Maple Festival Ride

The annual tree hugger’s tribute ride to sweet sap shall soon be upon us. Once again, Ron Perlik will lead hungry motorcyclists to pancake nirvana at the Highland County Maple Festival in western Virginia. This link provides more information about the festival. http://www.highlandcounty.org/maplefestival.html We’ll depart on Saturday, March 8 at 9 am from the Denny’s restaurant north of Warrenton, VA at 7323 Comfort Inn Drive. Our route will traverse Rt. 211 toward Harrisonburg, Rt. 33 into West Virginia and Rt. 220 south to Highland County. The return ride will include Rt. 250 toward Staunton. Dining will be in Blue Grass or Monterey, followed by an optional visit to a local sugar bush (maple farm). This adventure usually runs about 300 miles round-trip from Warrenton. The rain date will be the following weekend on Saturday the 15th. For more information, Ron Perlik can be reached at[masked]-4803.

    Sorry guys but i don't think i can make it because i'll have to leave Fredericksburg at 8am to get to Denny's by 9am. It will still be 30 to 35 degrees at 8am. I don't think it will get up to 50 degrees till like 11am. I could leave at 10am to get there by 11am but i don't think you can can wait that long.

    Well you guys never (hardly) manage to catch up with you but, I'm thinking of the maple again. Have a different new to me ride ( RT ) - that I've put 15K on this past year. Riding all year so the 50 degrees expected should seem hot. Ha ha, but true. Look forward to catching up with you all, God willing Regard Rob

    I've heard pancakes with real maple syrup cures cabin fever :) Looking forward seeing everyone and getting out of the house for something other than shoveling snow.

    Hope you feel better Jack - maybe you will feel better by Saturday...
