrive at Days Inn. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to seeing you at the ride! If you have not received your flag or phone call by tomorrow evening please contact us so that we can further investigate for you.

    Has anyone received their flag or t-shirt yet?

      And for Darryl, they didn't get them all mailed out at the same time as my husband is in charge of turning the registrations in and we have been out of state visiting our daughter before her deployment so in return, Gameday got a little behind. We apologize for any inconvience but any shirt and flag that did not get mailed out will be on site at Days Inn the day of the ride.

    An FYI for those who have never done a HUGE event: There will be thousands of bikes on this run. While it may sound like a blast (which it will be) it is not the ride for new riders. The amount of bikes on this can be intimidating and it is imperative that you are confident in your skills before signing up. Just be sure of yourself, we don't want any 99ers (or anyone else) to get hurt.

      It was 2800 bikes in 2011 when Darel, Jamie and I rode, it was tight inbetween and side by side, I rode next to a trike and he had a tendency to drift in the curves toward me..I staggered a little everytime we got near a curve once I learned his pattern. But your absolutely right, no place for a novice.
